Who Buys Our Products and Services?
Over the years, we've had many customers from a variety of organizations buy our products and services. These customers fall into three categories:
- People who've experienced what we offer
- People who've heard about our work from one of our customers
- People who want to improve performance and/or who're curious about what we offer
Why Try Us Out?
If you've had an experience with us in some way, you're probably already convinced that we deliver on our promises. But if you haven't experienced our work, you may not know what you're missing. You might think you already know what we're like because of your experience with other consultants. So, when you consider us, you may be judging us based on your previous experience, instead of on what makes us unique from most consultants in the field of thinking and learning. If this is the case, we think you might be making a hasty judgement. That's why we designed a way for you to try us out. It's not the same as working with us in person — it's only a taste! But we're hoping that it's enough of an experience for you to make an informed decision about working with MHA Institute.
Experience Our Work!
Warning! Warning! To get the most out of this experience, you'll need to complete the activity. This means that you have to do what the instructions tell you to do. That's how it works. If you only read about the activity, without doing it, you won't truly understand what it means. Learning happens only when you have an experience — you can't learn without action.
"Learning occurs when we take effective action, when we detect and correct error. How do you know when you know something? When you can produce what it is you claim you know."
Chris Argyris, Knowledge for Action, 1993
Before You Begin . . .
What comes to your mind when you think about the word learning? For most people, the word learning means school, discipline, restrictions, rules, structure, feelings of panic, stress, competition, boredom, and tests. But this isn't what learning is about. This is what school is about. Learning and school are not the same thing. However, most people equate learning with their experiences in school, rather than with a process. Perhaps you do, too. That's why we've designed this activity to help you to define learning as a process of action and reflection.
