Plug into a dynamic leadership develop process custom made for today′s rapidly changing, technology–driven business environment. Unlike traditional classroom–style programs, Action Learning embroils "students" in emotionally intense, team–oriented experiences that directly address the immediate strategic needs of the organization. Here, authors Dotlich and Noel detail the many Action Learning sessions they′ve conducted at Shell, Ameritech, Citibank, and other leading corporations that have used Action Learning to quickly and successfully implement a variety of tactical and quantum change initiatives. Readers benefit from a clearly defined framework they can use to construct an Action Learning program of their own––a program that gives companies the power to recreate themselves by first recreating their leaders.
