Receiving the Robert L. (Lex) Dilworth Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Executive Learning is a “true honour,” says Ira Cohen, a sessional lecturer in the Odette School of Business.
The award, bestowed by the Global Forum on Strategic Transformations, Leadership and Learning, honours individuals who have made a major contribution to executive and management education.
Dr. Cohen won recognition as a global thought leader in the field of Action Learning, a systematic process that solves business challenges and develops operational competencies among corporate management. He received the award during the invitation-only forum in Dubai, March 21.
“It is a true honour to be one of the few Canadians recognized as a major contributor in the field of executive and management education,” he said.
“Previous recipients of the Dilworth award have all established themselves as global agents of change in a variety of action learning settings. As a pioneer in the facilitation of Action Learning Outside-In interventions, I personally and humbly am appreciative of this peer-driven award.”
Other winners of the awards this year included Americans Brad Benson and Sharon Marshall, German Wolfgang Braun, and South African Brian Isaacson.
