Summary This paper reports on the process of engagement in development and delivery of a self-directed adult learning program to develop leadership practice for mid level managers in a professional services agency. In 2002, RMIT University and a major government department engaged in an initiative to develop leadership practice for a small mixed group of scientist, policy and support function mid level managers. The focus for engagement was an industry based Graduate Certificate Leadership program built around Emotional Intelligence (EI) and EI Leadership constructs. The nature of the engagement was at two levels. The first level was at the inter-organizational level, developing relationship trust (Vangen and Huxham, 2003) and developing an effective learning and development intervention to build leadership capability, (Cacioppe, 1998). The second level of engagement was at the intra-organizational level, where facilitator and participant collaborated on learning and development needs in an ambiguous and complex organizational setting, (Huxham and Vangen, 2004; 2000).
