Deliberate Practice:
Research Based Approach
That Effectively
Develops Talent

At LeadvantEDGE we aim to close the gap between knowing and doing, by applying the science of behavioral change. We address the “forgetting curve” and support deep learning though rigorous skill practice, real-time feedback, collaborative learning and coaching over time. Our evidence-based strategies build capabilities, rather than merely transferring knowledge or raising awareness. Why is this important? Research reveals deliberate practice creates lasting change in individuals and their organizations.  Based on this foundation of deliberate practice, we tailor each program to an organization’s specific needs, delivering personalized learning solutions for individual and collective transformation.
