Learning tools

WYLD experiences are built around a range of topics from leadership and management development to diversity and inclusion, team building, and branding and design.

 
 

 

How we build the best educational experience

  1. We start with our values. These are our foundational building blocks that ensure what you learn sticks for the long-term.

  2. We spend time understanding your unique challenges and goals and build a custom strategy accordingly.

  3. We then collaborate with you to select learning areas and tools that most effectively address your objective.

  4. Finally, we select activities to bring those learning areas to life in a fun and engaging way that work best for you / your team and the event location.

WYLD experiences are completely customized to our clients’ needs and goals

If two companies approached us with a similar challenge — like building a strengths-based team — their sessions would look completely different. Your team’s goals, culture, and daily reality create the alchemy that ultimately guides your unique, WYLD experience.

 
The educational mix we put together varies by client.

Neuroscience & Brain Mapping

A focus area of any WYLD teaching is using the brain as a tool to understand how we respond to our environment. By knowing how our brains are wired and activated we can create new, positive pathways in order to intentionally direct our thinking, especially in moments of stress, pressure, or anxiety.

CliftonStrengths

This is a Gallup behavioral assessment that reveals the primary neurological pathways in our brain tied to our innate talents. Knowing how to name, claim, tame, and aim these strengths leads to improved performance, efficiency, and well-being for individuals and teams alike.

Leadership Development

From Angelise Aaron, Don Clifton, Kim Scott, Jim Collins, Barbara Frederickson, Daniel Pink, and Jose Stevens to the Coaching Training Institute and Harvard Business Review, we blend many philosophies and studies of leadership into our teachings.

Management Development

Much of WYLD’s wisdom is influenced by the 40+ years of Gallup’s research and consulting in workplace performance, leadership, management, talent selection and analytics, employee engagement, well-being, entrepreneurship, and education.

Positive Psychology

Our work applies the research and practice of PERMA: positive emotion, engagement, relationships, meaning and accomplishments. This field is the “scientific study of positive human functioning and flourishing on multiple levels that include the biological, personal, relational, institutional, cultural, and global dimensions of life.”

Ancient Wisdom

Some of the rituals and exercises we embrace are not “new” as this is shared wisdom found in indigenous cultures around the world. We honor the passed down knowledge of our elders and the generations before us who lived in alignment with mother nature.

Storytelling

Communication is the key to our success in any environment. We help you own your unique voice and learn to articulate your strengths, needs, and point of view with intention while adapting to the audience or situation at hand.

The Wisdom of Nature

The cycles of mother nature can teach us everything we need to know about business, leadership, innovation, healing, adaptation, and balance. We adopt the belief that our body and brain are nurtured best in the great outdoors.

Intuitive Horsework

Horses serve as a mirror, providing instant feedback to our body language, non-verbal communication, and energetic impact. They aid us in understanding the tone and atmosphere we create as leaders.

Well-being

Taking a 360-degree lens of what it means to thrive, our teachers blend a mind, body, heart approach to growth. How we eat, sleep, move, think, and socialize filter the way we experience our days. We teach health as an interconnected system and guide the integration of holistic self-care.

Art

Art is learning by doing. It’s experiential, multi-sensorial education at its best. Offering a chance to break out of our “need to know” brains, creative art can spark our imagination, a fresh perspective, and a sense of joy and play.
