Democracy vs. Dictatorship in the Workplace

Are You a Totalitarian Dictator at Work? “Metamorphic” is my description of Chris Argyris’s discussion at Harvard. Chris had an exceptional power to act by holding a mirror and showing his pupil that they were not as courteous as they believed to be. Chris found that people who run organisations function in harmony with one of two patterns: totalitarian dictatorship or collective development. People who run organisations and rule through totalitarian dictatorship presume that they are always correct, and people who hold different opinions are incorrect; collective developers presume that different opinions could be correct and worth delving into. Chris identified that all people who run organisations he studied functioned in harmony with the totalitarian dictatorship method. It took severe rearranging and ability training to change to the collective development method. By all means, we were not ... Read more

Why India’s Tortoise May Beat China’s Hare

Intense attention is focused on India’s strengthening economic prospects. With good reason: in 2014, India’s GDP growth rate in real terms matched China’s, which is in decline, perhaps not only cyclically but secularly. Moreover, for 2015 and 2016, the International Monetary Fund forecasts India’s growth actually will substantially exceed China’s. As I argue in “Why India’s Tortoise May Beat China’s Hare,” my latest monthly column in Forbes, India will not overtake the size of the Chinese economy, the ‘second largest’ in the world, anytime soon. However, there are good reasons to believe – many of which are not often examined in ... Read more
