Title

Argyris's model II behavior: communication patterns, self-management, and team facilitation

Author

David M. Baca

Abstract

"This thesis presents three articles related to team training based on Argyris and Schn̲'s Theory of Action perspective. Individuals are often unaware of the differences between their 'espoused theory' (what they say they do) and their "theory-in-use" (what they actually do). Almost universally, people hold the Unilateral Action Model (also called Model I) as their theory-in-use. Action created according to this model limits learning, creates self-sealing processes, and leads to defensive reasoning. The Mutual Learning Model is an alternative that promotes double-loop learning, decreases skilled incompetence, and guide effective communication"--Abstract, leaf iv.
