Dürkoop and Ingrid Kreksch

You are warmly welcome to join us at the Imagination Club on Wednesday, 14 December at 18h45 for an interactive, experimental workshop on:

Action Learning
Ingrid Kreksch and Katrin Dürkoop

The real voyage of discovery lies not in seeking new landscapes, but in seeing with new eyes.
(Marcel Proust)

Action learning is a technique which can be used with small groups (maximum eight people) to tackle urgent problems arising in the work place.

It has a number of astonishing and unexpected benefits:

  • Participants learn about themselves and each other
  • Real problems are solved
  • Effective action is taken
  • Leadership potential in the team is developed
  • Trust and teamwork are improved
  • The technique implants a learning culture in the team.

How does it work?

Action learning is based on Socratic dialogue. Its power lies in asking questions. One member of the group is the problem presenter or owner of the focus area, and one plays the role of the action learning coach. The other members of the group make statements only in response to a question. The rapid and profound learning that this approach unlocks has to do with the way our assumptions are constantly challenged and we are required to unlearn beliefs and assumptions that no longer serve us or that do not adequately reflect the facts. The fact that everybody in the group is similarly challenged makes an action learning group a safe place in which the experience the disorientation which inevitably comes when our worldview is readjusted. A suitable level of confidentiality is explicitly built into each session, as required.

Ingrid Kreksch and Katrin Dürkoop are working in Human Resources and have participated in a training to become Action learning coaches.
