Community Action Learning

Bringing companies and community groups together to provoke innovation and collaborative learning, helping companies strengthen their leadership capacity.

Leadership action in a community setting       

Sometimes the most powerful learning comes from being outside our comfort zones, navigating unfamiliar territory and having our assumptions challenged.

Sometimes we learn most about ourselves when we are completely engaged in helping others.

Community Action Learning (CAL) is a deliberate and carefully planned approach to blending organisational learning objectives with real world community needs to the benefit of both.

A dedicated Impact team has continued to build a huge global network of community organisations giving us unparalleled reach in building effective partnerships in learning and in action.

We have used CAL to help companies strengthen their leadership capacity by testing leaders in unfamiliar, ambiguous and complex territory.

CAL has helped transform participants’ approaches to innovation, to employee engagement, to stakeholder management, to teamwork, project management and strategy development.

In a world where all our organisations and our leaders need to be more comfortable with diversity, where we need to break down siloes between groups and connect to our sense of common purpose CAL provides a vehicle to deliver real learning through real change.

Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.
