Action Learning

Obenaus August Workshops 2014 (9)8-9 August 2017

Dissolving Problems through Asking Questions


Learn to learn like Socrates. Reflect upon your actions and prepare new actions. In just two days you learn how you set up Action Learning Circles, to lead and and guide them. Acton Learning is probably the most effective and among the fastest methods to deal with wicked or unsolvable issues and problems in small groups. And it’s funny, too.

Rainer von Leoprechting practiced and instructed Action Learning with managers of companies, EU officials in Brussels, scientists and engineers, worked with board members, management teams, project leaders, politicians or young people.
Join  his joyful work with any and every one. Be inspired to create new solutions by asking ever more questions.

Your financial contribution incl. meal, snacks and drinks: 360 EUR for both days. Morning session 09:00 till 12:30, afternoon session 14:00 till 17:00.
If you can’t come to Obenaus this time, you can train and practice online, too!
