When the Experts Need Help, They Turn To Us

Intellectual Ferret

Intellectual Ferret focuses on delivering understanding, not just information.

Intellectual Ferret

is the Dillon Group, Inc., brand that provides our clients with workshops and seminars, online education, instructional design, and corporate university programs. We draw understanding and insights out of our students in leadership development, professional development, workforce development, and personal development.


Socrates saw the process of education as drawing out instead of filling up the mind.

At Intellectual Ferret, we believe learning is a change in the learner’s knowledge that is attributable to experience. Many workforce development programs focus on performance and neglect competence. Most assessment methods focus on measuring performance, and neglect competence. Do you need an employee who performs well when conditions are stable, and everything is certain, simple, and clear or do you need an employee who performs well when conditions are volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous?


Intellectual Ferret Workshops and Seminars
We provide workshops and seminars on leadership development, professional development, workforce development, and personal development.


Intellectual Ferret Online Education
We deliver many of our programs online as individual courses or through our customized corporate university program.


Intellectual Ferret Instructional Design

We use an evidence-based approach to both the science of learning and the science of instruction in our instructional design practice. We create custom content for our clients, whether they are a national trade association or a small business, that meets their specific needs identified through a rigorous assessment process.

The Corporate University Program is for organizations with 8 or more employees who want to stay at the top of their game. You provide us their names and company email addresses, we provide them access to a corporate log-in page we set up just for you.

John Stuart Mill wrote in 1867: "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."
