Sycophant Syndrome

According to Westover and White sycophants are no good for an organisation. So why is the Northern Territory Government full of sycophants?

They are prepared to overlook anything shady, illegal or unethical as long as they are getting to hang around and share some power. These individuals spoil the work the work environment and diminish the enthusiasm level, which become a drain on productivity. An organization which is under the the clutches of sycophants will never be able to do innovative and novel activities; rather will always be involved in routine works only.
