The purpose of this paper is to explore leadership as a significant role in the organizational learning process. It will also recognize it as a potential communication barrier to the effectiveness of learning. Organizational Learning Theory will be explored, along with leadership and its role in communication, to get a foundation of previous literature. The current crisis at Penn state will be used as a case study for theory application. Finally, results of the observed content and its implications will be discussed.
