Action Learning Groups
This is a unique approach to management development which involves working in small groups (either in-house or with managers from other organisations) to discuss and resolve management issues.
The group normally meets on a regular basis (either bi-monthly or quarterly) and is facilitated by myself. I see my role as making best use of the resources in the group and to help members to challenge each other (and themselves) in a constructive and helpful way.
