Good People, Bad Managers

How Work Culture Corrupts Good Intentions

Samuel A. Culbert

  • Makes a powerful case that modern organizational culture ends up twisting good intentions into bad management behavior.
  • Argues that the problem starts at the beginning, with the lessons managers learn out of necessity moving up, and with MBA programs that teach "success" skills rather than crucial management skills.
  • Offers practical advice for effecting change by showing organizations how they can remove the obstacles in the path of managers.
  • Outlines five prevailing assumptions that companies need to put under the microscope, and five mindsets that companies need to develop to radically change their organizational structure.
