“GLORY GRABBERS /IDEA STEALERS (SUB GROUP: MANIPULATORS) Glory grabbers/Idea stealers are manipulators beyond all limits; they are credit snatchers whom the management world knows well. An idea stealer by definition is a person who presents or uses (someone else’s words or ideas) as one’s own. They take away our ideas, plans, drawings campaigns & what not to claim as their own. By fair and foul means, they steal other’s ideas, works, books and what not, and then claim them as their own. This gives them a boost in the eyes of higher management and peers. It is not important that such glory does not last long; it has catapulted them any way. Such glory grabbers, idea snatchers will have their likes in the animal kingdom. Royal Cuckoo & Peacock immediately come to mind, the latter because of the advertising skills owned by the species.”
Excerpt from my Jungle book of management, published by Broadways, Goa.

” Animals & birds have inspired human behavior since ages. Managers are no exception.Comapring a manager’s style to that of an animal or bird latent to him therefore becomes a management tool. This is to supplement the management theories which classify leadership styles as dictatorial, democratic, laissez-faire, autocratic, participative & so on. Readers may complain that some of the generalizations are oversimplification. Let me remind readers at this stage that theories of leadership styles have already generalized these. What I have tried to attempt in my own way is a symptomatic analysis of some traits of animals & birds & fitment into various patterns of human behavior. It is not claimed that comparisons are all inclusive & exhaustive. All the same, they do provide a basis on which further studies are possible”
This is a quote from the jungle book of management, under publication very shortly.
