How they work
Individuals bring real work issues, challenges or problems, and take it in turns to be the ‘client’ in the group, when they are being listened to, receive help, challenge and support from their colleagues in order to find new ways of working with their issue.
An action learning group acts simultaneously as a place of learning and challenge – and of refreshment and support. It actively builds networks and collaboration while leaving the major responsibility for change and learning with the individual.
The group provides a balance of support and challenge, creating a “safe” environment which enables each member to act and learn effectively, becoming more aware of group processes and gradually developing more effective teamwork.
