Feedback from our customers who participated in In house sets
In-house sets take place within organisations, bringing colleagues together to explore, question and resolve problems in the workplace.
Sets are often incorporated into leadership development, organisational change, culture change programmes and mergers.
I hope it has empowered my team to come to their own answers and to allow them to communicate them out to the wider business.
Gavin Thomas Technical Print & Performance Manager The Body Shop
This process really helps you think about approaching issues from different angles – to allow you to see the bigger picture and how you can best break it down. I spend a lot of time problem solving – this has certainly given me more confidence and greater scope when approaching an issue – looking at different aspects – asking different questions.
Surveillance Manager The Body Shop
Realising the importance of creating time and space for reflection on important issues and the power of listening and mental support for others.
Ronald Jans Chief of Section World Trade Organization
I started the process with, I will admit, a little scepticism and a naive approach to the benefits of coaching and mutual learning but with a keeness to develop that. Through the action learning sessions I have been encouraged by both my own attitude and to sharing in a safe environment. The clearest benefit for me has been to make suggestions rather than define solutions.
Head of Customer Service Alzheimer's Society
The action learning set was enjoyable, nurturing and left much to ponder upon. I listened a lot and it gave me time out from having to come up with the answers. I found it reassuring because I have been around a long time and it allowed me to be involved in something that involved peeling back the layers and reminding ourselves that these are issues that we all wrestle with on a daily basis.
Olive Arens Manager Up-2-Us
The ACF sponsored set for leaders has proved incredibly valuable just to have a confidential space for trust, reflection and questions. I thought I’d be bringing small, day to day issues but actually it’s been a space to think about bigger picture issues about my role, my sector and management issues. I also gained an insight into how other organisations work and how others approach problematic issues.
Director Pears Foundation
The action learning set has united a professional team and encouraged them to work together and share/present group objectives and ideas.

Jonathan Slack Business Development Specialist Sandvik Coromant UK
It’s a great experience. You will discover things about yourself, the power of authentic questioning and of a group that you did not think of beforehand! It has helped me evelop listening and questioning skills as well as understand managerial styles and their advantages and drawbacks.
Guilia Ferrari Research Fellow London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine
Action learning open doors to both your own abiliites and identifying those in others. It’s a very useful tool to apply both at work and outside work. It’s great for problem solving.
