Experiential Learning

Not Your Ordinary Learning Experience


Every Eagle’s Flight solution for leaders incorporates the power of experiential learning, whether it be delivered in-class or through virtual learning. By using practical and interactive activities, leaders begin to think differently about their job and build confidence to actually do things differently. By learning by doing, new competencies are developed, more information is retained, and learners are more likely to apply their new knowledge and skills back at work.

What You Can Expect

An Eagle’s Flight experiential learning program is unlike anything you or your leaders have seen before – it’s not another lecture, case study, or role-play. Through interactive, experiential-based learning leaders not only learn new skills and knowledge, but get the chance to put that learning into action and practice them as they apply to their life on the job. We frequently use our “40, 40, 20” formula when delivering training. This translates to 40 percent of the time spent on conviction and knowledge transfer, 40 percent on practice with that knowledge, and then 20 percent on how to apply the learning back on the job. This all comes together to produce a change in behaviors that deliver expected results. 


Why Experiential Learning? 

For over 30 years, experiential learning has been at the core of every Eagle's Flight leadership initiative, and that isn't going to change anytime soon. This is because when leaders personally experience the results that come from applying their existing behaviors in the experiential portion of training, they clearly see the link between their performance in the experience and the changes they need to make to maximize performance at work. A powerful debrief then reinforces the lessons learned in the experience and shows them exactly how to apply those lessons back on the job.

World-Class Facilitators Bring the Learning to Life

Our facilitators are thoroughly trained and carefully selected with your leaders and training goals in mind to ensure the best possible experience and results. During the training session, they are able to recognize which skills and abilities need more attention during the experience, as many programs support multiple training goals. They are then able to subtly guide the discussion in that direction to ensure all your key outcomes are met.


To do this effectively, prior to training your facilitator will meet with you to discuss the group dynamics, team challenges, as well as training goals so they can customize their message to meet the needs of your leaders and ensure your key learnings are covered to make the most of your training. With Eagle’s Flight's as your partner, this burden is alleviated from your internal resources and you can rest assured that Eagle's Flight has taken every step to maximize the impact of your investment.
