Charlotte Roberts  

Expert On Learning Organizations and Co-Author of The Fifth Discipline Fieldbook

Dr. Charlotte Roberts is an executive consultant, speaker and writer who focuses on organizations' sustainability and competitiveness. She is co-author of two cutting-edge leadership books with her colleagues Peter Senge, Art Kleiner, Rick Ross, Bryan Smith and George Roth. The Fifth Discipline Fieldbook: Strategies and Tools for Building a Learning Organization is a practical guidebook used for creating an enduring competitive advantage; over a million copies have been sold worldwide. Their second Fieldbook, The Dance of Change: The Challenges of Sustaining Momentum in Learning Organizations (1999) maps a pathway to sustaining system-wide change beyond the leadership team's personal drive and commitment. In 2000, Schools That Learn was published for educators, parents and people who care about education.

As a speaking professional, Charlotte has served many roles. She has helped design conferences and served as emcee and theme weaver, a keynote speaker and workshop presenter.

Charlotte has been an organizational development consultant for over 15 years. Her clients have been in different industries from shipbuilding to computer software and hardware design to consumer products and pet nutrition to healthcare delivery. She works with her clients on strategy implementation and building high-performing leadership teams and learning organizations.

Dr. Roberts uses her hands-on experience and wealth of anecdotes in keynote speaking, training and writing to engage others in learning. Recognizing the power of distance learning as early as 1993, Charlotte has hosted nation-wide satellite broadcasts on leadership, managing people and building the learning capacity of organizations. She and Peter Senge led a satellite broadcast series in 1995-96. In 1998, she introduced the sixth discipline of leadership in a nation-wide broadcast "Conscious Oversight: The Sixth Discipline." This presentation is available in a training video being distributed by The Learning Consortium.

For three years, Dr. Roberts' column, "Managing People," was featured in a business journal in the Philadelphia area. Her articles, "Leading Total Quality" and "Can We Talk?" appeared in the Journal for Quality and Participation. Several of her articles were printed in the Nation's Cities Weekly in 2003-2004.
