Action Learning in Action: How Action Learning Coaches Harness Collective Ambition
Can you pinpoint why some companies thrive, some teams are high performers and some leaders seem to “lead” their teams “better”? One answer can be Collective Ambition. That is, how leaders and teams together think about their organizational purpose, what is to be accomplished, how they will collaborate to achieve results, the conditions needed to align their brand promise with their core values, and how they shape the behaviors to support sustained “collective excellence” over singular goals.
I am pleased to welcome you to the 2016 WIAL Annual Conference in Warsaw, Poland on October 19-20th. This year, the theme is “Developing Agile Leaders Through Action Learning ”.
As organizations, both private and public, experience internal and external challenges, such as technology, communication, social expectations, etc., so is the need to develop leaders who can create the conditions for organizational performance, teams that can innovate faster and organizations that create knowledge management systems that go beyond formal roles and responsibilities.
April 11th's meeting, held at the beautiful Montlake Library in Seattle was another great evening of sharing and learning. We continue to have new people join us and learn the impact action learning can have on individuals and organizations.
During the March meeting, many noted that our skills at asking questions, particularly open-ended questions, was fairly poor. As a result, it was agreed that we would spend the April meeting improving our ability to ask good questions, avoiding our tendency to ask leading or yes/no questions.
