Saw this on Linkedin. Sorry do not know whom to give credit.

Sharing – C-Suitism – My Uncopyright – Satire

Edit post

Next few posts I wish to share with readers about the ism’s that I have come across in my work life. Some are great, some are humorous, some satirical yet most of them qualified for my terming them together as C-Suitism ! 
Few weeks ago, I posted one with a Picture called Scepticism and everyone knows what it is.  There is a small caveat for the readers – This material is picked from different sources and I am unable to give due credit to the right people but whatever are my own original thoughts – they have ‘Uncopyright’ and you can use that material freely without bothering about attributing it to me or giving credit to me. Thank you.
Let us begin with some “ism” Quotes I found very utilitarian i.e. useful to quote here :). They are from GoodReads.com.  You may find a treasure there.

Quotes About Isms

Quotes tagged as “isms” (showing 1-5 of 5)
“For in spite of itself any movement that thinks and acts in terms of an ‘ism’ becomes so involved in reaction against other ‘isms’ that it is unwittingly controlled by them. For it then forms its principles by reaction against them instead of by a comprehensive, constructive survey of actual needs, problems, and possibilities.”
― John Dewey
Disclaimer: -I do not intend ‘C-Suitism’ to create any positive or negative reactions from the C-Suite fraternity. I do foresee a comprehensive, constructive survey of their actual needs, problems and possibilities though. (Italics are mine),
“The irony of American history is the tendency of good white American as to presume racial innocence. Ignorance of how we are shaped racially is the first sign of privilege. In other words. It is a privilege to ignore the consequences of race in America.”
― Tim Wise
“To competently perform rectifying security service, two critical incident response elements are necessary: information and organization.”
― Robert E. Davis
“To us, the high-resounding “isms” to which our contemporaries ask; us to give our allegiance, now, in 1948, are all equally futile: bound to be betrayed, defeated, and finally rejected by men at large, if containing anything really noble; bound to enjoy, for the time being, some sort of noisy success; if sufficiently vulgar, pretentious and soul-killing to appeal to the growing number of mechanically conditioned slaves that crawl about our planet, posing as free men; all destined to prove, ultimately, of no avail.”
― Savitri Devi
Disclaimer/Claimer: I tend to agree with her quote above as I believe it is still contemporary and relevant in 2016. (Italics are mine). I especially like the Bold text in the quote above.
“…ism’s are not good. A person should not believe in an ism. He should believe in himself.”
― Ferris Beuller
Disclaimer:Claimer: I partially agree with the above. While I agree a person should believe in himself – I feel ism’s are good and one should believe or create one’s own ism. If I was younger – I would have created ‘Parkheism’ rather than ‘C-Suitism’ and actually copyrighted it. 

Enjoy my short series of articles which I shall publish here for a while till my collected ism’s get over 🙂 ! The idea is to share the reading pleasure and get few Likes in return. 

 

Generalist

The First of the ism’s is Authoritarianism. 
People in C Suite may get blamed for this and must know what it means.
Origin of authoritarian1875-1880 1875-80; authorit(y) + – arian

Simple Definition of authoritarian is :

expecting or requiring people to obey rules or laws

or not allowing personal freedom.

1. favoring complete obedience or subjection to  authority as opposed to individualfreedom
: authoritarian principles; authoritarian attitudes.
2. of or relating to a governmental or political  system, principle, or practice in whichindividual  freedom is held as completely subordinate to the  power or authority ofthe state, centered either in  one person or a small group that is not  constitutionallyaccountable to the people.
3. exercising complete or almost complete control  over the will of another or ofothers: an authoritarian parent.

4. a person who favors or acts according to  authoritarian principles.

You can find more synonyms here.
Finally, 
Authoritarianism, is a principle of blind submission to authority, as opposed to individual freedom of thought and action. In government, authoritarianism denotes any political system that concentrates power in the hands of a leader or a small elite that is not constitutionally responsible to the body of the people.
Authoritarian leaders often exercise power arbitrarily and without regard to existing bodies of law, and they usually cannot be replaced by citizens choosing freely among various competitors in elections. The freedom to create opposition political parties or other alternative political groupings with which to compete for power with the ruling group is either limited or nonexistent in authoritarian regimes.
Authoritarianism thus stands in fundamental contrast to democracy. It also differs from totalitarianism, however, since authoritarian governments usually have no highly developed guiding ideology, tolerate some pluralism in social organization, lack the power to mobilize the entire population in pursuit of national goals, and exercise that power within relatively predictable limits.
Examples of authoritarian regimes, according to some scholars, include the pro-Western military dictatorships that existed in Latin America and elsewhere in the second half of the 20th century.
So Mr./Ms. C-Suitor – beware if you begin to be called Authoritarian – initially behind your back ( and it does not reach you thru 360 degree feedback – but as gossip).  To me, the Key is in realizing  whether you lack the power to mobilize the entire organisation in pursuit of Corporate goals either yourself, or thru your Executive Team and wield a Positive Influence over your organisation or otherwise.
