Focus on Results

We understand the demanding competitive landscape of today’s global business environment. We assist businesses in improving profitability, productivity and organizational effectiveness. Our focus is on measurable, impactful results and on creating a self-sustaining capability for our clients.

Superior Client Service

We understand that businesses are complex, dynamic systems and rely on the principle that every client partnership deserves our expert attention in assessing their specific needs. Once the needs are understood, we collaborate with you to apply the right processes, tools and services to achieve the desired results.

Partnership Based on Trust

At the heart of The Learning Point is exceptional service and professionalism. From these attributes we forge client partnerships that uncover opportunity. The hallmark of The Learning Point is our capability to develop long-term relationships with clients and to be a trusted and valuable business partner.


Understanding Our Client’s Needs

The Learning Point approach begins with an in depth understanding of your organization’s needs. We accomplish this through collaborative sharing of information and ideas in a dynamic process of discovery that concludes with an agreed path addressing your organization’s unique needs. This path will lead us to one or more of our specific practice areas: assessment, consultation, design, or delivery.

Assess & Measure

Measurement is essential to evaluate the return on investment for talent management, organizational effectiveness and learning initiatives. We work with our clients early in the process to determine success factors and the appropriate level of measurement requirements to assess the impact of the process, program or project.


We create value by providing insights for our clients to better align talent with organizational goals and strategies through learning and leadership development. Unlike the practices of many other firms, our consulting methods are coaching-oriented – designed to solve immediate issues as well as develop long-term self-sufficiency.

Design and Develop

With a clear understanding of our client’s strategies, culture, leadership values and capabilities, we design and develop impactful, customized learning and development programs that improve organizational effectiveness. We integrate closely with our clients throughout the design and development process to ensure high quality deliverables, on time and on budget.

We carefully plan project deliverables and manage timelines to ensure our client’s goals are achieved. While the Learning Point approach is deeply grounded in organization research, theory and models, our consultants are practitioners, not academics. We design practical, “real world” solutions with the goal of delivering results and making our clients self-sufficient.


As businesses mature, their needs change. Often organizations are faced with having to quickly acquire new internal capabilities or capacities to increase their effectiveness. The Learning Point can help your organization flex to meet these immediate demands. From simply extending your training delivery capacity to outsourcing a complete solution, we provide a full spectrum of learning program delivery support, including train-the-trainer methods, facilitation and learning project management.
