Learning and development - coaching - executive & organisational coaching - transformational coaching.

Double-loop learning is a process of learning that goes beyond learning from the success or failure of reaching a goal (single-loop learning) to question the nature of the goal or its underlying assumptions.

It recognises that the failure to achieve a goal may be related to the nature of the goal or the decision-making rules that underpin it.

Double-loop learning is a relatively more reflective process of learning, and can have significant implications for the practices and policies of an organisation.

It is particularly appropriate for an evolving context in which the basis for a goal may have changed, requiring people to rethink their assumptions.

Double-loop learning is particularly associated with transformational approaches to coaching.
