30 Years of Research, Training, and Consulting
Learning as Leadership’s program has evolved from 30 years of empirical research, experimentation, facilitation, coaching and consulting. Originally developed by Claire Nuer and Sami Cohen, with subsequent significant contributions by Marc-André Olivier and Noah Nuer, the LaL methodology is aligned with and built upon the work of a number of other pioneers and researchers in related fields.
Influencing Academic Research
Moving into University Classrooms
Considered by many leading academics in business and psychology to be a uniquely transformative leadership program, aspects of LaL’s methodology have been taught at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, Harvard Business School, Darden Business School and the University of Michigan and Ohio State University PhD programs in Psychology.
Evergreen Research Process
The LaL methodology is a constantly evolving body of work driven by a think tank of researchers and practitioners. Drawing from participant insights, corporate consulting, interaction with other researchers and thinkers, as well as a demanding regimen of staff experimentation, the facilitation and design team are constantly sharpening LaL’s core tools and concepts to offer the greatest possibility for change and growth.

These tools aim at preparing my students to lead from their best self, with awareness of their self-limiting behaviors, greater capacity to learn and grow, and a deeper sense of connection to a larger purpose. They will be empowered to go out and make a difference in the lives of those they lead and those who work with them.Susan AshfordProfessor the Michigan Business School and LaL graduate
