Essilor deployed a worldwide leadership and team development initiative called Grow Your Team in 2015 with Action Learning as a key component. The Action Learning sessions were so valued and appreciated by those who participated that the Thailand organization decided to internalize Action Learning and to keep on running sessions beyond the initial program. We started to train coaches in 2016 and in 2017 we are running Action Learning sessions with internal coaches once a week.
Participants really value the opportunity to share management issues with peers and to use questions to open up new ideas and views. Action Learning has become an internal process to solve management issues, encourage sharing and learning and definitely helps to build trust between peers.
We are excited to continue the Action Learning sessions this year and beyond.
“Being an Action Learning coach has really helped me to better listen, not just during the sessions but also outside, as a manager with my team.”.
