Integration in Behaviour

This paper describes how anyone who takes part in an organisation shows how they integrate unconsciously in their behaviour, their own values, thoughts and assumptions about the purpose of that organisation. It shows how Consultant Leaders in education can raise the quality of their work with their clients by paying particular attention to those underlying factors, by using the conceptual tools of Aim Statements, ‘organisation-in-the-mind’, and the continuous process of finding, making and taking roles.
