Action Learning Groups

Action Learning Groups (ALGs) for Chief Executives and Senior Leaders are facilitated structured and confidential peer-learning environments that provide opportunities for participants to broaden and deepen approaches, mind-sets, strategies and skills to engage with specific and current work-related challenges.  They also help to mitigate some of the unique experiences of isolation and pressure that come with the position of senior leadership.  As well as providing excellent value in terms of return on investment for both participants and their organisations, ALGs are efficient in-the-moment professional development opportunities for participants to:

  • Enhance confidence in their own judgement and values to achieve work objectives
  • Learn from diverse peers and perspectives
  • Develop shared initiatives
  • Gain additional tools, models and articles 
  • Gain respected, experience-based, knowledge and wisdom about organisational leadership in the current context
  • Develop a well-informed strategic focus
  • Become more reflective, thoughtful leaders through a well-facilitated ‘space’ to consider shared challenges, issues and opportunities

Sam Farmer also facilitates Action Learning Groups for leaders at all levels who value the concept of peer-learning.  Those leaders wanting to attend Wellington-based ALGs are referred to Trish Hall (Thought Partners).

I have found working with Sam excellent. His facilitation and exploration of more in-depth issues that face you as a CEO have been amazing and I would recommend him and his group without reservation.
I have found [Sam’s] careful leadership and facilitation extremely helpful to me. He structures the sessions so that we come ready to contribute with topics prepared. He challenges our thinking and provides a safe environment for everyone to be open and share with each other. I would recommend Sam Farmer to others who are seeking thoughtful, challenging facilitation leading to clear results.
