5.0 Learn by doing

Learning by doing in CLD is about an ongoing adaptive cycle of regular planning, action, reflection and learning. Making time to pause and reflect together helps us build shared leadership, celebrate achievements, get new insights about how and what we are doing, plan next action steps and improve our mahi. Learning together can grow into more structured evaluation – both help us tell our story to others we want to influence in ways they can hear and value.

Start from where you are and consider these key questions when making time to pause and reflect together.
