Example text

If you’re a manager, you have the ability, by using your own behaviour as an example, to give your department a ‘facelift’. • You don’t have to become a different person to ‘sell’. • Others are a helpful resource, a network to be used and developed. • By behaving less competitively and working ‘constructively’ with others, you can achieve more. • You can contribute directly to strategic decisions even if you have little responsibility. • You’re not alone with your quandaries and dilemmas, or even your doubts and fears.

Action learning stops that. Another participant put it slightly differently: Others see things you don’t ... but it’s the way you learn this that is the hallmark of action learning.
