Dr. Reldan (Relly) Nadler selected as Keynote Speaker

Action learning is a proven method of generating breakthrough solutions and strategies. But did you know that action learning is useful in producing healthy organizational cultures? In this year’s annual forum of The World Institute for Action Learning-USA (WIAL-USA) our theme is: Energizing Engagement through Action Learning.


We are excited to showcase three highly acclaimed professionals in the worlds of action learning and leader and organizational development: Dr. Reldan (Relly) Nadler, Dr. Bea Carson, and Dr. Michael Marquardt.


Dr. Nadler is the author of many books on leadership and team performance. He is a Master Certified Executive Coach (MCC) who has coached and helped thousands of leaders and is a senior faculty member of The College of Executive Coaching, one of the oldest coaching schools. Relly has spent many years in the world of experiential learning and is an expert in applying emotional intelligence tools to business objectives and leadership development.


Dr. Carson is the President of WIAL and is a Master Action Learning Coach (MALC). She has  extensive experience in teaching and training the WIAL method of action learning. Her insights and rich narratives offer learners the very best tapestry of knowledge and it is her vision that fuels the growth of WIAL-USA.



Dr. Marquardt is instrumental in developing the WIAL method of action learning. He has written many books on action learning and is one of the world’s foremost and proficient practitioners. Until recently, Dr. Marquardt was the Director of Human Resources for American University. It could be argued that Michael is the most competent professional in the arena of action learning.


In addition to our notable celebrities, we will have other presenters offering topics that will challenge your current mental models and may give you new tools to take back home.


Plan now to join us on October 22, 2018 in the Seattle area! We are making the cost such a great value—you simply cannot afford to miss this event. More details and information will be available in the coming days and weeks.


I look forward to seeing you!
