Organisational Learning and Leadership

Two examples that Team 3 gave in class were the very interesting. The example of 5 blindman trying to figure out what an elephant looks like was a very good way of showing how it is important to look at the entire picture. The blindman holding the trunk thought that the elephant looked like a carrot, the one holding the leg thought it looked liked a post box, the one holding the stomach thought it looked like a wall. If all the blindmen got the information together than they would have known what the elephant really looked like. Its very important to exchange information in an organisation. But one very important question raised in class was that how much information is right to exchange as sometimes employees can leak outr trade secrets for their personal gain

Another good example team 3 gave was about the football coach. How important it is for the leader to see the entire. This can be seen through the eyes of the leader. One important issue raised in class was why in some cultures men do not accept women leaders.
