Action Learning Project (ALP)
A distinguishing feature of GL is the use of immersion learning. GL’s unique design integrates multiple pedagogies to accelerate professional growth. At the start of the program, each company identifies a strategic business challenge that becomes its objective Action Learning Project. It then charges its team of participants to apply new thinking and experimentation to drive recommendations. The stakes are real, and the results must be of highest quality, but coaching and reflection make it safe for participants to take risks and push toward innovative outcomes.
Throughout the program, as participants work on this project of strategic importance to their C-level leaders, a Sponsor in each company oversees the project charter, while a Coach guides the collaboration and supports group and individual growth. The action learning happens within countries that have significantly changed the face of global business, so participants learn new leadership behaviors and team effectiveness skills while delivering business results for these demanding markets. The result is that ALPs deliver both learning and vital business outcomes.
