Feedback from our customers in the Independent consultants sector

It is an opportunity to refresh your knowledge and practice of action learning … I particularly liked having an open platform for sharing, reflecting and learning.

Claire-Marie Barth Global Development Consultant

What I liked about this masterclass was the pace of delivery and rigour of the content.  I left feeling reinvigorated and motivated.

The skills I have developed from both being a set facilitator and a set member have changed and enhanced my work as a coach, a mentor, a mediator and facilitator.  And as a process, Action Learning has enabled me to make a more full offer to clients – to continue their learning and support for each other, in their work – sometimes around specific areas of training.  

I expect I will be involved with Action Learning as a facilitator and set member for the rest of my professional life and beyond.

Being able to immerse myself in this style of learning really helped me to gain an experiential understanding of its structure and impact.  Through this I developed my listening and diagnostic skills, my questioning maturity and my general facilitation skills.

Jane Ralls Independent dance manager

My action learning set continued to meet as a self- facilitated set and was extremely valuable. I am struck that for all of us it  changed the way we are, let alone what we do in the world and at work. There is a sense of rootedness and groundedness in each of us that has come from the enhanced sense of our own worth and capacity we gained from working together in an action learning set

Jennie Levin Independent consultant

It’s definitely worth undertaking action learning to broaden one’s horizons, meet new and interesting people in similar roles whilst learning a new technique for solving problems

Peter Spindler Director Peter Spindler Associates

Action learning is a great use of time to develop as a manager, colleague and human being

Rachel Rees Independent Civic & Social Organization Professional

Sonja held the space and the set, she was still, calm, steady and consistent and extremely sensitive to the needs of the group.  She gained my trust very quickly, enabled me to be vulnerable, to contribute and thus speed up my learning

Louise Ladbrooke Freelance consultant

I really enjoyed the virtual action learning training and found it really comfortable – being in a space and focusing on what I am hearing.  I felt very engaged in every session and experienced it as a really powerful process

Toby Lindsay Lecturer and consultant

At the beginning of the course the idea of facilitating a virtual set would have made me very nervous.  Experiencing it has given me the confidence to do it. Virtual action learning is like stepping into another world – a curious but engaging experience”
