Peer Consultations that Offer Leaders Expert Advice in Real Time
Experienced practitioners come to leadership development opportunities with a wealth of knowledge and expertise that can be tapped in the service of the whole group's learning. A new RCLA Practice Note offers a behind-the-scenes look at how to design and run peer consultations that allow practitioners to bring leadership challenges or dilemmas to "workshop" with a learning group.
Through the consultations, the presenter gets new insights into his or her challenge and often walks away with specific new strategies to test. At the same time, the rest of the group practices advice-giving - an important leadership skill - and often also gains new insights into similar challenges they may face in their own work.
