Benefits of Action Learning Foundation Workshops

Key Learning
  • Easy Adoption of the Action Learning Process
    Unlike most other group processes, Action Learning does not require members to be trained. Under the guidance of an Action Learning Coach, the team can be up and running within just minutes of forming.
  • Solve Organizational Issues
    The more urgent and complex the problem at hand, the better suited for Action Learning. Complex problems require the team to see the problem as a whole, rather than in parts which the Action Learning process enables.
  • Immediate Transference of Learning
    Leadership training programs often fail at transferring learning once the learner leaves the classroom and enters the complexity of the real world. Action Learning flows with the dynamism of the open system and the learning is immediately applied to the group, bringing about a change of behavior and thinking process.
  • Instrument for Developing Personal Mastery & Leadership Skills
    Action Learning enables clarity of thought through deep questioning. Members are made aware of their implicit assumptions, beliefs and attitudes which in turn affect organizational decisions and outcomes.
  • Promotes Team Learning
    Action Learning believes that the answers lie within the team members. The coach merely acts as a mirror to the team and facilitates reflection. Diversity of views is encouraged and power is balanced within the team, between leaders and members, bosses and subordinates. The true capability of the team can hence shine.
