About Action Cycle Learning

Understanding the Why & How


At Action Cycle Learning we help people get improved outcomes by understanding themselves and the people around them better.

Why? Most problems come from unmet, unrealistic, expectations. A better understanding of ourselves and others makes life easier in business or private life.

We have two areas of focus:

1. Helping people create Lifestyle Businesses. Businesses that they love even if financially they don't have to.

Most people spend more than 50% of their time at work. Why would you want to waste half your life doing something you don't like?

2. Creating engaged teams. World wide statistics suggest that the engagement level of most organisation's teams is under 15%. This means you are only getting 6 hours of engagement in a 40 hour week. They might be physically there but not much is happening.

Engagement levels exceeding 70% are achievable with better paradigms and tools


An essential element in what we do can be found in understanding and applying the principles contained in the Action Cycle Learning model.

The Action Cycle Learning model explains the Why and How of taking action from the mundane of making lunch to deciding on a life-changing event.

Leonard-WhittakerMy Life's passion is to enhance understanding for myself and those | associate with. I believe that through enhanced understanding human beings can achieve better outcomes for themselves, the people they live and work with, and their organisations.

My business, Action Cycle Learning was established to provide a framework to enable consultation with individuals and organisations on the subject of improving outcomes for people and their

In an effort to better understand human endeavour I developed the “Action Cycle Learning" model. This model helps to explain how to get superior outcomes through increased awareness of the “why and the way” human beings get things done.

My qualifications include an Associate Diploma in Human Resource Development from Griffith University (1994). I also have a Diploma of Financial Services (2004) and have been accredited in a number of well know courses and workshops including Covey's 7 Habits for Highly Effective People, Wilson Learning's Versatile Salesperson, Counsellor Selling, and Innovator programs and as a Kolbe Interpreter.  To see my Kolbe Profile go to:

I have also personally developed the “Coaching the Buyer” program with Kathy McCahon from Simple Business Solutions, a unique "Life Planning" workshop, a "Financial Life Planning" presentation and a number of uniquely tailored programs.

I remain committed to lifelong learning.

I help people get better outcomes by understanding themselves and the people around them better. My focus is on helping people create Lifestyle Businesses. Businesses that they love to do even if financially they don't have to.

Some of Our Services

Like the strands in the rope each of the individual services can combine to create a stronger whole

Strands of wire


Personal Development

It has long been suggested that the place to start changing the world is to start with your own back yard and that the largest room in your house is the house is the room for self improvement. Personal development begins with a focus on better understanding yourself.

Self awareness is the key to understanding why you do what you do, why some things are easy and others hard.

We work to help our clients better understand themselves so that it is easier to make the changes and improvements they desire.

This service is primarily delivered individually in a coaching, mentoring format supplemented with small group sessions when applicable.


Management - Team Development

Management and Team Development are skills rarely invested in by organisations and when invested usually at the “cheapest price”. Most organisations rely on the “natural skills” of their people and wonder why they continue to have the same problems.

The key to better management is an understanding that teams are just individuals with common objectives. Unfortunately sometimes there are also groups of individuals with conflicting objectives.

Our approach to better management and team development is to start with an enhancing understanding of the individuals then to move on to an alignment of objectives.

This service is delivered through a combination of individual coaching and team exercise with a variety of coaches and facilitators


Sales Training

Sales training is usually provided to people whose job is to convert prospects to clients.

Unfortunately most Sales training programs focus on technique and process without an understanding of how people naturally buy. People love to buy but hate being sold.

Our approach is that by better understanding the way people buy we are more able to help them do what they love ie Buy things that meet their needs and wants.

“Coaching the Buyer" is a model that takes the stress out of selling for the buyer and seller. Based on well proven and documented research and observations going back to the late 1930's Coaching the Buyer can improve outcomes for all organisations and individuals.



Finding more of the “right” clients is the goal of virtually all organisations. Marketing is simply the presentation of your products and services in a way that attracts the right types of ospes. The internet has changed and made more complex the many ways prospects have to find us and what we do. A better understanding of how and why people buy helps to improve all our marketing efforts.

We work with individuals and organisations to enhance their understanding of the way people buy. Working in conjunction with marketing platform providers we are able to assist in bringing more of the right prospects to your organisation through:

                1. Clarifying and making succinct messages and stories that attract personally and as a business.
                2. Maximising Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
                3. Ensuring consistency and ease of maintenance of Social Media Platforms
                4. Structuring and optimising Centres of Influence and referral sources.

Customer Presentations and Workshops

Customer presentations can be difficult. It is often challenging to communicate with clients without them becoming bored and immune to the messages you want to deliver.

If you are looking for someone to assist you to put together a client presentation or event give us a call. We have many years of experience in this area and may already have a presentation or presenter's available that can easily and inexpensively be modified to suit your needs




Process Improvement

Process improvement is usually centred around flow charts, diagrams, graphs and the numbers. Our approach is to focus around the people. We often find that results can be improved dramatically by modifying a sensible process to cater for the uniqueness of the individuals who are responsible for driving it. A logical approach is not always the best approach.
