As the pioneering enterprise knowledge brokerage, nanoKnowledge® has helped many businesses and organisations develop the strategies, confidence and innovations to grow, diversify, and realise their potential. We understand why some organisations are concerned with getting better results by doing things differently, and other organisations are interested in getting quicker results by doing more of the same thing. While we are results-oriented, we care about social responsibility as well as how innovative practices or processes are driving those results.

In training and education, an innovative practice currently takes into consideration how different teaching approaches impact learners differently. But the end product of teaching is not necessarily the learning of innovation because if you only use the tried-and-tested way of doing things, you risk disregarding how learners are able to respond when immersed in the processes of innovation. As the philosopher Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) observed, education often "makes a straight-cut ditch of a free, meandering brook". Thoreau meant that the ends of learning does not always justify the means of imparting knowledge.  This is why nanoKnowledge® invests in innovation pathways that redefine the creative thinking spaces and everyday applications of learning and leadership. We believe that innovation is learning from experience, not about using technology. It is a pioneering spirit that plays a key role in transforming a learner into a leader, especially in today's fast-evolving and global environments.  And this is why we created nanoKnowledge® Pathways to Excellence™ -- to faciliate change and sustain the Innovation Mindset. 

nanoKnowledge® Pioneering Leadership™

The outcomes of a nanoKnowledge® Pathway to Excellence™ are the personal transformations of participants, who are inspired to emerge from their comfort zones – to stretch their talents and innovative abilities – and celebrate their place in the world.  Each nanoKnowledge® Pathway contains a carefully crafted set of team building and leadership development modules.  The modules are combined to create an extraordinary program and winning formula for you or your students.  


Every lesson plan in a nanoKnowledge® Pathway to Excellence™ is unique and customisable. Every lesson is practical and created using a combination of the 6 nanoKnowledge® Dimensions of Pioneering Leadership™.  The 6 dimensions of nanoKnowledge® Pioneering Leadership™ provide a measure of the quality of leaders inspired to embark on a nanoKnowledge® Pathway to Excellence™.   Each dimension is an experience of breaking uncharted territory and showing others how to follow your lead -- this is what distinguishes our nanoKnowledge® brand of Pioneering Leadership™. and Pathways to Excellence™. 

The 6 dimensions of nanoKnowledge® Pioneering Leadership™ are: 

  1. Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better
  2. Be patient and wait for it
  3. Do the little things right
  4. Create your path "al andar" (Spanish for "when walking" or "by walking")
  5. Think of failure as your innovation 
  6. Show your first followers how to follow
