The Socratic Arts Difference

Effective learning design.   Utmost professionalism.   Lasting impact.

Proven approach backed by learning and cognitive science.

Not just bright, shiny courses.

Engaging custom-built designs for your people.

Not fast, cheap, easy, and ineffective.

Technology to create meaningful learning experiences.

Not simply to convey information.

Focused on improving performance, changing behaviors, and shifting mindsets.

Not just “telling” learners what they should know.

Instruction just in time when it’s helpful and memorable.

Not instruction in case – when it’s abstract, not yet relevant, hard to remember.

Secret sauce that makes projects run smoothly.

Managing multiple stakeholders and keeping focused on learning priorities.

Even with our most senior leaders, I'm comfortable having Socratic Arts set the agenda and drive the discussion.
