February 2nd Special Meeting: Introduction to Action Learning

Join us for this workshop facilitated by Cameron James and Ann Boyum, certified Action Learning Coaches who have been trained through the World Institute of Action Learning (WIAL) and are establishing a local Minnesota chapter of WIAL.

Cameron is a consultant in organizational learning and development at Park Nicollet Health Services. He has built action learning programs for
multiple organizations in the Twin Cities.

Ann is a professional coach with a focus on leadership development. She helped to establish Target's Executive Coaching practice and to incorporate action learning into the program.

Action Learning (AL) has emerged as a method of choice for global companies, government agencies, and non-profit groups that want to improve quality, cut costs, create new products and services, and change the cultures of their organizations. AL solves problems and develops leaders simultaneously by providing simple rules which force participants to think critically and work collaboratively. A key component is the Action Learning coach, who assists group members in reflecting, not on their problem solving, but on the elevation of their group functioning.

During the session you’ll have a chance to:
Articulate the basics of AL
Practice the AL questioning technique
Understand the role of the AL coach and how it contributes to effective problem solving
Identify the various leadership skills incorporated into the AL process.

** This is a special workshop opportunity. Note the different starting and ending times. Registration will be $35 for all members, $75 for guests.
