Destructive Achiever: Power & Ethics in the American Corporation
Charles M. Kelly (au). “Destructive Achievers” are managers who sacrifice ethics to efficiency & personal success. They are far more successful at projecting an image of power & authority to top management than in communicating integrity & commitment to their peers & subordinates. Kelly analyzes the unintended negative consequences of common management practices such as Performance Appraisal & Management-by-Objectives. Managers are focused on short-term results & their own personal power instead of on organizational effectiveness & the benefit of the group. We should begin to substitute group problem-solving & supportive confrontation for the power politics that increasingly constitutes business-as-usual in today’s organization.
