in a recent class discussion on leadership in organizations an interesting
theory came up: There really is not any such thing as participative
management in organizations because for every manager that lets his group
provide feedback there is a front line supervisor that is "hardnosed" and
barks the orders of the managers without active feedback from the group.
In other words participative management is something that is simply an
attempt to keep employees happy. What do you think?
