Action Learning solves problems and develops leaders simultaneously because its simple rules force participants to think critically and work collaboratively. Action Learning is particularly effective for solving complex problems that may appear unsolvable. It elevates the norms, the collaboration, the creativity, and the courage of groups that solve problems of great urgency to the organisation.
The Action Learning Coach assists the team members in reflecting not only only their problem but also on the elevation of their group functioning as well as focusing on examples of their leadership skills. In this way, Action Learning participants become effective leaders as they solve difficult problems.
Action Learning positions inquiry at the core of organisational behaviour, develops critical thinking and creates mutual respect among employees at all levels. The focus on inquiry elevates the group interaction to a true learning environment.
Power of Action Learning
Not only can action learning create constant learning opportunities for people and teams, but also improve the culture and morale for learning in organisations.
