Zombie Traits: Death and Organizational Identity
What are zombie traits? Zombie traits may be the hardest to diagnose of all organizational identity issues. They often spring up at the worst possible time, when you least expect them. This book will help you identify and cure these zombie traits before it takes over your organization. The book begins with an introduction describing the different organizational identities you may have developed over time and also going over some of the ways you might relate to these organizational identities. It then goes into identifying the characteristics associated with your fears and how these relate to being a victim and the death of a loved one. The book then goes into the five stages of grief and how these can be applied to organizational identity issues.
The first stage is denial – you refuse to believe what’s happening, or you minimize it. The second stage is anger – feelings that are often directed at oneself and others for not being able to stop this from happening in the future. Thirdly acceptance may come when people acknowledge they cannot change what has happened but they make changes as a result of their experience with death. Bargaining follows next where someone tries to get more time before facing up to reality by asking for things such as “If I do this will God give me another chance?” And finally, depression brings on feelings such as sadness and loneliness after realizing there was nothing one could.
As you read through the book you will identify zombie behavioral strategies that you may have developed based on your organizational identity. However, the beauty about the strategies presented in this text is that they are specifically tailored to help you develop the skills you need to effectively overcome your fears.
