Emancipatory Organizational Development through Action Learning, 4/1

Emancipatory Organizational Development through Action Learning

Thursday, April 1, 2021, 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM EDT

Action Learning is a powerful process for organizational and team development focused on both solving real problems, and leadership development. In this interactive webinar, Mies de Koning will argue that the emancipatory potential of action learning is inherent to the method, however relies on purposeful application by practitioners.

“The ultimate power of a successful general staff lies, not in the brilliance of its individual members, but in the cross-fertilisation of its collective abilities.” -Reg Revans (originator of Action Learning)

At the end of the (90-minutes) session participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the historic origins of Action Learning and contemporary applications in leadership development, coaching and organizational learning.
  • Describe a workers’ presenting problem that is appropriate for Action Learning.
  • Explain emancipatory design principles for Action Learning Programs.
  • Discuss and describe opportunities to further develop Action Learning as an emancipatory form of organizational learning.
