Are you using action learning? Blog about it here.

The Annual Forum provides an opportunity for presenters and attendees to offer and participate in great ways to create organizational change and performance.  Through engaging in thought-provoking conversation with leading speakers in the fields of action learning, organizational change and culture, team coaching, and leadership development, attendees will gain insights and answers to the unique challenges they encounter each day in their organizations.

  

This year we are eager to bring to you a critical topic that continues to be at the center of attention for leaders and organizations throughout America. How can we strengthen the level of engagement in the workplace and influence the hearts and minds of those who can generate organizational success? We have known for years that the level of engagement directly affects the bottom line in many ways. And while we might “know” it, many of us still struggle to achieve levels of engagement that make a positive difference in our organizations. Join us as we explore and discover information that could liberate our thinking, inspire us, and offer possibilities for building real organizational excellence. Grab a few of your associates and join us in Seattle for this year’s conference dedicated to “Energizing Engagement Through Action Learning”.

   

The level of engagement is affected by many elements in an organization: involvement in problem solving and decision making, the health of the organizational culture, and the relationship with leaders and associates are examples.   We are seeking presenters who are dedicated to inspiring professionals in the practice of improving engagement, leadership, cultural health, and organizational performance with presentations focused on:

  • Team coaching using action learning;
  • Identifying and creating organizational culture change;
  • Action learning and leadership development;
  • Strategy and the role of action learning
  • Neuroscience and engagement
  • Presence and engagement
  • Action learning and organizational engagement
  • Using action learning in organizational change
  • Using action learning in team building
  • Engagement: Case studies, research data, and applications for us
  • Action Learning and Diversity & Inclusion
