Action Learning Associates
This site reflects our forty years’ experience with Action Learning, or as it is also known, Action Reflection Learning. Unlike traditional training, Action Learning is holistic, focusing on the 'complete' person or organisation. The process of Action Learning enables them to identify the knowledge, skills, experience and behaviour necessary to be successful and empowers them to achieve. In it's personal development form it uses the participant's 'day job' or a specific project as the learning vehicle through which participants are able to identify what they need to know or be able to do to be successful. In its organisational development mode the focus is on the new knowledge and skills the organisation needs to prosper and the values and behaviours it needs to adopt to be successful.
Learning in Action - Helping people to help themsleves
Action Learning empowers people; it frees them from the constraints of traditional thinking and enables them to both develop themselves and optimise the performance of their organisations. We have successfully run both Personal Development and Organisational Change, what we call In-Plant programmes, in many different parts of the world in widely differing cultures and languages and in every case those involved have responded enthusiastically to the opportunity to help themselves. We are happy to share this experience with you.

Will 2017 be an interesting year?
I am sure that the changes we will see in 2017 will have some impact on everyone, no mater where you are on the planet. Will this be good or bad? I believe it depends on us. Life is a journey. If we want to optimise our journey we have to do something about it and change provides the opportunity. If you'd like to know what and how read my book. You can download it in PDF format on this site or get it from Amazon in ebook or paperback at: http://www.amazon.co.uk/George-P.-Boulden/e/B001KHBJ34
I hope you will take this opportunity and become one of us who can truly say 'I did it my way'.
With all very best wishes for an even greater year of learning in 2017
