We are big fans of peer-to-peer action learning – it can be a brilliant low-cost way to create a powerful network and a valuable source of ideas and support. Many of the challenges which you face as a leader or entrepreneur won’t require external consultancy or training, you can work through them with your peers, drawing on their experience and benefitting from a structured approach to exploration and questioning. In this series of blogs we’ve produced a mini guide to help you plan and run your own peer-to-peer action learning set.
3. There are 4 phases in our recommended approach, and each has a very specific purpose. You need to hold each other to account to make sure that you use the time in each section appropriately, and don’t try and “sneak” to the next phase.
In this phase the person who is presenting should outline their challenge in as much detail as possible, using all of the allocated time. Keep it focussed, remember to tell people the information they may not know, and you can also talk about things you have already tried or considered.
