Emergent Team – Our collective philosophy

We believe the Learning and Development industry is at a unique moment in time where the opportunity is higher than ever to make the radical shift required to become more business-critical.

We have joined forces to support this shift across the industry.

This shift requires L&D to focus on outcomes and creating business value, while also making a tangible difference to the betterment of people.  We view learning as an organisational wide activity founded on a  symbiotic relationship between the organisation, individuals, and their managers.

We encourage L&D to develop and adopt…

  • Open minded behaviors

  • A curious mindset

  • Evidence-informed decisions and actions

  • Independent thinking and pragmatic approaches 

to build their impact, relevance, and credibility.

We will meet practitioners wherever they are in order to inspire, inform and support them to take action to move forward.
