Landmark’s programs are grounded in a model of transformative learning rather than informative learning. Informative or additive learning increases what people know, adds to their skills, extends already established capacities by bringing new knowledge to an existing worldview and frames of reference. By comparison, transformative learning (a term introduced by Jack Mezirow*) gives people an awareness of the basic structures in which they know, think, and act in the world. From that awareness comes a fundamental shift that leaves people more fully in accord with their own possibilities and those of others. This shift is the single most powerful attribute of The Landmark Forum and Landmark’s other programs. Participants find themselves able to think and act beyond existing views and limits—in their personal and professional lives, relationships, and wider communities of interest.
Methods for producing outstanding results are familiar to many people; at the same time, people recognize that there are certain realistic limits to what seems possible. Landmark’s methodology provides people with an opportunity to go beyond those limits. It offers a practical technology for producing breakthroughs— achievements that are extraordinary, outside the limits of what’s already predictable, attainable, or known.
Standard educational methods often leave you having to remember the concepts you were taught or trying to figure out how to apply them. Landmark's method leaves you applying what you learned naturally and without effort. Similar to what happens when you first ride a bicycle, in Landmark's programs you learn by direct personal discovery—a moment occurs when a new ability is yours. You become confident in what you've learned, and the new ability is yours forever.
