by Lucy Madsen Guglielmino, Paul J. Guglielmino
International Journal of Human Resources Development and Management (IJHRDM), Vol. 8, No. 4, 2008

Abstract: Following a review of studies linking the readiness for self-directed learning to workplace performance, the attainment of leadership positions in organisations and the characteristics sought after in today's business leaders, the authors present the implications for Human Resource Management (HRM). They assert that individual self-directed learners are the lifeblood of the learning organisation and offer five guidelines for creating a culture of learning to firmly integrate self-directed learning into an organisation.
