Lasting results that expand and unfold over time

Why Landmark

A fundamental principle of Landmark’s work is that people and the communities, organizations, and institutions with which they are engaged have the possibility not only of success, but also of fulfillment and greatness. It is to this possibility that Landmark and its work are committed. Landmark’s programs are designed to bring about breakthroughs—not mere insights or improvements, but lasting results that expand and unfold over time.

Transformative Learning

Landmark’s Breakthrough Technology

Landmark’s programs are grounded in a model of transformative learning. Informative learning adds to people’s skills by bringing new knowledge; transformative learning gives people an awareness of the basic structures in which they know, think, and act. 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 Landmark’s breakthrough methodology. 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.

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 methodology 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.

The Landmark Forum, Landmark’s flagship program, is designed to bring about such a fundamental shift in what’s possible in people's lives. This transformation is not a one-time event, but an ongoing access to living an extraordinary life.
