Three worlds of managers : from serenity to resistance

This article presents the main results of a research program on the work of managers, funded by the National Agency of Research (2008-2010). Based on 100 semi-structured interviews, conducted in seven private and public companies, and using a factor analysis of the speech, the authors describe a horizontal division of the world of executives. They outline the hypothesis of social systems that exist around the three figures of managers: the serene, the individualized and the resistant.
