Using evolutionary psychology, researchers at the University of New South Wales found that much of the behavior high-level executives exhibit mirrors the territorial personality of long-extinct tribes. Bosses show signs of male domination: in "protecting their turf," they ostracize nonconformist or disagreeable group members, intimidating all of their employees into adhering to a certain framework of acceptable behavior. The leader does all that he or she can to prevent being threatened by any upstarts or whistleblowers. The study found that meetings are usually held in the most senior manager's office, and he/she controls the agenda. Instead of sitting at their desks, bosses make the rounds, learning who is friends with who, participating in meetings, and leveraging their positions. Just knowing that your boss could come around the corner at any moment probably keeps you off of personal email and your favorite blogs. Perhaps as a sign of an overall unwillingness to leave their posts, managers in this study rarely take midday breaks, while staff takes full advantage of their lunch hour. Even bullying, while in no way a condoned practice in the workplace, is more understandable when placed in a tribal framework.
