Drift and Clobber Management / Leadership

Inattentive or laissez faire oversight, followed by sudden, harsh enforcement of rules, followed by inattentive or laissez faire oversight.

Sound familiar?

Is the drift and clobber style ever effective?

I believe they tried a similar experiment on rats and it turned them psychotic.

Happy Monday!

Usually it’s the sign of worse things to come. When the pendulum between laissez faire and harsh enforcement swings suddenly, it’s time to start looking for a new job.

When I was in school, I took my parents dog into the dorm for finals week. I had a lot of work to do, and he was a noisy dog, so every time he would bark or growl, I would throw a shoe over my shoulder.

Took him back to my folks, and my mother was amused that now instead of barking, dog would duck and look upward.
