Just read an article about research on learning and leadership I want to share:
“Exploring the Relationship between Learning and Leadership”
By Lillas M. Brown and Barry Z. Poser in Classic Readings in Organizational Behavior [Third Edition]. Beijing: Peking University Press, 2006, pp. 505-514.
The whole article very much resonates with what I write in The Tao of Business. A passage on p. 507 of the article for instance emphasizes the importance of leaders who are themselves actively and successfully on a path of personal growth and self-transformation for a learning organization. Such leaders are best equipped to set up a framework that inspires employees to actively engage in personal as well as organizational development and learning.
