Today’s organizations often face complex problems that do not have readily identifiable solutions. Leadership educators are called upon to implement innovative pedagogical practices to teach students to address such complex problems.

Practitioner and student reflections are offered as well as an analysis of student learning. Recommendations from these experiences offer ways to refine this pedagogical practice.
