“Erotique de l’administration”, a book for the study of management objectives

According to a Gallup study, only 20% of employees worldwide said they were engaged in their work in 2021. Dissatisfaction is partly related to the difficulty of finding meaning in assigned missions and has been demonstrated by the mass resignation phenomenon observed during the health crisis caused by Covid-19. But this deep weakness is also related “An almost universal skepticism about management as practiced in the world of work”.

In an essay published by PUF, The eroticism of the administration. Philosophical considerations about the end of management, Philosopher Ghislaine Deslandes thus invites “A suffocating concept of management that reveals a sharper mismatch between the way collective action is conducted and the women and men involved in it”. Evidence of this denial, “A minority of employees say they want to be managers themselves one day”.

The concept of management is shrouded in fog today, explains Mr. Deslandes. What are the sources of rejection that affect him? What new goals does he need to hit to start the upgrade? and finally, “What Philosophy Can Do in This Complete Overhaul of Business Administration” ? The author develops these lines of reflection through his final essay, where the opinion of Pascal (1623-1662) regularly serves the reader.

Focusing on describing dominant managerial practices, the author invites “King Cipher”. who “Tends to establish a normative and unequivocal regime of management that unequivocally decides who the winners and losers are and that leaves little room for interpretation and disagreement.”. Mr. Deslandes condemns A “Tendency to Access the Truth Based on Numbers in Organizations”. A “Management by numbers” or “Measurement has replaced judgment because measurement ultimately means judgment”he sums it up.

Merit, respect

But the author reminds us that a manager should also be able to weigh, feel, and understand the unexpected. Management should “You count the ethical requirement where the circle of affects takes precedence”. The author thus invites us to think about the exchange crisis, “we”To better consider the collective and its interaction in the management of workers. With this he believes that in managerial thinking “why” (end as goal), so far in the shadow “how”, must find its place. One way to consider it “The Search for Meaning” employees.
