This book explores an aspect of organizational life that is at times difficult to ackwledge and often painful to recall. Stories invite reflection and the development of greater understanding of organizational dynamics. This fresh scholarship provides a theoretical framework for discussion. Throughout this book, Allcorn and Steinutilize a psychoanalytically informed perspective to help readers understand why a leader, colleague, or friend behaves in ways that are destructive to others and the organization and provide a basis for organizations to survive and thrive in a dysfunctional workplace.
