What is action learning?

Action learning is essentially peer problem solving in a group, which is referred to as a 'set'.

It can also be described as group coaching, because like individual coaching, it provides a confidential and structured space to think about workplace problems, issues and challenges and identify options and ways forward.

Through questioning, reflection and acting, set members gain both a deeper understanding of the issues they face and what they might do, as well as some personal insights into how they think, feel, work, lead and behave.
