Of recent interest in the field of Human Resource Development (HRD)/Adult Education is the development of professional competence and learning within organisations. The paper reports on preliminary findings of an investigation of what Adult Educators/HRD practitioners perceive are the characteristics which relate to their effective performance. The research has the potential to contribute to workplace effectiveness and efficiency and also to give tertiary institutions better direction in terms of program refinement and offerings in adult education and human resource development.
