This sounds suspiciously like action learning in action! And the action learning set begins to resemble a learning company/organization in microcosm: 20 WHAT IS ACTION LEARNING? You can’t create a learning organisation, but you can enhance people’s capacities to learn and align their activities in creative ways. (Gareth Morgan) The challenge, then, is: how to create an action learning ethos throughout an organization? A recent study on how learning takes place in organizations, carried out by the Institute for Research on Learning in Palo Alto, California, came up with the following conclusion: The most powerful organizational learning and collective knowledge-sharing grows through informal relationships and personal networks – via working conversations in communities of practice.

This questioning is also a way of admitting to our own ignorance, of saying, ‘I don’t know. ’ And by questioning others, we increase the scope of our – and their – searching. L – Learning – results from the combination of the other two: P (all the knowledge we accumulate through reading or going on courses and listening to lectures – the knowledge of the experts) and Q (asking questions about that programmed knowledge and about the circumstances you find yourself in). But there is a further P which we each need to examine.

And disagreements are approached constructively, by trying to work out where they spring from. Silences are OK, too, and body language tells you a lot. BECOMING EMPOWERED Definitions of empowering – or rather, becoming empowered – refer to individuals gaining in confidence, feeling they have something to offer, knowing how to put across ideas, how to ask questions, how to take responsibility, as well as being given – or taking – the opportunity to become more active and involved. For managers, empowering may mean removing the blocks that prevent their staff from carrying out their jobs effectively.
