Organisational Learning and Leadership: On Metaphor, Meaning Making, Liminality and Intercultural Communication
Patterson, Jean A.
International Journal of Learning and Change, v3 n4 p382-393 2009
This article discusses sensemaking as a broad framework for understanding organisational learning and its implications for leadership in a global context. Organisational metaphors, the concept of liminality and understanding organisations as interpretation systems are presented as possibilities for enhancing intercultural communication within organisations. The article concludes by identifying challenges and how to overcome them, and raises questions for future dialogue and action.
