Leading Learning Organizations


Building a learning organization involves the development of "systems thinkers" who commit to their own personal learning journeys and become collaborative partners on the journeys of those around them.


The Leading Learning Organization program analyzes the Five Disciplines of a Learning Organization (Personal Mastery, Mental Models, Shared Vision, Team Learning and Systems Thinking) to help participants better understand what it means to build and be part of a "Learning Organization."
