  4. 4. Chris Argyris <ul><li>It may surprise people, but I have found that we all have a strong propensity to hold inconsistent thoughts and actions, and that we aren’t very effective observers of our own behaviour: we tend to judge our behaviour by our intentions, while we judge other people’s behaviour by its outcomes (Argyris interview 2008). </li></ul><ul><li>The fantasy that somehow organizations can change without personal change, and especially without change on the part of people in leadership positions, underlies many change efforts doomed from the start… I think that if any one aspect of the radical core of Argyris and Schön’s work, it is this: that real organizational learning must include me (Senge, 2003, pp 47 – 48). </li></ul>

It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all - in which case, you fail by default” (June 5, 2008 http://harvardmagazine.com/go/jkrowling.html). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ I never trust anyone who has not fallen apart at least once” (Susan Sarandon). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ It is important that those learning leadership should have exposure failures and poor role models” (Lester Levy). </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Imposture </li></ul>
