The purveyors of many popular organizational change methodologies unwittingly perpetuate the ESP by virtue of their exclusive focus on the system’s exterior. For example, the performance appraisal technique known as ‘‘360-degree feedback’’ fails to address the crucial issues of the personal integrity, intentions, values or beliefs of the individual under scrutiny, even though it does enhance the credibility of the ‘‘subordinate’s’’ perception of supervisory performance. Nevertheless, this otherwise innovative technique remains a thoroughly linear tool of assessment.
Nevertheless, even the handful of organizations that evidence an abiding sense of togetherness in practice, and not just in the popular language of ‘‘teamwork’’, cannot compare to the vitality and robustness of a system comprised of those who have ascended the plane in their moral evolution that affords them a world-centric view of reality. It is from this order of consciousness that the EOC ripens into the sin qua non of moral codes. In this light, the EOC cannot be regarded as some contrived ideal impossible to attain.
Hebb’s ‘‘rule’’ holds that whenever its elements are active together, a system is strengthened. When not, it is diminished. The implications of this fundamental tenet of systems dynamics for the enterprise are profound. Increased interaction among organizational members enhances the system’s resilience to flux in its environment, both internally and externally. Given the escalating turbulence of today’s business landscape, it only makes sense to rid the organization of the multiplicity of barriers to interaction that have been erected in keeping with the prescriptions of the control and command paradigm.
