CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Reflections on Groups and Organizations is the third and final book in the On
the Couch with Manfred Kets de Vries series.
Broadening the Kets De Vries canvas, this book examines concepts of
organizational health, performance, and change. Material ranges from studies of
high performance teams – based on time the author spent with the pygmies of
central Africa – to the study of organizational stars, to the use of coaching
interventions to improve personal and organizational functioning.
Kets de Vries looks at the interpersonal and group processes that determine
how organizations work within specific contexts, including family firms. He
studies dysfunctional leader-follower relationships, downsizing, and
organizational transformation. Kets de Vries also introduces his concept of the
"authentizotic" organization – a pleasant, healthy, well-functioning workplace.
