As part of ALA’s commitment to continuing professional development for company trainers and facilitators we ran an Associates’ Day on 10 December at our London training venue. A number of Associates joined Managing Director, Ruth Cook, and Director, Sonja Antell for peer networking, exchange of best practice and updates on company developments. As well as working in action learning sets, we discussed the ethical issues of action learning and this discussion is reflected in the revised principles for company Associates, which will be published shortly on the ALA website. Sonja, who has responsibility for business development, also demonstrated the successful inroads that the company has made during 2013 in developing and extending its social media presence. This includes our fortnightly blog with insightful contributions from a variety of action learning practitioners on a range of topics related to action learning and organisational development.
