Our approach

We use experiential learning as the main approach in all of our workshops. Experiential learning is a holistic perspective that combines experience, perception, cognition and behaviour. Thus it is a powerful partner for organisations and individuals seeking to maximise their performance. NTL has been the premier source of experiential learning since 1947 when it was founded by, amongst others, Kurt Lewin who was a seminal theorist who deepened our understanding of groups, experiential learning, action research and learning which is practiced by a wide community of businesses, governments, non-profits, and educational institutions today.

The five-day workshops

We are often asked about the length of the workshops. Appreciative Inquiry is a change in paradigm and not a technique or process that can simply be learnt by reading a book or following instructions. Our many years of experience have shown us that it takes a minimum of four to five days in relatively small groups, for people to feel confident that they walk away with enough knowledge to start practicing. It takes time to understand the underlying theory, get a feel for how to use Appreciative Inquiry, experiment with applications and not least have the time and space to reflect, ask questions and get satisfactory answers.
