Revans pioneered action learning as a management discipline and although he had never produced one single definition to the process, he passionately believed it to be the ancient form of acquiring wisdom. For him, there was not one single form (format) to the approach.

Action learning requires a profound and meaningful engagement and commitment to the process of being changed through the learning process which ultimately could not be communicated through a simple formulaic or technique. .

The future of everything we do is directly connected to the future of how we (humans) process (life long in most case) learning added to our ability to communicate wisdom beyond the information gathered, since the pure application of the latter is already dominated by intelligent machines. Needless to say we cannot compete with them in their own game.

Therefore, learning should moves us towards applied wisdom and not simply towards more application of information and knowledge simply.

Action Learning

“Silence is a way to build strength and self-sufficiency.” Ryan Holiday

“The more you say, the more likely you are to say something foolish.” Robert Greene

… and how we nurture them!

Having a well-balanced approach to life is the only way to grow oneself and grow and nurture better life and working relations.

The health life we all dream of can only happen when we proactively engage with others in a positive mental attitude, and congruently align personal beliefs and values with action.

To examine oneself should be a daily pursuit we all aim to enact and prioritise.

The only life worth living is the one that is designed as a foundation for future generations to build upon. Living it in full and lighting it up for others who are coming after you should be out life’s true mantra.

What kind of life have you been writing?

Where there’s a ‘why’ there’s a way.

It’s not that highstreet is dead it is just that most old timers lost their ‘why’ along the way.

Question: “Why do we do the things we the way we do and continue to do them that way? Why are we in business? Why do we engage with people in general and most importantly with our customer base this or that way? Why should we continue to go along that path? Doing things purely based on mechanical memory will kill any business moving forward. “Well that is just the way we have always done business” said the bankrupt company director…

Heritage, traditions and core business values can (and perhaps should) always be kept and preserved providing they are not cristalised in the form, shape or model. Adaptability and willingness to change carry the form.

When we are bold enough to question why we are doing certain things the way we are, we open the way to understand ‘how’ we should be doing them too. Taking too long to discover that, and we might as well find ourselves out of business. To paraphrase Heraclitus ‘Change is the only true constant in nature.’

High street retail the way we’ve know it for years is dead but it was not digital that killed most of them. Their own business myopia and shortsightedness did. Some shops are still thriving and will continue to do so.

We manifest what is in our minds whether consciously or unconsciously… Most of us do not think too much of our thoughts and how much energy they generate. If we could only believe in the unlimited creative power we have within, we would start manifesting our thoughts seeking to bring them into reality.

We would give more time to carefully reflect on these thoughts and them craftily transform them into actionable ideas that would change the course of our lives and of those around us. It all starts in the mind.

A time has come to an idea when the thoughts empowering it completely grabs hold of you and it is stronger than any other feeling or emotion you might experience even your worse fears. That is the point in life when moving away from it or even thinking about doing something else becomes so painful you cannot turn left or right, or turn back, YOU HAVE GOT TO DO IT. When you become possessed by it then nothing is more powerful than that, you know it’s time has come.

When nothing else has you bu kit the manifestation and realisation of that idea or ideal.

What would that idea be for you? Have you ever experienced that? Are you ready for this magical unique moment? That is when life meets its destiny and you discover your true purpose for existence.
