Upcoming Coaching SIG Events


The Unparalleled Power of Questions: Action Learning Coach Experience, TAKE 2.Open in a New Window

Back by popular demand (a long waitlist for the first event): The Action Learning Coach Experience, TAKE 2. 

Coaches and Talent Professionals know it: The power of questions is unlimited!

Join the Coaching SIG on March 1st, to experience Action Learning in a unique event led by Mies de Koning (Certified Action Learning Coach). 

Action Learning Coaches enforce the power of questions through a very simple, yet highly effective and challenging method. In Action Learning, a group of 6-8 participants develops leadership skills, by working together on solving a complex problem. Questions are the driving force of Action Learning, and empower participants to discover the root of problems and to unlock hidden knowledge.

In this event you will experience a total action learning demonstration. In an extensive debrief we will reflect on the Action Learning Coaching process and discuss observations. Because of the highly interactive nature of this event there will only be space for 16 participants.
