Abstract

In this paper, we discuss the role faculty at business schools and universities have to support executives in transforming business for good. We suggest Action Learning Conversations (ALC) as a method to support executives in exploring the social poetics of striking moments from a reflexive stance. We illustrate how faculty can support executives in embarking on future-forming conversations that will lead to more humanizing, ethical, and sustainable ways of leading. We present our understanding of management learning processes as relational and reflexive processes situated within “real “ business situations, and discuss how we, as faculty, can create safe learning spaces where seeds for future-forming processes, transforming businesses for good, can be sown. Two empirical examples from a Danish MBA executive cohort are presented and discussed leading to a conclusion that sheds light on how ALC and social poetics can be used to explore striking moments and support reflexivity in business and management education.
