How Organizations Get Weird
- Dysfunctional individuals are hired.
- They gain influence and power within the organization.
- They attract, hire, and promote people similar to themselves.
- Those people do the same.
- Eventually, normal people leave or are driven off. Anyone remaining adjusts to the new arrangement.
- The organization itself is altered and its practices foster and nurture dysfunctional people.
- All of the above can happen in a surprisingly short amount of time.
