Create a Learning Journey for Leaders
What Is a Learning Journey?
A learning journey is a strategic approach to developing groups of leaders over time. It’s based on the principle that true behavior change takes time, and that people learn best together – as long as they can personalize their experience.
At DDI, we create learning journeys to maximize the time and effectiveness of leadership development. Learning journeys offer the right blend of personalized learning with group connection. For example, leaders can take assessments, pursue online learning, and coaching to boost their knowledge and insight. But they cement learning when they come together in virtual or in-person classroom session.
Ready to get started? We offer proven, competency-based learning journeys you can implement right away. Or we can work with you to create a completely custom learning journey, just for you. Either way, we’re ready to start walking by your side as your leaders begin their transformation.

You’re providing a really robust environment for frontline leaders to assess who they are, what they have to do in this new role, and how they need to grow.

Want to Take Things Virtual?
At DDI, we’re big believers in the power of learning together. But that doesn't mean it has to be in-person.
As many companies have shifted to a virtual workplace, we’ve taken leadership development with it. We offer learning journeys that take place entirely in the virtual world.
But that doesn’t mean you miss out on human connection. Our virtual classroom format creates the same bond leaders get in the classroom – just without handshakes.
Don’t Forget Microlearning
The key to creating successful learning journeys is to sustain learning in between classroom sessions. And that’s where microlearning comes in.
Microlearning offers quick learning experiences that help leaders practice and deepen their skills between larger learning sessions. It can be things like short courses, videos, self-assessments, online tools, or other quick formats.
In just a few minutes, microlearning offers a quick boost to keep your leaders engaged.
