Story of Innovation
Learning industry leaders Catherine Rezak and Raymond Green founded Paradigm Learning with the objective of changing the world of corporate education and employee communication. Impatient with the boredom factor and low impact of traditional approaches, they started with a few fundamental questions:
- What if we could develop educational experiences that grab attention and energize learners?
- What if learners could learn more quickly, with higher levels of retention?
- What if learners could more easily translate their learning experiences to on-the-job behavior that delivered greater results for their organizations?
They created Paradigm Learning to address these breakthrough questions. Using a unique blend of discovery learning techniques, including board games, simulations, maps, visuals, small team activities and more, they launched into the marketplace with new, refreshing and powerful programs that quickly captured a large audience of corporate fans. Years later, their story of innovation continues.
