Executive Development Through Consciousness-Raising Experiences.

  • Academic Journal
  • Academy of Management Learning & Education; Jun2008, Vol. 7 Issue 2, p173-188, 16p
  • I describe the design and use of various "consciousness-raising" experiences in several corporate development programs and report my firsthand observations and reflections from executives who participated in these programs. The beginning makes the case for consciousness raising for business leaders and then documents the impact of such experiences on executive's self-awareness, understanding of others, dealings with diversity, and engagement with the larger world. Special attention is given to how service experiences can help to connect individuals and their companies to issues and interests in society, while the conclusion presents ideas and choices in creating consciousness-raising experiences aimed at executive development.
