Certified Action Learning Coach CALC (1) CALC (2)

These intensive programmmes give participants the skills and the experience they need to excel as Action Learning coaches in a variety of challenging situations. Participants will be required to attend two, two-day workshops: CALC 1 and CALC 2, and conduct several Action Learning sessions independently from the class experiences. In addition, workshops use outside presenters from organizations needing real solutions. Every participant is required to take on the challenge of being an Action Learning coach for at least one session. A dedicated Senior or Master Action Learning coach works with every Action Learning team formed during CALC1 and CALC 2 workshops. This provides for intensive and exceptionally rich feedback for trainees when they take on the coaching role.

  • Participants for CALC 1 & 2 are strictly limited to 8 participants per workshop. Completion of Foundations of Action Learning is a prerequisite for CALC 1 & 2
  • CALC 1 focuses on advanced coaching methods. CALC 2 focuses on the organizational issues that must be addressed to implement a successful Action Learning program.
