Andragogical elements [trust, empathy, sensitivity] actively expressed by facilitators/supervisors toward learners/supervisees/workers and fostering their reciprocation toward facilitators/supervisors, while being enhanced with organizational learning (OL) elements [experimentation, risk-taking, interaction with the external environment, dialogue, participative decisionmaking], strengthens job satisfaction and fosters learners’/supervisees’/workers’ desire to retain employment with their corporation -- thus reducing employment costs of new learners/supervisees/workers. Adding to these are leaders’ four (4) [management of attention through vision, meaning through communication, trust through positioning, and deploying positive self-regard focused concentration] strategies for taking charge which when applied with the andragogical elements and OL serve to strengthen and enhance corporate functioning and viability.
