Type of SD Work

What We Do

Since its inception in 1997, SoL has worked with hundreds of teams and organizations to help them achieve their aspirations, and as equally important, their business results. SoL has become a partner of choice for many multinational for-profit and non-profit organizations as well as government agencies, in particular because of our holistic approach to the five disciplines of organizational learning. Specifically, SoL has distinguished itself from other providers as we:

* Build capacity, not dependency, for effective action in individuals, teams, and organizations in a way that is self-sustaining, replicable, and continuously evolving.

* Co-create learning processes with our clients that are grounded in real work and that help the clients develop new ways of thinking and acting over time.

* Offer access to a community of world-class organizations/ practitioners, consultants, and researchers with expertise and experience to master a vast array of organizational challenges and opportunities.

* Provide a thoroughly tested set of concepts, tools, methods, and processes that enable, accelerate, and diffuse learning to ensure breakthrough results.

SoL provides public and in-house programs based on Peter Senge's book "The Fifth Discipline: The Art and Practice of the Learning Organization". We also provide consulting, coaching and publications services in the field.
