Action Learning - LIVE Coaching Demo

Action Learning is an experiential learning approach that provides the framework and methodologies to advance leadership skills while solving complex business challenges. This is done in conjunction with others, in small groups. It is particularly suitable for workplace and leadership learning, as it enables each person to reflect on and review the action they have taken and the learning points arising. This can then guide future action and improve performance.

 

Action Learning is an experiential learning approach that provides the framework and methodologies to advance leadership skills while solving complex business challenges. This is done in conjunction with others, in small groups. It is particularly suitable for workplace and leadership learning, as it enables each person to reflect on and review the action they have taken and the learning points arising. This can then guide future action and improve performance.

 

A process of insightful questioning and reflective listening, Action Learning is effective at solving challenges of all sizes, but it works particularly well with complex problems that may appear unsolvable. With its focus on questions and the presence of a trained Action Learning coach, this method elevates the norms, the collaboration, the creativity and the courage of groups to solve problems of great urgency.


Besides problem solving, Action Learning simultaneously develops leaders thanks to its simple rules, which force participants to think critically and work collaboratively. As a leader, the Action Learning coach assists group members in reflecting, not on their problem solving, but on the elevation of their group functioning. Action Learning participants become effective leaders as they solve difficult problems.


In this webinar, Shannon Banks will use the World Institute for Action Learning (WIAL) approach to demonstrate:    

  • How action learning can be used to simultaneously solve real business problems while developing leaders;
  • How the six components of action learning come together to increase the effectiveness of action learning;
  • The role of the action learning coach in accelerating the performance of the group.

Preparation & Resources

No preparation is required. Shannon will ask four members of the audience to volunteer to participate in the session as action learning team members. 

A great number of resources can be found on the World Institute for Action Learning (WIAL) library webpage.
