(3) Dr. Samuel Culbert, Ph.D.
Award-winning author and professor at UCLA’s Anderson School of Management Dr. Samuel Culbert, Ph.D., joins the show in the third hour to discuss his latest book, Good People, Bad Managers – How Work Culture Corrupts Good Intentions.
A recent Gallup Poll shows shows four out of five people believe that those in management cannot manage effectively. A get-ahead attitude is endemic to the way people in management are conditioned to think and it makes bad management prevalent — even among good people with good intentions.
Why is bad management so prevalent, and how does America’s business culture lead to poor management practices?
- Makes a powerful case that modern organizational culture ends up twisting good intentions into bad management behavior.
- Argues that the problem starts at the beginning, with the lessons managers learn out of necessity moving up, and with MBA programs that teach “success” skills rather than crucial management skills.
- Offers practical advice for effecting change by showing organizations how they can remove the obstacles in the path of managers.
- Outlines five prevailing assumptions that companies need to put under the microscope, and five mindsets that companies need to develop to radically change their organizational structure.
Dr. Samuel Culbert will discuss managers’ misguided mindset and some steps to take to bring about change, including:
- What prevents good management
- Why managers are made to feel constantly on guard
- How to eliminate the motive for deception and obfuscation
- How to revamp managerial relationships to make accountability two-sided
- What game-changing practices can transform harmful behaviors.
