Event Details

An introduction to the basic skills of action-learning
Understand the concept, meet some of the key micro-tools
and explore how to put them to work for you.

Today's global environment is one of rapid change. To survive and thrive, we need to understand how that change can bring both risk and opportunity. Contented has developed a quality framework for participative and experiential learning that helps address these challenges.

Attend the workshop to develop the practice of Action Learning and plan how to deploy it in your personal or professional life; explore how the process can drive values-led growth and help develop new products and services.

Action Learning is a process that helps individuals improve performance by studying their own actions and experience. It's a means of successfully engaging small groups of people who, working together on real challenges, can use their combined knowledge and experience to grow.

Who should come?
Employees and freelancers from any sector who are responsible for generating income; creative professionals, teachers, lecturers, trainers and other people working in a learning environment; anyone facing or managing change.

Learning Objectives
