Background

The hypotheses that form this guidebook are two. The first is that individuals who use a greater variety of tactics will be better learners. Maxine Dalton and Silvia Swigert found that individuals who report using all of the tactics more than the average are also more likely to report engaging in challenging opportunities and seeking and using feedback. The second hypothesis is that individuals who are better learners will become better managers. This hypothesis is under investigation and there is ample qualitative evidence to support it, for example, the work by McCall, Lombardo, and Morrison that resulted in the book, The Lessons of Experience (Lexington Books, 1988).

The tactics themselves represent the work of a number of learning theorists, for example, action learning (Reg Revans), cognitive rehearsal (Donald Meichenbaum), social learning and learning from direct experience (Albert Bandura). The work on the feeling tactics was informed by the neoanalytic work of Karen Horney.
