Leaders Learning from Leaders as an Emergent Action Learning Strategy Type of Paper: Account of Practice
Mullen, Carol A.; Rodríguez, Mariela A.; Allen, Tawannah G.
Action Learning: Research and Practice, v12 n3 p344-355 2015
This account of practice describes what three executive leaders in a professional association have learned about action learning and their own practices of organizational renewal. Data are approached narratively and stories are told from the perspectives of diverse educators' experiences, agency, and expertise. Mature organizations can be revitalized and diversified through the action learning of executive leaders who integrate a new and diverse faculty body into the governance structure and decision-making process. The goal of facilitating diversity goals for established organizations has relevance for universities, schools, businesses, and other learning environments. Public conversations can strengthen the diversity-oriented outreach missions of professional organizations.
