Building Competitive Advantage Through Teamwork, Leadership, and Learning

Action Learning Associates (ALA) partners with global organizations to solve challenges by creating immersive learning experiences using customized methodologies and tools to inspire and transform leaders.

Leaders Learn Best When They Are Engaged

Using an experiential approach to bring learning content to life, Action Learning engages individuals and teams at the intellectual,
emotional, and behavioral level — stimulating development that is targeted, learner-centered, and enduring.

  • “I understand the message”


  • “I believe it is the right message”


  • “I will act on the message”



Building Better Leaders Starts With Seamlessly Designing Better Learning

Our integrated approach of Action/Reflection/Learning can be likened to weaving a Red Thread through the learning engagement – creating context for the learner by linking all of the concepts together in a way that is personalized for the individual and connected to the business.
