Archie’s Four Areas of Expertise

Our deepest and most sustained learning comes from the experience of doing; doing things well and not so well. The trick is to be awake in that experience, to reflect on the experience and finally to learn from the experience. I partner with the most talented experiential facilitators in the business to create, design and deliver powerful indoor and outdoor experiential learning events. These events directly relate to the issues and challenges that we all face in both our personal and professional lives.

Indoor Experiential Learning: Looks for the “teachable moment”. It replicates our life and work environment. It is used as a foundation for self reflection and honest discussion that is supported by curriculum and philosophy that teaches invaluable life skills.

River of Life: Tells the story of our journey as an individual, a team or an organization. It is a real time, interactive event that reflects on lessons from the past, learnings from the present and dreams of the future.

United States Space and Rocket Center: Utilizes space and flight simulators to practice vital work-place skill sets, such as communication, crisis management, change management, situational leadership, resilience and decision making.

Outdoor Experiential Learning: Takes individuals and teams out of their zone of comfort, asking them to break through their perceived limitations by challenging their ingrained thinking and behaviors.

“Tell me and I will forget. Show me and I may remember. Involve me and I will understand.”- Confucius

My Philosophy

Self-awareness is at the very heart of my philosophy. It all begins there, with each individual coming to the realization that every thought, every act and every choice they make has seen and unseen consequences.

However, we often make choices in our lives that are not in our best interests. These choices can be driven by self-doubt, uncertainty, fear and misunderstanding and are often fueled by our ingrained beliefs and learned behaviors.

Challenging the thinking and behaviors that can impede our full un-realized potential is the key to individual and organizational performance.

Individual change and growth must precede organizational change and growth. That means individual change and growth at every level, from executive leaders to the shop floor.

A Call to Leadership:

If you are asking me, as an associate in your company, to commit to your vision, to work hard and long to achieve your goals; if you want me to be creative and innovative, loyal and committed; if you want me to wake up every morning wanting to come to work – then offer me more, much more, than just a pay check. Offer me learning, growth, challenge, support, trust and authenticity. Create an environment where I can express myself rather than have to prove myself – then I can reach my full potential.

In over 25 years of doing this work this is the call I hear, and for over 25 years I have been helping people from all walks of life, in all parts of the world, discover that elusive potential.
