“Fifth Discipline” is a book authored by Peter Senge articulating five learning disciplines that are important in an organization. These disciplines include personal mastery, mental models, team learning, shared vision and systems thinking. Synergy of the learning disciplines exemplifies a learning organization that builds and continually learns. As a vital component in organizational process, learning disciplines highlight systems thinking (fifth discipline) in ascertaining holistic functioning of the different elements within an organization. For them to be achieved, leaders need to be equipped with various learning tasks, perspectives and strong dedication to uphold the organizational culture without compromising individual predicaments of its members. ________________________________________________________________________________________
