Example text

It's about how individual workers, an organization's leaders, and entire organizations can self-destruct in the face of excessive demands for adaptation, and how distressed individuals and organizations can regain their health. I have struggled for three decades to define the laws and principles that govern the rise and fall of organizations and their leaders, and the laws and principles that govern the relationships between people and the environments in which they work. Many of these concepts have revealed themselves slowly, and it seems that they operate predictably in organizations of all sizes, settings, and purposes.

We will explore in the coming pages how organizations are born and how they grow, create new organizations, decay, renew themselves, die, and occasionally rise from the dead to thrive again. We will look at how organizations in these cycles of decay and renewal have the power to do harmto themselves, to their leaders, to those who work in them, and to the public. And we will become familiar with a story of hopea story of organizational and personal resilience, a story of how severely distressed organizations have recaptured their health, and how workers have survived in, escaped from, or helped to transform toxic organizational systems.

1 The Authoritarian-Moral Approach: Professional Distress As Bad Character The authoritarian-moral approach to professional distress reflects what Douglas McGregor called the "theory X" philosophy of management. Theory X is based on the assumption that most people dislike work, lack ambition, are essentially passive, avoid responsibility, resist change, and are self-centered and unconcerned with the needs of the organization. The role of the manager is thus to direct, motivate, manipulate, persuade, control, reward, and punish the worker to effectively respond to the needs of the organization (McGregor 1967, 1973).
