Schismogenesis and collaborative

without comments

Schismogenesis – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Systems of holding back are also a form of schismogenesis. They are defined as “mutually aggregating spirals which lead people to hold back contributions they could make because others hold back contributions they could make.”[6]

In Systems intelligence literature it is held that human interaction has a tendency to fall into such systems unless conscious effort is made to counter this tendency. For example, although most managers would want to give support to their team and most team members would like to receive such support many times support does not result. This is because both parties might feel that the other party is not giving enough and thus they will themselves hold back what they in the best case could give. It has been suggested that systems of holding back are “the single most important key to life-decreasing, reciprocity-trivializing and vitality-downgrading mechanisms in human life.” [7]
