Rope 6: The Sincerest Form of Flattery In this lesson, Stanley has a great deal of respect for his supervisor, Kerry Drake. After working for Kerry for an undisclosed amount of time, Stanley begins to imitate Kerry’s words and actions. Unfortunately, Stanley does not have the “rank or expertise” (Ritti & Levy, 2010, p. 39) to get the same results as Kerry. Because of this, Stanley earns the nickname ‘Little Kerry’, which was not a term of admiration. Bandura’s Social Learning Theory (Luthans, 2011) is applicable to this scenario. Social learning theory is based on a person’s ability or tendency to model their behavior based on what they learn from their surroundings. One of the key processes in social learning theory is modeling, which is exactly what Stanley did. Unfortunately, as Stanley demonstrated, the behavior of one successful person does not necessarily mean that any person can imitate the behavior with the same results. References:
