Summary

Organisations create a myriad of dependencies. We rely on them for an income and therefore our financial futures. The role we play in them provides status amongst our colleagues, friends and family. They act as a rich seam to be tapped for our social pleasure with like-minded individuals. They give us purpose, as we develop our knowledge and skills to be the best that we can be and to hopefully secure that promotion, leading to a greater role and greater status. However, for many people the impact of the organisation on their lives is not a positive experience.
