Drama queen în afaceri / Organizaţiile misterioase

Sunt teme abordate de 2 articole peste care am dat astăzi şi care mi-au plăcut foarte mult:

1. „What motivates high achievers? Is it money, status or power? Perhaps it is none of these. Perhaps the strongest urge is simply the overwhelming desire to escape boredom.

Unquestionably, the executive suite embraces melodrama with more enthusiasm than any other activity. Making sales, hiring new staff, generating a profit are all very well – but what really excites the boardroom is corporate intrigue. After all, even in business, the key players are not robots but humans, impelled by emotions and irrational dreams of glory or revenge. Life in many ways is but a brief play, or possibly a tragedy, and most of us are acting some imagined role or another half the time anyway.

The actual stuff that makes most companies function is mundane: producing and delivering the goods every day, efficiently and at a decent margin, can be deadly dull. So the favourite form of escapism in most organisations is to conspire and manipulate with and against colleagues like the cast in some low-budget thriller. It is a tendency that is especially pronounced among the leadership class; after all, lots of them are exhibitionists with outsized egos and a thirst for the limelight.” mai departe citiţi în Financial Times aici

2. „So when we make the assumption that organizations can change, what we are really saying is that people can change. People can increase their knowledge, they can change the way they get work done, they can change the way they interact with others along with a host of other attributes. Our goal when we are attempting organizational change is to change the actions, the thoughts or beliefs of the people who reside within those organizations.  People can change the way an organization functions by changing the policies, practices and procedures that other members of the organizations follow, and it is people, organizational members who must take the initiative to create the change, for the organization itself is incapable of doing that. I am not splitting hairs here, for there is a critical distinction between those who are waiting for an organization to “act” vs. those who realize that it is the people within the organization that must “act”. Getting the people within the organization to realize that they must act is half the battle of organizational change.” Articolul îi aparţine lui Jeffrey Saltzman şi îl găsiţi aici.
