Technique 4.1 Questions Around Organisational Relationships

{product-noshow 30|name|cart|picture|link|border|menuid:206|pricedis3|pricetax1}

In trying to understand organisational relationships, the following questions are helpful

1. How much emotionality is appropriate? Should the relationship be

- very aloof and professional as in a doctor-patient relationship, or

- very emotionally charged, as in a friendship

2. Should the relationship be

- very specific, dealing only with the exact reason for the relationship, such as in sales-customer relationship, or

- diffuse, as in most friendships?

3. Do the participants know each other

- in very general universalistic terms based on stereotypes, as in most sale relationships, or

- in a very particularistic way, as a whole person?

4. Are social rewards, such a status and rank, assigned on the basis of

- what the person is by birth or family membership - what is ascribed to him or her (mate-ocracy), or

- what the person has actually accomplished - his or her achievements (merit-ocracy)
