Using examples from companies such as General Electric, IBM, Kodak, and ABB, Leading the Learning Organization integrates the latest advances in strategic change, managerial leadership, continuous improvement, and learning and development. Belasen provides insightful and provocative views of how high-performance leaders use organizational learning to achieve breakthrough performance. He strongly argues that managers who avoid questioning their operating premises today will find themselves without market share tomorrow. Leading the Learning Organization is an insightful examination of a variety of modern corporate issues, including adjusting to the marketplace; linking the value chain; living with corporate downsizing; leading self-managed teams; communicating, learning, and developing competencies; managing the value-based organization; and initiating transformational learning.

"In order to maintain competitive advantage in rapidly growing markets, today's business professionals must expect and effectively manage changing paradigms. Leading the Learning Organization equips readers with a plan to succeed through invaluable strategies and real-world examples." -- Robert Lento, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Convergys Corporation "Belasen outlines in great detail the cognitive and behavioral principles of communication-based high-performance leadership. This book is clearly written, interesting to read, and provides insights from more than one hundred organizations." -- Branislav Kovacic, editor of New Approaches to Organizational Communication "Leading the Learning Organization, while written with a broad audience in mind, has exceptional relevance for the healthcare industry. It is a valuable resource for leaders in healthcare organizations to help guide them through the tumultuous changes in our environment." -- Richard Boehler, M.D., Vice President for Medical Affairs, St. Peter's Hospital, Mercycare Corporation "Belasen provides a very comprehensive introduction to the various approaches and techniques that have been used to reinvigorate organizations.
