The Fifth Principle uses the SMART Learning for Business Success methodology, a practical applied mentoring and implementation program built to support cooperatives learning endeavors. The SMART Learning for Business Success method is the best way to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed today and in the future to ensure that cooperatives remain a vital resource for economic development.
Over time, employers have found that the primary attributes missing in their employees are:
We call these the Ambition Quotient (AQ) attributes. As the economy evolves, it will be even more imperative that organizations of all sizes and structures have employees with these attributes. These five attributes are not built overnight. They cannot effectively be taught in classrooms or through online learning modules alone. They must be honed through the work people do every day. They need to be taught within the context of work. SMART Learning for Business Success, our project-based learning program, provides employees the opportunity to shape our cooperatives and thrive in turbulent waters. More than ever, we will need people who can think out of the box, solve complex problems, and demonstrate resilience in the face of significant challenges. We delve into a root cause analysis with the sole intent of creating positive solutions that move us forward. We NEED ambitious people who demonstrate the Ambition Quotient (AQ)
The SMART Learning for
Business Success Program
When working with cooperatives, we have found that they are all in need of a boost in Education, Mentoring, and Vision. Our SMART Learning for Business Success program has been structured to remove the overwhelm by providing you with access to a TEAM of experts that will guide you in implementing our proven method that will allow you to focus your TIME on only the most important (and meaningful) areas of your vision. In the SMART Learning for Business Success program, we will build a repeatable, predictable, and measurable social networking and educational model that has a proven return on its value with:
Our educational model will enable cooperative members to demonstrate cooperative values and Ambition Quotient (AQ) attributes. We review what cooperatives were and what they are now. From there we work to ensure your cooperative has what they need to thrive.
We connect visionary cooperative groups with existing expert cooperatives to grow the influence of your cooperative in your community.
We help you define your vision and provide you with a TEAM to implement it.
Are You a Co-Opper?
At the Fifth Principle Learning Cooperative we are dedicated to bringing order to your corner of a chaos filled world. To do this:

How Do I Become a Fifth Principle
Our social learning and networking platform provides a way to expand the reach of your cooperative in your community. We have three options within our Fifth Principle program that will enable your organization to find success.
Do It Yourself
We provide you with a series of self-study learning exercises accessible online. You can complete the exercises at your own pace to learn how to expand your cooperative's reach and nurture ambitious employees. You will retain lifetime unlimited access to these exercises and modules with all three options.
Guidance and Assistance
In addition to the exercises in our academy, this option provides you with an advisor and mentor to support your success. Your advisor goes through the process with you and we connect you to experts and resources in the area where you want to expand your reach. This reduces your learning curve and provides you with resources that enable success.
If you do not have the resources to implement your vision or are not sure where to start, this Partner option gives you the team and resources you need to expand your reach while still instilling cooperative values and Ambition Quotient (AQ) skills in your workforce. Our team takes your vision and implements it for you.
We will help you clearly define your vision and learning goals, provide you with a proven framework for achieving those goals, and provide guidance and keep you accountable to reach those goals.
We will help you get laser-focused on the vision you have for your cooperative and how to market it and educate key stakeholders to achieve success.
We will mentor and guide you only telling you what you need to know so you don't waste your time on activities, software, and other things that won't provide a clear return on your investment.
Why go to it alone?
The very concept of a cooperative is people helping people solve problems and succeed! Join our team to engage with seasoned experts, a library of resources and learning to begin the cooperative journey or expand the reach of your existing cooperative. Once your cooperative has a foundation of experts and resources, the journey has only just begun. Now, sustaining the vision, promoting cooperative values, developing Ambition Quotient (AQ) skills are the next steps your Fifth Principle Cooperative needs to embrace with the SMART Learning for Business Success learning methodology.

Seton Home School
Going through your significantly helped our staff consider the many aspects of learning involved and focus on the needs of the students. We give our students the best online learning experience we can, and your course was an important step in meeting that goal.
As manager of Talent Solutions at SweetRush, my job consists of finding and supplying experienced L&D professionals (mostly Instructional Designers) for our clients. This course was key for me in order to understand what IDs do, how they think, and what makes a great ID. This has contributed over the years in my ability to assess accurately whether candidates would be able to perform and excel at a given position successfully.
