We Listen First. At Lair Learning Alliance, we base our
business on the belief that each client, team, and organizational system is unique,
requiring a custom-designed approach. To ensure that we will meet your specific needs, we
place a priority on listening to you first and learning about your unique situation and
challenges. We utilize our own SCOPE® Discovery Process:

How We Work With You
1. Assess Needs and Fit – First we want to make sure
that what we do fits your needs. We use a combination of tools (interviews, surveys, Focus
groups, instruments, work samples, etc.) to discover where you are at, where you are going,
and breakthroughs needed to get to that place.
2. Focus on Outcomes – Here we narrow the focus of the assessment to
your specific objectives of the work right now within the larger business context.
3. Align Strategy – Learning only takes root in the workplace when it is
aligned with business vision, strategy, and support systems. What systems and structures
will support the learning? What will be done to make sure it grows on the job?
4. Design Learning Process – The process for learning that will work best
with you will be designed to incorporate your culture style, work practices, and scheduling
needs. Materials are custom-fitted to your environment for acceptance, accuracy, and
5. Do the work – The learning workshops, events, consultations, retreats or
the combination of these delivery modes are used to make the work come alive for your people
6. Learn and Grow – We will continuously work with you as a partner in the
learning process to make sure its working and what is not working is modified to do what is
We Design Learning to Fit Your Needs. To ensure maximum value for our clients, each learning
experience is custom-designed specifically to meet your needs. Although we use time-tested
and proven techniques, including consulting, workshops, presentations, and retreats, each
program is uniquely crafted to "fit" you and your situation. You won't find
cookie-cutter solutions at Lair Learning Alliance.
We Focus on Bringing People Together. Our core work focuses on bringing people together to
experience the excitement of creating goals together and devising strategic plans to achieve
those goals. Using learning and discovery, we help people develop workable processes and
generate enthusiasm and "buy-in" for implementing those processes to achieve their
mutual goals. We believe that when people work together to develop solutions, they achieve
the ownership necessary to accept accountability, work through change, and make positive
We Provide Learning that Works. As you can see from the "Bell" chart below, the
best learning-and the learning that is remembered-is achieved when those involved are
participating, active, passionate, and doing the real thing. At Lair Learning Alliance, we
wholeheartedly embrace this philosophy; that's a key reason why our programs are so
Our learning processes also use time as an advantage. For example, we may use 3 hours a week
over a pre-determined number of weeks. This allows time for individuals and teams to form
new habits and practice new skills. Delivering the course over time also allows time for
customization of material between sessions to continually meet any existing concerns and to
use relevant issues in the training process.
We're Energetic and Engaging. You don't have to worry about participants being bored or
uninvolved! Our delivery style is very energetic and learner-centered. We blend visual and
graphic facilitation, mini-lectures, thought-provoking demonstrations, team exercises, small
group work, and week-to week assignments to stimulate thinking, imagination, growth, and
learning. Our customers praise the learning experiences as "not only instructive and
productive, but fun!"
