What is Action Learning?

Action Learning is a method of group coaching which involves questioning, listening to self and others and taking action on real issues that are inhibiting progress. A group of 6 individuals agrees to meet 6 times, for a half day, online. During this time participants establish a peer group they can trust and develop greater insight into managing difficult people and situations.

You can find out more about Action Learning here and here.

Arts & Health South West has been offering Action Learning to our members over the last two years. Participants have really appreciated the opportunity to explore and share their own workplace experiences in a small group, especially during challenging times.


Quotes from former participants in AHSW Action Learning Sets:


‘Taking part in the action learning set has been one of my best learning experiences of 2020.  I really enjoy being given time and space to think things through’


‘Having to talk through a situation and dig deep for your own solutions enables you to see the situation from a much broader perspective’


‘I got really constructive support and guidance through complicated issues at a complicated time’
