Transformative Learning and First-Time Managers: How Can HRD Practitioners Help?
Roberts, Nella A.; Rocco, Tonette S.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Academy of Human Resource Development International Research Conference in the Americas (Panama City, FL, Feb 20-24, 2008)
The transition to management is one of the most difficult challenges first-time managers face--almost half fail. First-time managers may experience disorienting dilemmas that trigger transformative learning. HRD (human resource development) practitioners can assist in reducing the failure rate of first-time managers when they better understand the challenges first-time managers face and support them more effectively.
