If you are usually burnt out by Friday, or sometimes feel you can’t do any more despite the ever-growing demands on your time, then you’re not alone.
Most of us would like to be more productive, but the usual route of putting in longer and longer hours is backfiring, with people ending up exhausted, disengaged and sick.
· It is possible for you and your staff to be more productive
· Energy is the key, and can be tackled on three different levels – physical, emotional and mental
· Managing energy should not be a short-term fix – position it as a long-term investment in your people and the organisation
Face-to-face action learning is well documented, but virtual action learning (VAL) appears under-used, despite its ability to bring together geographically dispersed individuals.

Points to note
· Virtual action learning seems underused
· A six-form model illustrates the technologies and their use
· Each form tends to be used alongside another form (face to face is still vital)
· As the technologies become more sophisticated, so the opportunities for learning increase
