    Resumé

    PRESENTATION No 72: THE PROMOTED SIBLING
    By their writings about sibling relations Mitchell and Coles has added fruitful
    complexity to the psychodynamic understanding of families, groups and organisations.
    With a point of departure in a study of self-governing groups in a factory the
    paper introduces the concept: ‘the promoted sibling’ which provide quite some
    understanding of the middle managers challenges in his or her role and the challenges in democracy in general.
    The middle manager can be seen as ‘a sibling promoted from above’ and
    democracy can be seen as siblings promoting a sibling to be ‘a temporary parent’ (Winnicott) or ‘a sibling promoted from below’.
    The extension of the family dynamics with the sibling relations provides
    a way to understand challenges to leaders in postmodern organisations. Theories
    about leadership has until now been occupied with the vertical relations in the
    organisations. To lead a team of creative people the leader has to pay attention
    both to the relations between leader and followers and to the relations between
    the followers. Creativity seems to be closely linked to envy and dealing with
    envy and fear of envy seems to be an issue in growth.
