Paulina Chu
Action Learning: Research and Practice, v21 n1 p94-98 2024
This is a reflective Account of Practice paper that delves into the author's role as an Action Learning coach, emphasizing the crucial role of intuition in facilitating breakthroughs and creating an environment conducive to problem-solving. It narrates a transformative 2019 coaching session where the author used unconventional techniques to empower a team member to create a comprehensive action plan for a complex issue. The paper underscores the significance of addressing 'invisible' group dynamics, such as shifts in group energy and emotional responses. It emphasizes personal reflection, shared learning and heightened sensitivity to group dynamics for effective coaching. The paper discusses daily practices: mindfulness, compassion and post-session reflection; these amplify intuitive responses, resilience and self-awareness. The paper highlights the Action Learning coach's capacity to positively impact others, inspire authentic responses and unveil hidden potential.
