How can? Without camaraderie...

At ISCTE showing some conclusions of a work done in Portuguese prison system. Values of camaraderie were very low, what is a issue that have to be fostered. Without sense of camaraderie how can we develop a cooperation culture, a real team?

It was applied a construct of Kets de Vries, INSEAD professor, that measures happiness in organizations. Furthermore, other items were measured, like leadership trust, communication process, training opportunities, family balance, sense of justice, and creativity in workplace.

So, change is needed in this institution. It's not easy, because prison system is a kind of paramilitary organization, with tough rules and procedures, a tight leadership, very conservative environment, bureaucratic.
