Jean-Francois Manzoni, Jean-Louis Barsoux:
The Set-Up-To-Fail Syndrome: How Good Managers Cause Great People to Fail - hardcover

ISBN: 0875849490

[SR: 119461], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780875849492], Harvard Business Review Press, Harvard Business Review Press, Book, [PU: Harvard Business Review Press], Harvard Business Review Press, Does this scenario sound familiar? An employee you manage slips up somehow: a missed deadline, a lost account, or a weak presentation. You decide to oversee that person's work more closely. After all, if your direct reports aren't delivering, it's your head that will roll. To further your frustration, the more you 'help', the worse the employee's performance becomes. What's going on? In this eye-opening book, leadership experts Jean-Francois Manzoni and Jean-Louis Barsoux expose a disturbing and surprisingly rampant phenomenon. While common wisdom assumes that so-called poor performers fail in spite of their boss' best efforts, this book demonstrates exactly the opposite. In many cases, a boss' attitudes and behaviors actually cause or 'set up' certain individuals - including those with great potential - to fail. Based on ten years of study into boss-subordinate relationships, Manzoni and Barsoux show that this Set-Up-to-Fail Syndrome is not confined to relationships with the proverbial 'boss from hell'. Even respected leaders - whether CEOs, teachers, or coaches - get caught up in it. The problem stems from the fact that while most managers empower and encourage star performers, they tend to micromanage and control perceived 'weaker' performers in ways that stifle self-confidence and drive. The unwitting result: the latter group lives down to expectations, rather than living up to its true potential. The cost of the Syndrome, say Manzoni and Barsoux, goes well beyond the lost productivity of a few individuals. It also threatens to derail careers, takes a heavy toll on morale, and hampers overall organizational results. Through dozens of interviews, illustrative stories, and compelling research, they show how readers can: determine whether they are involved in a set-up-to-fail dynamic, Recognize the mental biases that cause bosses to trigger the cycle; understand how subordinates contribute to fueling the problem; take specific steps to interrupt the cycle through proactive interventions; and, prevent the Syndrome altogether by managing relationships differently. For anyone with influence on an individual's potential, this book offers powerful ways to improve performance - and quality of life - in any organizational setting. Jean-Francois Manzoni is Associate Professor of Management and founding director of the research initiative on High Performance Organizations at INSEAD in Fontainebleau, France. Jean-Louis Barsoux is a Senior Research Fellow at INSEAD. , The Set-Up-to-Fail Syndrome, by Jean-Francois Manzoni and Jean-Louis Barsoux, looks into the negative dynamics that unintentionally but unequivocally define far too many relationships between bosses and the people who report to them. More importantly, it also proposes ways to attack the problem where it exists and to keep it from occurring elsewhere. Manzoni and Barsoux, researchers at INSEAD in Fontainebleau, France, first addressed the issue in a 1998 Harvard Business Review article examining how "bosses unwittingly set up some of their subordinates to fail and, more generally, mismanage many of the subordinates they regard as acceptable but lower-than-average performers." After discussing the various causes and effects of this behavior--including why responses from both sides tend to generate "an escalating spiral of malaise and underperformance"--the authors present assorted remedies (such as "the mental adjustments bosses must make before trying to interrupt" this conduct), a framework for interventions (with details, for example, on handling discussions between two parties whose rapport has deteriorated), and a litany of preventive measures (including specific suggestions for getting new relationships off to a positive start). Very well researched with solid, practical advice. --Howard Rothman, 2675, Management & Leadership, 2735, Business Ethics, 2678, Consolidation & Merger, 10020709011, Corporate Governance, 2679, Decision-Making & Problem Solving, 16244401, Distribution & Warehouse Management, 2680, Industrial, 2648, Information Management, 2682, Leadership, 2683, Management, 2684, Management Science, 10020710011, Mentoring & Coaching, 2685, Motivational, 2686, Negotiating, 2689, Planning & Forecasting, 2690, Pricing, 2691, Production & Operations, 271578011, Project Management, 10020711011, Quality Control & Management, 2553, Strategy & Competition, 2694, Systems & Planning, 2697, Training, 3, Business & Money, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 2745, Entrepreneurship, 2741, Small Business & Entrepreneurship, 3, Business & Money, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 2637, Human Resources & Personnel Management, 10020683011, Human Resources, 3, Business & Money, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books
