Virtual action learning
Many organisations prefer to experience action learning direct from their place of work so they can participate within the time and budget constraints they face, yet reap the same benefits.
Our virtual action learning sessions run in parallel with our regular action learning sets so you and your colleagues can take part from wherever you are, be it across multiple sites, or even different countries around the world.
It brings the benefits of action learning to organisations that may not be able to access it in any other way, and indeed builds connections between colleagues who work in different locations and do not have the opportunity to meet face to face. It helps them engage in a powerful form of learning together, in a way that they have not been able to before.
Virtual action learning is about helping to embed skill sets that ultimately save money which may otherwise have been spent on buying in specialist management or leadership consultancy services.
The outcomes you achieve will be directly related to the specific issues that you bring to the sessions. All topics discussed are real, not simulated, and follow the proven theory that we all learn most effectively when overcoming difficult situations and achieving critical goals.
It is a really effective method of delivering accelerated and sustainable learning”.
How does it work?
What happens in an action learning set? Virtual action learning (VAL) gives organisations the opportunity to follow a structured process to brainstorm organisational challenges, find ways to resolve issues as a group and generate innovative ideas. It’s a cost-effective method of taking part, so if you have time or budget constraints, it’s an equally effective way of incorporating action learning into professional development for key personnel in the business.
Effective distance learning with tangible results
Everyone taking part will gain from sharpened listening skills, the ability to reflect more deeply and experience greater insight. They’ll also have the opportunity to hone virtual leadership skills which are of growing importance for today’s global organisations and businesses.
Working together in a team, participants develop effective methods to manage real issues, share views and generate innovative ideas. In essence, both your people and the business will benefit from new skills, to be ‘ready now’ for the challenges that lie ahead.

I was struck by how quickly the set, with the support of a skilled facilitator, built an intimate rapport.
