Abstrakty
Artykuł przedstawia przypadek ilustrujący zachowania pracownicze w posttotalitarnej organizacji, jaką jest duża szkoła średnia. Czerpie z dorobku nauk politycznych badających reżimy totalitarne oraz z założeń podejścia systemowo-psychodynamicznego; odwołuje się do koncepcji narcyzmu oraz organizacji w umyśle, a także do takich pojęć, jak role, zadania i granice organizacyjne. Autor dowodzi, że lider-tyran, ze względu na swoje narcystyczne potrzeby, nadmiernie utożsamia się z organizacją, czyniąc to do takiego stopnia, że jego własne potrzeby zlewają się z potrzebami organizacji. Takie podejście przejmują podwładni, tworząc swoje wersje organizacji w umyśle, ze specyficznym jednak dodatkiem: ponieważ tyran i organizacja stały się synonimami, pracownicy tworzą manifestację organizacji jako tyrana w swoich własnych umysłach. Staje się to źródłem nieświadomych założeń, które kształtują zachowania organizacyjne, co w konsekwencji prowadzi do eskalacji konfliktów i spadku efektywności całej organizacji. W artykule omawiane są konsekwencje takiej sytuacji dla liderów wchodzących do posttotalitarnych organizacji oraz dyskutowane są możliwe działania interwencyjne.(abstrakt oryginalny)
EN
This paper is an extended single case study exploring worker behaviour in a post-totalitarian organisation - a large secondary school. It uses theoretical contributions from political science exploring totalitarian regimes and from systems-psychodynamics, specifically ideas of narcissism and the concept of the-organisation-in-the-mind, as well as the concepts of role, task and boundary. It proposes that due to narcissistic needs, a tyrannical leader over-identified with his/her organisation to the extent that his/her own ego needs were merged with organisational needs. This was then taken in by the followers as their version of the organisation-in-the-mind, but with a specific addition: because the tyrant and the organisation are synonymous, they took in an organisational manifestation of the tyrant - the tyrant in the mind. This became the unconscious predicate shaping subsequent organisational behaviour, leading to increased conflict and ineffectiveness. Implications for leaders entering a post-totalitarian organisation and the nature of interventions are discussed, as are further lines of enquiry.(original abstract)
