The Psychology of Rule Breaking

 Creating a Culture of Compliance

by Daniel Sachau, PH.D.

Why do employees break rules? Why don’t warnings, threats or lectures work? What can supervisors do to encourage compliance? This book is about the psychological mechanisms of rule breaking and compliance. The book will help supervisors diagnose the causes and consequences of rule breaking; shape the environment so threats, bribes and warnings are unnecessary; use social pressure to your advantage; “sell” rules to employees; spot employees who are likely to break the rules, and create a culture of compliance.
