PARTNERING IS THE FOUNDATION OF A LEARNING ORGANIZATION

A simple model of an implementation strategy for cultivating a Learning Organization culture is "Transformational Leadership + Group Process = Learning Organization." This article presents the four key dimensions of partnering, the Partnering Effectiveness Model, and Principles of Productive Partnering as the basis, or foundation, for following this implementation strategy. Honoring the structure and operating principles of this scientific understanding of partnering creates a cultural orientation that fosters individual and team learning. Many organizations and their leaders are well intended, yet lack an understanding of the unconscious beliefs, behaviors, and cultural influences that impede learning. Using the implementation process presented, this paper takes a step-by-step approach to systematically exploring what is actually going on now, and how things need to be. Then, recognizing the need for developing new skills and change processes, it uses a straightforward approach to execute an improvement plan that ensures success.
