Highly Experiential Training and Development for Growth-Minded Leaders

The best version of you seldom emerges when tied to a chair in a classroom.

Join Us at the Next Event

We believe in human-centered learning to drive lasting change. As such we develop experiential platforms for high-performing managers and leaders to experience maximum originality and sustainability in their personal and professional growth journey.

The Nour Group Learning Expeditions begins with a design process to really understand our client’s desired outcomes and the profile/expectations of the participants. From there, we develop and deliver highly experiential programs, combined with a new skill to navigate natural surroundings.

Imagine your team of professionals learning to fly fish stunning private waters, raft challenging rivers, backpack beautiful mountains, while embracing evolutionary leadership skills, knowledge, and behaviors.

Imagine your team at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), SxSW, or several other innovative events, where they’re asked to explore, inquire, experiment and return to share their experiences.

How dramatically different would their takeaways be vs. stuck in a hotel room or a training facility for days at a time.

Imagine training and development orchestrated like theater with Before-During-After phases, designed to transform individuals, teams, and organizations to rethink, reimagine, if not reinvent key parts of their business.

From learning sprints and expeditions, we get learners out – of their office, their environment, their comfort zone. In our experience no real learning or growth comes from a place of comfort.

And the key to organizational transformation and personal reinvention are experiences and exchanges, reflection, and applications.

This is non-linear growth and what drives us to educate high performing, high potential managers and leaders.

Let’s Talk about how our team can create a highly experiential learning and development journey for your organization

Every experience is unique and customized to your aspirations:

  • Adventure outings - think a Formula racing crew, an outdoor trek over the weekend
  • Relax experiences - immerse the team in digital detox so they can critically think and behave differently
  • Urban settings - where they’ll engage in spy games or innovation challenges

Reinforce Your Unique Selling Proposition

Management and Leadership Training Can't Be An Event!

We’ve never seen miracles emerge from training events. At best, most introduce an idea. And the participants return to their respective roles, and mounting workloads to get caught up. And revert to all that they were doing before the training event. The binders go on a shelf, the worksheets in folders, and the key ideas to learn, grow, and evolve, are all but forgotten.

That’s why at The Nour Group, we believe there is a better way. Welcome to Learning Expeditions – a highly immersive and experiential learning journey from now to next.
