520 |a In Learning as a Way of Being, Vaill offers a thoughtful critique of the roots of management education and argues that, if managers are to navigate the waters skillfully, institutions of "higher learning" must, above all, teach managers how to integrate the discipline of learning into their very being. Such learning must be marked by strong self-direction, willingness to take risks, and integration of the learning that life teaches outside the institution. Speaking to managers, executives, educators, and management development professionals alike, Vaill explores the impacts of learning as a way of being on current issues in management - including systems thinking, leadership, culture, and spirituality - and posits that managers who embrace such learning are the only ones who create a true learning organization.
