"Design of transfor- mational executive programs"

This working paper describes the design of transformational executive programs. To understand what happens in the transformational process, three triangular conceptual frameworks (taken from short-term dynamic psychotherapy) are presented. Five major challenges in program design are also examined: the criteria for selecting participants; identifying the focal problem on which participants need to work; the creation of a safe transitional space that enables the change process; how to use the group dynamic to arrive at internalization of the change process; and the educational implications for faculty, facilitators, and coaches.
