About Us

Our Ethos

What does it take to be an outstanding leader in today´s business world?

Theoretically, anybody can answer that question with a list of positive reflecting adjectives. But here at Hands On, we are not concerned with theory as our name suggests.

We are advocates of adult development and learning through experience, which brings us to the the crux of our firm, two relevant words that constantly inspire our team- ‘Experiential Learning’. This is an inclusive methodology where we believe that learning is a result of three primary modes of functioning: Heart (feeling), Head (thinking) and Hands (experiencing). This interrelated system allows for what we call ‘immersive teamplay’ at Hands On.

We understand your corporate needs and seek to provide a holistic training experience both at a team level and individual leadership level. Driven by the idea of ‘adults at play’, our aim is to engage the body, mind and soul and help develop you and your team into a dynamic cohesive unit.

With their diverse skill set and endless passion, the Hands On team is here to design programs that cater especially to your requirements, keeping in mind the cycle of integrative learning, a spirit of professionalism and most importantly, a knack for fun.
