Bridging Education and Industry

Our Mission

To build a bridge between education and industry by assisting educators with the development and provision of problem-solving skills training for life-long learners.

Our Purpose

We provide Humble Inquiry training in a storytelling mode to assist the life-long learners (K-12, post secondary and employees) to improve their critical thinking and problem-solving skills to better prepare for and benefit from future school work, post secondary education and to select and succeed in their job or enhance an existing job in their selected career. And, Business can benefit from education protocols.

We do not compete with, but actually complement secondary or post-secondary education, peer-to-peer groups or national conference/DVD training organizations.
