Who is Learning in Action (LIA)? 

LIA is a small company with a big vision – a world in which people are present and conscious to the choices they are making and the impact they have on themselves and others -  world in which we are both connected with and separate from each other, recognizing that we make up a whole.  We aim to transform people’s understanding of themselves in a way that creates more choice and more possibility for their lives.

LIA is a MD based company, however the company is completely virtual, doing business in all 50 states as well as Canada.   We are tiny, mighty team  - 2 full time staff, one part time staff.  

LIA’s Why?

We catalyze the advancement of leaders by developing and supporting those who catalyze them.

What does that even mean?

We believe that we are all shaped in relationship.   Our past relationships shape our perception of the present and our anticipation of the future.  Under stress (and BTW, we are all almost always under stress of some kind), we tend to react in non-conscious ways based upon patterns developed from past relationships.   And we make choices based upon bad or incomplete information, that don’t get us what we want.   LIAT is dedicated to helping people make their non-conscious patterns, conscious, so that they can become aware of them, and have access to more choice and become the person, leader, partner, parent, that they want to be.


We have designed an instrument that reveals our hidden internal patterns under stress, which have evolved over a lifetime, the result of our life experiences.  We train people (coaches, consultants and experts in leadership development) on the interpretation of the instrument and sell the instrument to professionals who provide it to their clients for personal and professional growth.


In this shockingly revealing time in the US, it has never been more important for us as citizens, as a nation to come together.  We believe we have a part in doing that.
