Cuckoo in corporate?  Certainly, in many corporate, cuckoo does exist.  Entrepreneurs must realize and keep a watch on the working style of the people in the organization.

How this phrase assumes significance in the corporate?  The bird cuckoo is the best example suited to define the skill and talents of some people in the organization.  The bird nicely identify the nest of crow during the breeding season, remove the eggs of crow from its clutch, lay its eggs and make the crow to incubate and nurse the nestlings.  They make the crow to believe that it is nursing its own young ones, but will be late for the crow to realize the truth. 

Some people in the organization are very smart in getting their job done by their juniors or others.  But such people affect the performance of their juniors and set a bad culture in the organization. 

From the organizational point of view, the job is well done by those people but always the performance must be seen and understood from an impartial end.  Entrepreneurs are likely to make mistake in encouraging the culture of ‘brood parasitism’ as ‘people management’ is what all about leadership.  People management and cuckooism are different.  Identifying the right talents, bringing the best performance, form a flock and make everyone work as a team is what ‘people management is all about.  The cuckooism is exactly different.  Make some one to do the job the leader by giving some false promise and once the job is done, the credit is taken and the promise would remain as ‘politicians promise’. 

The people managers disguise their identity under the name tag of task managers, tough managers, leader of high caliber, highly focused etc. The brood parasitism will kill the organization.  Rebels, mutiny, fear and anguish etc would slowly upspring in such organizations.  People managers are like tumor, once established, difficult to remove.  Identifying such people and removing them from the organization may be possible, but the cultural legacy created by them in the organization seldom fades.  

The claiming the credit of other job & snatching the credit from others is quite natural in corporate and nature.  All these events are accidental, but cuckooism extremely unhealthy.  The key concern area every HR must know is about brood parasitism.  What is rare in nature may be abundant in corporateArticle Search, the entrepreneurs must be aware of it.  Weeding out such pests at the right time is must for the growth of the organization.
