Q. If in a debate in an organisation one questions the actions of the owner/CEO, would it be right to be labelled a villain?

 

A. The answer to any speculative question tantamounts to either gossipy or pseudo-moralistic. The speculative scenario can’t be ascribed to an organisation in general. At best it can be an individual leadership style. It is also dependent on the behaviour of the subordinate on a relevant situation. One can’t ignore cause-effect behavioural outbursts. Hence, one can’t generalise. Having said that, I shall hasten to add that silence in an organisation can be self-defeating, specially with the rising expectations of an egalitarian workplace environment amongst the Generation Z. As they say, people don’t leave organisations, they leave a boss and a culture.
