Facilitating Action Learning Sets

Action Learning is about:

A consistent group of people coming together on a regular basis, with the purpose of learning from and with each other.

Each member of the group brings an issue/problem which they present to the group. These members then help the person to explore the issue, through questioning, listening, challenge and support. The intention is to help the person identify options to follow to deal with the problem faced.

Action Learning leads to:

  • Learning about a problem being tackled
  • Learning about yourself
  • Learning about the process of learning

and taking planned actions

The benefits of action learning are:

  • Working on live issues
  • Raised self-awareness through feedback from the set
  • Learning how to learn for yourself
  • Time to think and reflect in a safe environment
  • Action planning and follow-up with the set

Our approach is: to establish the sense of group with sound, owned ground rules; facilitate the learning process, which supports the operation of the set; and undertake a review on an individual and group level.

We can apply a number of tools to support the learning process e.g. the Myers Briggs Type Indicator, influencing strategies, creative problem solving etc.
