Healing The Divide in Times of Uncertainty

Situations like the one we are now living through are why the acronym VUCA was created.  No doubt, we are living in Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous times.  And when the VUCA hits the fan, we at Learning in Action want to be in it with you, supporting you through it.

Heal The Divide Mission

Learning in Action is committed to healing the divide within and between people. Healing the divide within and between is the work that connects the world.  Healing our dividedness from our essence will heal the dividedness between us. We dream of a world in which when one of us hurts, we all feel it.  And we run to the aid of the other just as we would to our own.  We envision a world in which there is a realization that we are separate and connected and ONE. 

Heal The Divide Podinar Series

Podinar is a cross between a podcast and a webinar. It’s conversational like a podcast and a live interactive experience like a webinar.

Learning In Action's FREE monthly Heal The Divide Podinar series informs, educates, and inspires us all to go out in the world and heal the ways we are divided from our essence and divided from each other.

The intention is to inspire, inform and support our community of coaches, OD/HR consultants and leadership professionals, and to facilitate connecting people to themselves and each other.
We do that by spotlighting thought leaders and catalysts with generative ideas and messages. Learn more and join us live!

The EQ Profile Experience

Leverage the impact of your coaching by going deeper faster with the only EQ assessment that doesn't rely on self-reporting.

The EQ Profile is the only simulation-based emotional and relational intelligence instrument that tracks and captures our internal experience under stress, revealing what we can’t see about ourselves and how our reactions influence how we relate to others.

  • It's about relationships
  • The only non-self-reporting EQ Instrument
  • It's about creating more choice
