Diriger et encadrer autrement: théoriser ses propres stratégies alternatives

By Frederik Mispelblom Beyer, Catherine Glée

Voici un livre résolument optimiste et joyeux, truffé d’anecdotes et d’exemples amusants, qui rompt avec l’ambiance morose de l. a. « souffrance au travail ». Sans en nier l’existence ni les dégâts, il montre à partir d’une enquête approfondie que des stratégies possible choices d’encadrement se pratiquent et ce, dans des companies très différentes, dans le public comme dans le privé (entreprises industrielles et de carrier, secteur social et hôpital, multinationales et PME-PMI…).
Les hommes et les femmes interviewés, cadres dirigeants ou non, parfois délégués syndicaux, ont tous en commun d’avoir souffert de harcèlement et de maltraitance. Ils ont parfois connu de longues périodes de chômage ; mais ils témoignent ici de leur ténacité, de leur capacité à « encaisser des coups », à lutter contre les discriminations de toutes sortes.
Au fil des récits et des pages, se dégagent des principes communs, des façons de théoriser ces pratiques, à partir de valeurs humanistes et d’éléments des sciences sociales et humaines. Ramassées en vingt-cinq principes fondamentaux, ces stratégies choices forment un « bréviaire de résistance et d’innovation » dont tous les salariés peuvent s’inspirer. Loin des utopies louables d’un « administration alternatif à inventer », il s’agit ici du travail déjà à l’oeuvre pour diriger et encadrer « autrement ».

Frederik Mispelblom Beyer, Professeur de sociologie à l’université Paris UniverSud Evry, est responsable de l’équipe de recherche CRF (centre de recherche sur l. a. formation) / ÉTÉ (enseigner, transmettre, encadrer). Il anime le web site encadrer-et-manager.com et a rédigé cet ouvrage avec Catherine Glée, maître de conférences à l’IAE Lyon (Université Jean Moulin Lyon three) où elle dirige le grasp ressources humaines et enterprise et est membre du Centre de recherche Magellan.
