Training Approach

"Sometimes the brain needs a kick start... Unusual spaces force [the] brain to process inputs in novel ways, sprouting new connections and making synapses where none existed before."

- Gregory Burns, Iconoclast (Harvard Business Press, 2008)

The programs are experiential and learner-centered. Trained facilitators create a safe environment for probing dialogue around difficult issues rarely discussed in the workplace. Our programs challenge participants to question their own assumptions, raise self-awareness, and present fresh perspectives to redefine personal responsibility and taking action.

Innovative Methodologies

In our professional development programs you will:

  • Experience the Museum of Tolerance as a workshop in human behavior
  • Witness personal testimonies
  • Engage in facilitated discussions around issues that matter to you
  • Participate in customized workshops conducted by expert facilitators and trainers
  • Receive curricular materials developed by the Simon Wiesenthal Center's research department.

Offered in multiple formats, including 5-8 hour sessions or 2- 5 day leadership retreats, each program is tailored to meet the needs of participants.

Powerful Learning Environments:

Unique, interactive exhibits set our programs apart from the traditional consultant with a flip chart.  The immersive learning environment of the Museum of Tolerance enhances and intensifies the learning experiences.

The exhibits are a powerful stimulus to explore crucial themes such as the power of words and images, the pursuit of social justice, and the relationship between diversity and democracy. All programs have dedicated time in the exhibits, which provide a powerful stimulus for individual and group insights.
