With Action Learning, organizations solve critical and complex problems while simultaneously building strong leaders—in real time.
This form of “learning by doing” is the primary method leading companies worldwide are using to develop leaders, build teams, and improve corporate capabilities.
The Action Learning process starts with a group of high-potential individuals with diverse functional backgrounds and experiences. This cross-functional team is assigned to work on an important and urgent business problem, unlike anything most of them have ever dealt with previously. With the multitude of different perspectives brought to the group, they are able to move beyond their own areas of expertise, combining their broad base of knowledge to come up with ideas and solutions they never would have arrived at individually.
Additionally, an Action Learning coach is there to highlight and facilitate lessons learned throughout the process amid the urgency of getting the problem solved. The skills and abilities developed through this process can be applied throughout the organization, again and again, regardless of the specific challenge at hand.
