A few Action Learning principles
People who take responsibility in a situation have the best chance of taking actions that will make a difference
Bring your most burning or pressing issues to an Action Learning set. Through the listening and questioning that emerges from the group, you’ll work out what really matters to you, what it is you really want to do, make choices, keep it alive and take actions to keep it moving. At the end of an Action Learning session, you’ll engage with three specific actions at least.
Learning should be greater than the rate of change
An organisation which continues to re-express the ideas of the past is NOT learning. Action learning invites us to see our situations with fresh eyes and discover its opportunities.
Learning includes the stance of not knowing
We become open to learning when we tap into what we don’t know. There are situations where there are no right answers, our expertise then is all about learning and experimenting and not so much about knowing what we can’t know anyway.
Learning involves both expert knowledge (what can be taught or read) and insights from questioning
Learning is about asking open and stretching questions in conditions of uncertainty. Keeping an intriguing question open is the best guide to find elegant and creative solutions along the way.
Any belief or assumption might be questioned
… including all of the above.
