Dr. Bea Carson - Author, speaker, and effective instructor in the field of Action Learning

Dr. Bea Carson has mastered teaching Action Learning to the full spectrum of organizational levels.

Action Learning is a powerful technique for solving problems, but of more importance, it is an effective tool! It enriches an organizational culture; it fosters an environment of inquiry and respect.

Companies that embrace the Action Learning process experience a shift in culture:

  • They become a learning organization
  • They experience higher levels of leadership development
  • They develop more cohesive teams
  • They truly solve their problems instead of putting Band-aids on the symptoms.

Dr. Bea Carson can bring all this to your organization. She readily connects with her audience, using analogies from her experiences in marathon running, as well as her many years working as a program design engineer.

Dr. Carson coached Action Learning at Constellation Energy Company, a $12.5 billion Fortune 200 company. In 2005, Fortune Magazine voted Constellation the "most admired energy company." The division responsible for spearheading the Action Learning initiative has doubled in value during the 18 months since Dr. Bea implemented this process.

Dr. Carson has taken the best aspects of Action Learning and blended them with the framework of the Balanced Scorecard. This technique reduces the time for initially populating a corporation's scorecard from 18 months to a matter of weeks, creating a strategic plan that is a living, usable document.

This double-barreled approach makes the process a consistently productive enrichment that really works, instead of a grueling annual chore that often misses the mark.

Praised by both executives and all levels of employees, Dr. Bea's as an Action Learning Coach reaches, clarifies, and bridges the gaps, creating cohesive enthusiastic direction and goals throughout the spectrum of any organization.

"Dr. Carson is a dedicated and talented facilitator. She is genuinely enthusiastic about Action Learning and its effectiveness in bringing teams to consensus, especially on multi-level, challenging real-work problems."
