Yesler Community Center

Problem Solving Through Action Learning
Action learning has quickly emerged as a tool used by organizations for solving their critical and complex problems. It has concurrently become a primary methodology utilized by companies around the world for developing leaders, building teams, and improving corporate capabilities. Action learning programs have become instrumental in creating thousands of new products and services, saving billions of dollars, reducing production and delivery times, expanding customer bases, improving service quality and positively changing organizational cultures. Recent surveys by ASTD indicate that two-thirds of executive leadership programs in the United States used action learning.
Through a brief lecture, 30-minute demonstration and debrief, participants will gain an increased awareness about the power of questions, improved questioning abilities and improved problem-solving abilities.
