"The Power of Collaborative Leadership helps business leaders realize the promise of organizational learning by sharing the lessons, insights and best practices gained by Bert Frydman and Iva Wilson, two veteran managers and organizational learning pioneers. Together with JoAnne Wyer, a professional learning analyst, they show that in order to be effective leaders of business organizations, we must transform an organization's methods of absorbing new information and its ability to transform it into knowledge and wisdom. This book offers some provocative and practical ways to overcome many commonly held assumptions and practices that can actually impede learning and the improvement of the organization.".
"Written in a conversational style that invites the reader to participate in the process, The Power of Collaborative Leadership follows the two stories of Wilson and Frydman while also looking to other corporate leaders and their experience to demonstrate a variety of organizational learning situations. Along the way, the learning process is drawn out and enriched by the insight of Wyer – who takes the reader from the theoretical to the practical in an accessible and useful fashion. Any reader whose organization is embracing organizational learning will find this innovative and perceptive book compelling.".
"This book includes frank discussions and debates written in practical business language, uses the metaphor of the journey to emphasize key points along the way, bridges the gap from the theory to the practice of organizational learning from a practitioner's point of view, addresses the skeptics of organizational learning, and demystifies OL principles."–BOOK JACKET.
