Developing organisations and their people


A short introduction to Action Learning

Action Learning is a simple but powerful approach to personal and professional development, conducted through Action Learning Sets: a group of 6 or 8 people working at comparable levels of responsibility, meeting regularly for a contracted number of meetings.

Action Learning offers:

  1. Support and challenge from peers

  2. The opportunity to learn from others' good practice and develop new ideas and different 'solutions'

  3. Practice and receipt of feedback from peers on their leadership and management skills

  4. Problem solving time for personal learning and development & insight into how others achieve different solutions

  5. Double loop learning, where the individual goes beyond a single loop of identifying a problem and resolving it to the double loop where they challenge the assumptions underlying their practice

I can help by facilitating Action Learning Sets and supporting you in using Action Learning as a powerful tool to develop your organisation and people.
