Pillars of the Five Disciplines

Senge's five disciplines would not be well understood without considering the following critical pillars: values, guiding principles, personal experience, commitment and context.

The Sixth Discipline

In my experience (from many workplaces), I have drawn the conclusion that the most important discipline of them all, the sixth discipline, is a particular set of personal qualities of leaders in an organization, difficult to catch with a description but evident for those who are observant enough to notice them.
A leading person (in a learning organization) must have something extra which is not included in principles and strategies: the personal intuition, cleverness and decisiveness, something which coordinates, integrates, creates.
We can see how a firm will deteriorate if it suddenly gets a leader who is too exuberant, narcissistic and unwilling to listen to others. This is of course in accordance with Peter Senge's theory.
But I should like to add that it makes a big difference if the leader has a 6. certain personal charisma. Not easy to describe, but obvious to those who have experience of different personalities in their work and private life.
