In the article quotWho s to Blame for Creating a Toxic Organizational Culturequot Guthrie presents the position that as the leader New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was responsible for harboring an environment that led to what was termed Bridgegate Based upon what you have learned thus far about leadership and organizational culture do you support or refute Guthrie s position Cite at least one source to support perspective Respond to at least two of your classmates posts Based on this article I would immediately have to agree with Guthrie in his stance that the actions of staff within a company are a direct re ection of the culture that has been created by the leader Guthrie 2014 Furthermore it is appalling how these leaders tend to claim ignorance of the goings on in their company when the very nature of a leader is to know everything that is happening under his or her leadership The type of power that a governor typically wields is in the very least coercive power given that they have the ability to affect their subordinates by ways of insinuating termination or other punishment if they are not obeyed Baack 2012 In addition since someone in this seat of power is able to grant power to others or take it away it seems as if the position of ignorance is one of a zero sum game in that if the power to make bad decisions is granted to the subordinates it may be taken away from the governor Simply put if it is someone else s fault it cannot be mine This line of thinking de nitely does not depict a leader but rather a ruler whom has no other motivation but to serve themselves This behavior is a classic example of a politician or player who is enacting the use of situation engineering to manipulate the situation into his or her favor no matter the consequences or suffering of others References Baack D 2012 Organizational behavior San Diego CA Bridgepoint Education Inc Retrieved from httpscontentashford edubooksAUBUS61012 2 Guthrie D 2014 January 16 Who s to blame for creating a toxic wanizational culture Forbes Retrieved from httpwwwforbescomsitesdougguthrie20140116whosto blamefor creatingatoxicorganizationalculture
