Abstract

All organizational executives confront varied and complex environmental sectors. Some provide nourishment, others threaten. The skilled executive knows the difference and seeks to monitor those in the community who represent a potential threat. At times, more than monitoring is justified. Cooptation is one of the most commonly used strategies to neutralize resistance and hostility from antagonistic community groups.
