No organization is immune from the several dysfunctional behaviors that shape managerial decisions and negatively impact employee motivation. Left unchecked, these behaviors can lead to stagnation, divisive unrest or a loss of top talent to competitors.
“Management Diseases and Disorders: How to Identify and Treat Dysfunctional Managerial Behavior” consolidates 56 personality, system and culture-based dysfunctions that help organizational leaders recognize and make the changes that can greatly improve the company’s overall health and employee satisfaction.
“Management and leadership issues are just as significant as physical maladies,” authors Steven A. Danley and Peter Hughes, PhD, said. “It is imperative that we understand the diseases and disorders of management if we ever hope to heal and improve our organizational and personal health.”
Some of the more common problems the authors identified include management self-interest (over the company or employees), lack of courage, unethical behavior, and selecting unqualified leaders.
“Management Diseases and Disorders” provides the initial examination to formally recognize an unhealthy business condition and then identify, diagnose and suggest cures for these maladies.
