ADM 624 Module 5 DQ 1

Not everyone is enchanted by ideas of empowerment and teamwork. For example,


Richard Sennett, a sociologist at New York University, argues in The Corrosion of
Character, that because teamwork relies on the fiction of harmony, it stresses mutual
responsiveness at the expense of original thinking. Unity, he argues, requires that a
team confine its members to specific tasks and superficial processes, without much
reference to either the experience or leader. This obscures ordinary power
relationships, a condition Sennett call power without authority. Above all, he says, the
team prohibits conflict; thus, turning itself into a new form of domination. Do you
agree or disagree? Why?
