What's the Secret to Successfully Implementing TL Principles in Corporate America?

Today's corporate leaders want their employees to be more innovative. To drive innovation many companies focus on resources, processes and concrete measures of business success. They even invest heavily in training to the tune of $164 billion a year on employee learning and development (ASTD, 2013). But, how a company sustains an ecosystem that allows it to thrive and move beyond delivering financial returns tends to get minimal focus. It is widely known in this community the theory of transformative learning involves transforming frames of reference through critical reflection of assumptions, validating contested beliefs through discourse, taking action on one’s reflective insight, and critically assessing it.

From a practitioner's lens, how have people in corporate America successfully implemented transformative learning principles in employee training and development programs and to help organizations sustain and boost successes, and foster innovation?
