A peer learning group is 4 to 6 leaders of similar level in the organization learning through reflection and dialog. Content is provided to stimulate new perspectives on experiences and focus each session on a management or leadership theme. Peer learning sessions are 60 to 90 minutes each, usually once a month, or as a one off event.
In this article we delve into the content used by peer learning groups and how it makes them so effective.
“Thoughtful reflection on natural experience, in the light of conceptual ideas, is the most powerful tool we have for management learning.” – Henry Mintzberg, co-founder CoachingOurselves
