3 Management Types: Distracted, Passive or Toxic
N/A (Former Employee) – Massachusetts – April 3, 2018
The leadership team here has sadly become a IHI’s biggest problem. Each senior exec’s management style looks to me like one of these 3 types: distracted, passive or toxic. With a group made up of these types you can guess which personality type ends up driving the organization. Toxic. The distractedness and the passiveness of the rest of the leadership team has allowed the toxicity to eat away at the culture and functioning of the whole company.
Over the years one particular senior exec has grasped authority over many things where she has no experience or capacity. She also actively works against the culture that the organization preaches. Constant blaming, mocking company efforts on Joy in work, Equity and even the basic ideas of quality improvement that are supposed to be central. People working under her are discouraged from participating in company events on these topics, or even just taking lunch away from their desks. So it’s no surprise that there is almost 100% turnover in the departments she oversees (Finance & IT).
IT overhaul (100% turnover again) complete catastrophe resulting in wasted money, increasing inefficiency and huge frustration across the company. The more influence certain executives have over IHI, the more it loses its way. Nobody seems to care enough to stand up to them or take any action. Or could be they are afraid of wrath being directed against them too.
Many nice people, good benefits
