• Action Learning Modules

    Choose from a wide range of activities to enhance the learning experience or achieve specific team objectives. All modules last half a day. While they can be delivered in any combination with other executive development modules, we can advise you on tuning the order to meet your learning objectives.

     

    The modules are pitched at professionals with some experience of line management or project management. Please talk to us, if you want us to pitch them at less experienced High-Potentials or more experienced leaders.

     

    The group may be an existing team, they may be starting to work together or come from separate teams across your organisation. We can advise you on tuning the content to meet your learning objectives.
