Action Learning is based on the simple idea that leaders and managers learn best by working together in a group, helping each other find solutions to real work problems through discussions. facilitating action learning is a clear, concise and straightforward guide to this well-established leadership and management development technique. the role of the facilitator is to provide guidance in the action facilitation process. in this practical guide, mike pedler and christine abbott present a new threefold model of the facilitator's role - as initiator, set adviser and facilitator of organizational learning. Supported by many real life cases and practical examples, this superbly practical book shows you how - as a manager, business coach, trainer or facilitator - you can add to your repertoire of skills and abilities, and enhance your effectiveness as a leader and developer. Suitable as the course text for ILM Level 5 and 7 qualifications in Action Learning Facilitation.
