Browne Center


The Browne Center’s High Performance Institutes are designed to support your learning and development needs and enhance the fundamental skills necessary to lead, manage and supervise people effectively. Our approach is a blended learning model that includes: content and theory presentations, experiential learning labs and exercises, assessments and tools, small group work, process improvement projects, coaching and feedback sessions.

We believe that this blended approach provides an optimal learning environment that supports the development of individuals in a diverse workforce. Material is presented through a series of action-based learning activities, helping participants to more deeply assimilate the knowledge gained.

Facilitators provide debriefing sessions and coaching throughout the program, providing additional opportunities to relate learning experiences to the actual work environment.


  • Pre-assessment work and materials
  • Multi-day facilitated training delivery
  • Follow-up sessions utilizing a repeat 360 feedback tool
  • Coaching sessions at 3, 6, 9 month intervals
