The Learning Organisation is a quality driven, customer-centric knowledge centre dedicated to Growing People, Building Talent and Creating Leaders.

Growing People

TLO believes in growing people from where they are, to where they want to be. We believe in growing people outside of their habits and comfort zone. We offer qualifications, skills programmes, computer skills, customised development programmes and coaching for all levels of staff, including Executive Coaching and Management Development programmes.

We also grow organisations from where they are to where they want to be. Our service includes Skills Development initiatives in line with the overall organisational strategy, the B-BBEE strategy and sector-specific requirements. This includes training aligned with Workplace Skills Plans or even Enterprise & Supplier Development plans.

Growing People increases employability for the individual, a more competent workforce and by extension creates a better future for all.

Building Talent

As a growing business, we understand the challenges around hiring the right talent, migrating our hired talent to loyal staff members, and developing them further through succession planning. In today’s fast-paced environment, dynamic and growing organisations continuously up-skill, cross-skill and re-invent themselves to stay ahead of the pack.

Building Talent is essential as it creates employment opportunity for others. TLO’s products and value offerings are unique, customizable and able to be scaled upwards and downwards. Our passion and ‘can-do’ attitude seeks to understand our clients’ needs and outcomes first, before recommending the most appropriate solution.

Creating Leaders

Central to the value we create is the creation of strong Leaders. Principle-centered Leaders. Leadership is more than a title; it is rather a set of values, beliefs and behaviours that give direction to one’s leadership style, aligned with the organisation’s values.

TLO assists organisations in creating leaders with a strong sense of self, high emotional intelligence, integrity, solid values and empowering beliefs. Leaders with knowledge, wisdom and insight who are able to lead and inspire others and so continue the empowering cycle of growing people, building talent and creating more leaders!

We achieve this through:

  • Local understanding with global insight
  • Thought Partnership – we bring to the table an integrated, client-centric solution by blending state-of-the-art concepts and industry experts that fit your culture, challenges and requirements


  • Integrity
  • Customer Centricity
  • Systems Thinking
  • Empowering Teamwork
  • Creativity

Our Methodology is based on the principles of ‘A Learning Organisation’ (a term first coined by Peter Senge) and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) which is the 20% value-add to our clients that lead to 80% of the results achieved.

The Learning Organisation facilitates learning and development for change in Africa by continuously transforming others through enhancing skills and knowledge.

Shared Vision
At TLO we share a vision of sustainable upliftment and empowerment for ALL by growing people, building talent and creating leaders. Our shared vision gives us energy, focus, drive and commitment.

Innovative & Creative thinking
At TLO we examine the linkages and interactions between our various service offerings that make up the entirety of the system. We observe the functions and interactions amongst our facilitators, learners, administrators, clients, digital content and learning goals.

Personal Mastery
At TLO we value the journey towards continuous improvement and viewing life from a different angle. We are guided by principles of purpose, vision, belief, commitment, integrity, creative and innovative thinking, customer-centricity and self-knowledge.

Empowering Teamwork
At TLO we build systems, processes, relationships and infrastructure that enables our team, individually and collectively, to achieve high levels of sustainable performance.

Mental models
We adhere to the principles of Neuro-Linguistic-Programming (NLP). ‘Neuro’ refers to neurology (how the mind works), ‘Linguistics’ refers to the use of language and ‘Programming’ refers to the internal programmes that run between the mind, what we say and how we behave. NLP deals with influence: how people relate and communicate to others, how they make decisions and how they prefer to be influenced. In essence, it is a pragmatic school of thought that is specifically valuable when we sell to clients, service our customers, present to others and negotiating ‘win-win’ situations.

People experience the world through their five senses and their internal dialogue, i.e. their thoughts. We interpret and give meaning to these external experiences based on what is inside our minds, for example, what we value, our beliefs, our attitudes, our past experiences, etc. Combined, these filters are externally displayed by our behaviours (actions) and our results (performance). So if we are not happy with the results we achieve in our lives, personally and professionally, we need to DO something differently and these mental models, or maps of our world, are explored throughout our course offerings.
