9780062548740: The Addictive Organization: Why We Overwork, Cover up, Pick up the Pieces, Please the Boss, and Perpetuate Sick Organizations

This book shows how managers, workers and organization members exhibit symptoms of addiction - denying and avoiding problems, assuming that there is no other way of behaving, manipulating events to maintain the status quo. They examine how organizations can become centres of denial, confusion, overwork, covering up and picking up the pieces to please the boss.
