Action Learning for Change Leaders and Intrapreneurs

4 week online Zoom program running each Tuesday evening in March 2018


Why action learning?

Action learning provides two valuable outcomes for an organisation:

  • Answers to difficult problems are developed and implemented
  • Those developing and implementing the answers learn valuable new skills


Why change leaders?

It has been said that people don't resist change.  They resist being changed.  Effective change leaders can involve people directly in the change and give them a voice.

And this is what happens within an action learning project team (“action learning set”).


What is the structure and key outcomes of this program?

This special 4 week interactive online Zoom program will see you:

  • Learning the origins and varieties of Action Learning (eg. British, American and hybrids)
  • Developing options for setting up Action Learning project teams
  • Exploring real case studies to deepen your understanding for how to successfully implement action learning within your own context

 The program will run on the following dates:

  • Week 1 - The Origins - Tuesday 6th March 2018 - 7:30-9pm (Melbourne time)
  • Week 2 - Setting up Project Teams - Tuesday 13th March 2018 - 7:30-9pm (Melbourne time)
  • Week 3 - Case Study Present Backs - Tuesday 20th March 2018 - 7:30-9pm (Melbourne time)
  • Week 4 - Review and Action Planning - Tuesday 27th March 2018 - 7:30-9pm (Melbourne time)

By the end of this program you will have:

  • A plan for how to implement Action Learning in your context
  • Ideas for improving satisfaction and performance, productivity and effectiveness in intact work teams
  • Developed an understanding as to why the world is in-between paradigms and why it matters

All program participants will recieve a free copy of Bob Dick's latest e-book "Action Learning: Using Project Teams to build Leadership and Resilience".
