Becoming a Certified Action Learning coach enhances professional skills, increases organizational value and can lead to career advancement. This intensive program gives participants the skills and the experience they need to excel as Action Learning coaches in a variety of challenging situations. Participants will be required to attend two, two-day workshops: 

CALC 1 and CALC 2, and conduct several Action Learning sessions independently from the class experiences. The CALC program uses the same basic approach used in the Foundations of Action Learning program, interspersing concepts and practice. 

In addition, workshops use outside presenters from organizations needing real solutions.
Every participant is required to take on the challenge of being an Action Learning coach for at least one session. A dedicated Senior or Master Action Learning coach works with every Action Learning team formed during  CALC 1 and CALC 2 workshops. This provides for an intensive and exceptionally rich feedback process for trainees when they take on the coaching role.

CALC 1 focuses on advanced coaching methods. Content presentations and discussions address each of the following Action Learning team issues:

  • Developing complete problem statements including root issues and solution goals
  • Aligning questions with the stage of the problem solving process
  • Dealing with typical group dynamics issues that face problem solving teams

CALC 2 focuses on the organizational issues that must be addressed to implement a successful Action Learning program. Content presentations and discussions address each of the following advanced Action Learning team issues:

  • Contracting issues
  • Putting together a program development team
  • Designing the program
  • Identifying problems for solution
  • Forming teams
  • Building and maintaining team morale and motivation
  • Maintaining senior management involvement and support
