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

Join the Coaching SIG on February 15th 2018, to experience Action Learning in a unique event led by Mies de Koning (Certified Action Learning Coach) and Angela Wright (ATD Coaching Center for Excellence). 

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. 

About our presenter: Mies de Koning (firmforchange.com) is a Certified Action Learning Coach and a trained Action Researcher. He is part of the team that won the "2017 best implementation" award at the Global Conference of the World Institute for Action Learning in Shanghai.

Mies is an expert in Social and Organizational Learning Methodologies. Fascinated by personal leadership theory and group dynamics, Mies started his career as a group therapist in Child Psychiatry. As a Program Director in Higher Education at Avans University, he led curriculum development and staff for a Bachelor in Socio-Educational work for 10 years.
