Today I enjoyed spending time with some of the team from 3D Coaching, training to facilitate Action Learning Sets. This valuable way of working with small groups is about listening to the issues presented by group members, asking questions to help clarify them, and afterwards reflecting on the process as a group.
I definitely value working with others to help them resolve issues such in their lives, particularly to do with vocation, and using tools which encourage reflective learning from experience.
It is interesting to note similarties and differences between a tools such as this, and one from the religious world such as Contemplative Listening Groups. Both work well in different contexts, one with a focus on action, and the other on interior listening.
