• Action Learning is a simple and powerful way for individuals to learn from each other. Working collaboratively with a group of no more than 8 people who meet up regularly, the group support each other to work through work place problems and challenges. Using a coaching and mentoring style the group learn from each other and bring fresh insight into the discussion. These sessions can produce amazing results and a long-lasting supportive network that can last for many years.  These sessions are often self-facilitated and require the strength and maturity of the group to make sure the sessions are goal-focused and not used as a means to express frustrations with no successful outcome in mind.
