Chapter 15 Improving leader judgment through experiential learning
Restricted access

We outline an approach to learning judgment and leadership based on experiential learning theory and the learning cycle. Based primarily on the management and organizational literature, four factors are important to consider in how leadership judgment is learned: attention to problem structure, procedural knowledge, the role of emotions, and use of evidence to support judgments. We offer a model of learning judgment that involves a four-phase process consisting of understanding context, acquiring relevant knowledge, applying knowledge, and evaluating knowledge. This model can support disciplinary and multidisciplinary learning of judgment and leadership.
