Hi! For my book, I would like to gather a set of beliefs that govern how people operate in organizations. I’m especially looking for beliefs that really drive people’s behavior, decision-making, etc. Contradictions and alternate viewpoints welcome and encouraged. For example:
- Never help out a colleague too much, because they’re just competition for the top spot.
- Always help your colleagues, because when we work together, we accomplish more than when we work alone.
- Our competitors will never be able to produce a product as good as ours.
- Management is stupid and doesn’t know what they’re doing.
I will be using these in my book. By submitting them here, you give me permission to do so. I would like to list everyone who contributes in the acknowledgements section. If you wish to be acknowledged, just sign your comment with your desired name (first name, full name, etc.).
