Managers’ incapability and Psychology of Being Defeated in Turkey

The sustainability of the social existence depends on the presence of problem solving capacity and fulfillment of own tasks and responsibilities of all groups and individuals; especially organizations and institutions. Societies maintain their existence as nations and states through social institutions like family, school and temple; public institutions like central and local government entities; private organizations like companies producing goods and services and other formal or informal organizations (such as non-governmental organizations). The essential task for all these formal and informal organizations is to fulfill the needs of several different social subsystems and provide appropriate solutions arising in this area. For the organizations of all types, the main indicator of management capability of managers and human resources are that, if the issues in the area under their responsibility are resolved. In the organizations and societies which managers have insufficient skills and abilities to manage, internal conflicts are inevitable. In the societies which the problems cannot be resolved properly and the internal conflicts cannot be prevented; after a while, a deep “being defeated” and “being a loser” psychology arises in people.

Dr. Lütfi Kýrdar’s 12 Years of Service Time Was the Beginning of the First Big Reconstruction Works for Istanbul

If we compare New york to Istanbul, we can say that New York is a disaster, and Istanbul is a heaven… says the founder of modern architecture Le Corbusier. Le Corbuser does not forget those words he said, and in the future, he adds: A person plants trees where there are buildings. But we kill them. Ýstanbul is a garden of fruits. While our cities are just a stone. This statement is the statement of admiring the islam architecture and urbanism. Of course there was a contradiction in what the Master Le Corbusier said and did sometimes.
