The further we progress in our leadership development, the more often we are confronted with challenges and problems of a complex nature that don’t have right or wrong answers. Leadership author Ronald Heifetz calls these challenges ‘adaptive’ issues in contrast to technical issues. In order to solve such issues, we may learn from our own and other people’s experiences, and Action Learning is one of the ways of achieving this.
Learning to understand what assumptions our actions are based on, and which mental models and convictions we possess and apply. By intensively questioning each other and sharing experiences you, as a leader, become more aware of your own patterns of thinking, assumptions and convictions, which may be obstructive in taking on (complex) challenges. This creates room to arrive at different insights and approaches for experimenting.
