    Abstract

    This paper describes the consequences of a cognitive management development program for middle managers in a public organization. The objective was to teach transformational leadership and teamwork but it occasioned a very limited improved articulation of transformational leadership and teamwork and only a modest change in the managers' actions in the workplace. Meanwhile, the simultaneous implementation of teamwork in the organization also invoked action and situated learning methods. Theses are recommended above cognitive learning.
