7 THE NEGATIVE SIDE OF POLITICS Unwritten, illusive cultural rules underpin politics Culture stipulates how business is done Who is in and who is out; who is aligned with whom Under the radar of awareness © Don Morris PO Box 161 Cotton Tree 4558
8 ORGANISATIONAL PERSONALITIES Personality patterns reflect culture and common organisational drivers Organisational personality patterns arise as defensive adaptations and compensations to occupational stressors © Don Morris PO Box 161 Cotton Tree 4558
9 EXAMPLES OF ORGANISATIONAL PERSONALITY TYPES Career Obsessive Personality – obsession with ambition, status and promotion Positional Personality – presumption of the pre-eminence of level and position Administrative Personality – obsession with administrative details, rigid imposition of process © Don Morris PO Box 161 Cotton Tree 4558
10 Negative Psychological Patterns Anti-social; Narcissistic; Borderline; Paranoid; Obsessive-Compulsive; Passive-Aggressive; Histrionic Self-investment Narcissistic ego drives; Excessive self-assertion; Grandiosity; Immature emotions; Loss of broader perspective Control Unreasonableness; Rigidity; Absence of accountability; Coercion via aggression and passive-aggression; Bullying PATHOLOGICAL TRAITS © Don Morris PO Box 161 Cotton Tree 4558
11 OVERALL EFFECTS OF THE NEGATIVE PARADIGM Diminish leadership, professionalism, EQ Increase occupational stress and decrease morale, job satisfaction and commitment Predisposes organisation silence and negative workplace behaviours Create the illusion that all is okay and normal © Don Morris PO Box 161 Cotton Tree 4558
12 RESPONSE The solution needs to be multi-faceted. It is not about bad people or the high moral ground. Dichotomous perspectives such as perpetrator – victim, and triangulated perpetrator – victim – rescuer orientations are unhelpful. The solution lies in a balance and blend of I and we. We are they! The solution begins with us! © Don Morris PO Box 161 Cotton Tree 4558
