Action Learning Set Facilitator Training

Using Coaching…to facilitate Action Learning Sets
Action Learning Set

At its simplest, Action Learning is many to one coaching. If you want your organisation to be learning, Action Learning is an efficient and supportive way to do that. It is also a useful tool to develop listening and questioning skills in others.

Learning how to facilitate Action Learning sets will enable you to start sets in your workplace or the organisations where you work. This can be virtually or on site.

Our one day course provides an excellent introduction for those new to Action Learning and development for those with experience. It is run as a set (maximum 6 people).  Some participants will have done some coaching skills training others will be completely new to Action Learning.  This mixture replicates what you will experience when you start a set yourself.

Talk to us about running a course for your people. And four times a year we run open courses.  At the moment, these are all online.  They provide 7 Virtual Coach Training Hours (ICF Core Competencies)

“Absolutely fabulous course –  the approach of the facilitator, pace, responsiveness and depth of knowledge provided were more than I expected.  It seemed to be pitched just right for our group.  Instead of saying “we will be covering that later” she actually answered many of the questions straight away! The content, format and feedback was very useful.   The pre-course information was helpful and linked well to the session. Since most of us were coaches, there was less need to focus on some fundamentals such as questions.” Director, NHS

This training provides comprehensive insight and practical skills in the use of Action Learning. I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in using coaching approaches in training and development work. It sets the use of Action Learning in a clear context and clarifies where its uses are likely to be most beneficial.” Dr Nick Shepherd, Assistant Director of Discipleship and Ministry – Diocese of Southwark

As you develop your skills and your understanding of contexts, your set members will grow and that will affect the performance of your organisation.  So if you want to add value to the work that you do as a Facilitator, we recommend that you consider external supervision.
