Leading Together – Action Learning

Following the success of our Action Learning Peer groups, we are now inviting expressions of interest in the next cohort due to launch in January 2023.
SLF members have consistently told us that we need to transform how we work together, how we learn together, and how we support one another in our demanding leadership roles. With this in mind, we have been working to create additional opportunities for purposeful and action-oriented collaborative learning and mutual support. Action Learning groups create a space, both online and face to face, where Chief Executives and other senior leaders in unique national roles can share in high quality, facilitated conversations around your key leadership challenges with a focus on Covid Recovery and achieving the ambitions set out in Scotland’s National Performance Framework.
This offer is open to all SLF Members and funding is already in place to support participation.  

Participation will offer you:

– Mutual support and challenge from fellow CEOs in a confidential environment
– An opportunity to review your strategic challenges and key leadership issues with other CEOs Time to reflect on, and learn from, your experience and the experience of others
– Test and broaden your leadership approach and expand options for action.  

This new group will meet up to 6 times over 6 – 8 months for 3 hours. We will begin with a virtual meeting and then meet either in person or virtually depending on the preferences of the participants. In addition, there will be opportunities for structured personal reflection and paired conversations outwith group meetings. 

The first 3 meetings will be facilitated by highly experienced external facilitators from Taylor Clarke. The facilitators will help the group establish itself with the aim of becoming self-sustaining for at least a further 3 meetings.
This new Set will commence on Tuesday 17 January 2023, 13.00 to 16.00, with additional facilitated meetings planned for Tuesday 14 February, 13.00 to 16.00 and Tuesday 14 March, 13.00 to 16.00. 
We are now inviting you to confirm your interest and availability for this new cohort. If you are interested in participating, please sign up as soon as possible: contact  scottishleadersforum@gov.scot
