Abstract

A four-year action research approach was used to investigate the nature of the TLE in executive education and its relation to a learning space that can provide opportunities for transformative learning to occur. The theme emerged from conversations, interviews and work as a facilitator and academic responsible in a business school in Scandinavia. The project aimed at consolidating and enhancing the leader development programme (LDP) of an EMBA programme. It was within this organisation project that students explicitly referred to i) a lack of clarity in respect of throughlines within the modular masters programme that was causing frustration in their learning experience; and ii) the distinctive characteristics of the LDP learning space as being instrumental in its impact on their overall leader development and EMBA learning experience. Key words: : transformative learning, leader development, habit of mind, praxis, ‘inner’ teaching-learning environment, throughlines, congruence, action research, executive MBA.
