Action Learning – Question Time

If you’ve ever wondered what action learning is, how it can help, and more importantly, if it is right for your organisation, here’s something that might be of interest.

We’re hosting a live webinar on 11th July which will, for the main part, be a question and answer session with our Director, Sonja Antell. Following a short introduction to action learning, you’ll be able to ask questions via the chat facility, and Sonja will answer as many as she can in the time we have available.

For example, we are often asked by commissioners ‘What are the pitfalls of action learning?’ – a very good question, and one that we also answer in our article here.

The webinar starts at 11am on 11th July and will last for 45 minutes. It’s free to attend and you can join us by registering here.

In the meantime, if you’d like to forward a question before the webinar so that we may include it during the start of the Q&A session, please feel free to do so by emailing Sonja.antell@actionlearningassociates.co.uk

Resilience in the workplace – an undervalued asset?

Work isn’t all about money – a key motivational factor is feeling valued as an employee.

In these uncertain and changing times, the workplace environment is becoming ever more demanding. The organisations that will thrive are the ones that can support, engage and retain their staff. Without it, they risk plummeting productivity and losing top talent.

In this interactive webinar, our guest presenter Dr Jeremy Cross details:

  • why there is an urgent need to focus on employee resilience and well-being
  • practical strategies you can put in place to boost resilience and well-being in your organisation
  • case study examples (from the finance sector, professional services, NHS, and local government) showing how Action Learning is a highly effective intervention

Dr Jeremy Cross is an independent leadership consultant with over 15 years experience delivering accredited training for leading commercial and public sector organisations such as Nike, LEGO and the NHS. This is an informative webinar, packed with useful insights and strategies for immediate implementation.

 

What’s in a voice? The art of listening

You may be aware that we often conduct action learning sets virtually, bringing set members together from different locations. The demand for this service is on the increase, as budgets are squeezed and the cost of travel prohibits face to face meetings. During this webinar, John Heywood shares some of his research into virtual action learning, as well as some key message for successful virtual action learning.

Live action learning webinar

If you’ve ever wondered what it might be like to experience an action learning set, this webinar reveals all. We present a real life issue and open the chat function to take questions from our webinar participants. We explain how large organisations like the Body Shop, Heineken, Charitable Foundations and the Arts have used action learning to achieve diverse objectives and how you can apply action learning to great effect in your own organisation.

The secrets of action learning – what makes it so powerful?

We’re often asked what distinguishes action learning from other forms of professional development training, and what makes it so effective. Our first webinar lifts the lid on those secrets of success and how action learning can be a catalyst for enhanced organisational performance. We also explain the theory behind the practice, include examples of how this works in organisations, and a short taster session in which the webinar participants were able to experience action learning real time.
