Internet The Organization Person
An Internet Class Case Consultations for Individuals Working in Organizations and Communities. Please contact Ellen firstname.lastname@example.org
In 1956 William H Whyte published his classic “The Organization Man”, dedicated to the people, who spend their life working and living within organizations. Today, many of us find ourselves being “an Organization Person”. This Internet Class coaches its participants to understand, get along and influence the organization they work in. It is essentially a case consultation class with prior reading assignments, which focuses on the relationship of the individual to the organization and the professional and personal development within the organizations. This class has the opposite focus of the vision, myth and bottom line class Where as in the myth vision class we focus on how organizations can change, and even individuals can perceive themselves as organizations and profit from Organizational Development concepts, this internet class focuses on how we as individuals can not only survive, but actually blossom within organizations. It's real title should be: The organization person: a handbook for guerilla survival techniques for individuals inside of organizations or when confronted with them. Team relationship issues, rank and hierarchy issues, organizational inertia, etc, in the context of case presentations that the participants contribute wil be the main focus in this class. Please sign up before Jan 1 2006 in order to get reading assignements.
