The use and misuse of power and unethical behaviour
A high-performing company with strong competitive advantage is only as good as the sum of its parts. Crucial to this are the dynamics between senior management, middle management, and employees. Until now, research has tended to lump together the actions and attitudes of a given member of an organisation, not allowing for the extent to which an individual’s behaviour can change over time. A closer look at decision-making by high-power managers and counterproductive behaviour by employees sheds new light on the matter.
