Intellectual Ferret by The Dillon Group, Inc. helps you improve your construction expertise and professional development with reduced time and effort.

“The only skill that will be important in the 21st century is the skill of learning new skills. Everything else will become obsolete over time.”

Peter Drucker

Whether you are interested in becoming better at building codes, construction best practices, or sustainability, we can help you.

We leverage decades of practical experience in construction and teaching through evidence-based practices to help you quickly develop your expertise when it is convenient for you.

We know that you already have some level of expertise— our job is draw understanding and insights out of you, to bring you to a deeper awareness, to help you become more expert at what you do.

Do you need to perform well when conditions are stable and everything is certain, simple, and clear or do you need to perform well when conditions are volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous?

“Don’t let your learning lead to knowledge; let your learning lead to action.”

John C. Maxwell

We know there is a huge difference between knowing about things and knowing how to do things. We also know that you are a doer, a person who actually does the work. To become better at what you do, you need to put what you “know” into practice.

We don’t just teach you how to do what you do, we teach you how to think differently, intensively, and critically about what you do.

“Education makes a man a more intelligent shoemaker, but not by teaching him how to make shoes: it does so by the mental exercise it gives.”

John Stuart Mill

You have probably been bored to tears with training programs in the past. We get that— we’ve suffered death by PowerPoint so many times in the past, sometimes we felt like the walking dead!

Intellectual Ferret is not like that. We educate while being entertaining, we use stories and and real world experiences to bring our content to your reality, and we leverage our expertise at what we know how to do to help you.

But don’t take our word for it!
