Why I like action learning:
Lifelong learning engenders structure and self-discipline in a world that is characterized by a competitive struggle to meet and exceed expectations. The process of action learning is especially valuable as it provides an opportunity for self-reflection. In so doing, it helps participants to resolve the various forms of conflict that impede progress in society.
