About The Andrick Group
The Andrick Group is committed to delivering the kinds of high-quality, engaging, collaborative professional development opportunities that build the capacity for effective teaching and learning. All successful organizations strive for continual improvement. When processes or functions are ineffective, it’s standard practice to look for ways to improve them. But, one of most significant differentiators between highly effective organizations and all the others is their focus on improving the way they learn.
In the classroom or in the boardroom, learning is not a fixed trait – it is a skill that requires practice. When we understand how the brain works and how we can effectively nurture cognition and creativity, we can improve problem-solving, collaboration and innovation. The primary goal of the Andrick Group is to engage, inform, and inspire organizations to foster a “learning to learn” culture that perpetuates continuous improvement at all levels.
Additionally, they know that one size does not fit all; every community has unique challenges and needs. They take pride in their ability to provide tailored learning experiences by having a conversation, listening to your needs, and creating a customized workshop to meet those needs. They bring the best professional development learning experiences to you, within your budget, on your schedule. The Andrick Group offers flexible options in 2-hour, 4-hour, and 6-hour sessions for both large and small groups of participants.
