Paradigm Learning Uses Discovery Learning as the Perfect Ingredient in Corporate Training

Business Acumen Training Fuels Company's Growth

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - October 9, 2007) - Join us and hear Raymond Green and Catherine Rezak chronicle the life of Paradigm Learning, the need for increased business acumen and the growth of discovery learning as a powerful corporate training tool -- all over a pitcher of Sangria.

The podcast, "Sangria, Advertising and Business Acumen Training: The Common Thread," talks very frankly about the origin and evolution of Paradigm Learning and its flagship product, Zodiak®: The Game of Business Finance and Strategy. Paradigm, founded in 1994, developed a custom business-acumen training program for a major manufacturing company and quickly turned it into a "wildly popular" classroom board game that is currently played by over half the Fortune 500 companies, has been translated into seven languages and is being played in more than 13 countries.

Green illustrates how Zodiak has evolved over the years to encompass many other industries' financial literacy needs, such as with the development of Zodiak for Service Organizations, Zodiak for Sales Professionals and Zodiak for EVA. He also adds his thoughts on where Zodiak is today and how it has evolved and grown over the last 12 years.

Rezak ends the podcast with a discussion on the importance of infusing popular advertising techniques into corporate training. She also goes on to talk about discovery learning benefits and how this specialized methodology increases learning retention and employee engagement. She discusses Paradigm's other discovery learning programs and how they are able to educate participants in project team development, leadership accountability, organizational change, team building and talent leadership.
