A key part of a manager’s role is to take risks, experiment and think what if... Essentially to do things differently. This is impossible to teach in a conventional context, you need time to consider current actions, reflect and then experiment. The best technique to describe this innovative learning style is ‘action learning’. This course will teach you the techniques to run and facilitate Action Learning Sets.
