One of the things that makes “The Wolf Of Wall Street” so incredible is the fact that it was actually based on a true story. When you consider the absolutely insane antics of the organization and levels of success it reached, it’s pretty unbelievable. In order to fully describe the manic culture within the organization, we must begin by defining the two types of culture, observable and core culture.Observable culture is “visible and is readily apparent at the surface of every organization. It is expressed in the way that people dress at work, how they arrange their offices, how they speak to and behave toward one another, the nature of their conversations, and how they talk about and treat customers and clients” (Schermerhorn, 2013, Ch. 12.1). …show more content…
My killers who will not take no for an answer! My (explicit) warriors who’ll not hang up the phone, until their client either buys or dies! Let me tell you something. There is no nobility in poverty. I’ve been a rich man, and I’ve been poor man. And I choose rich every time. Cause, At least as a rich man, when I have to face my problems, I show up in the back of a limo wearing a $2000 suit …and $40,000 gold (explicit) watch! Now, if anyone here thinks I’m superficial or materialistic. Go get a job at (explicit) McDonald’s, because that’s where you (explicit) belong!... I’ll make you richer than the most powerful CEO of the United States of (explicit) America. I want you to go out there, and I want you to RAM Steve Madden stock down your clients’ throats. Till they (explicit) choke on it till they choke on it and buy 10,000 shares! That’s what I want you to do. You’ll be ferocious! You’ll be relentless! You’ll be telephone (explicit) terrorists! Now, let’s knock this Mother (explicit) out of the park! …show more content…
Subcultures “exist within organizational culture and consist of members who share similar values and beliefs based on their work responsibilities, personal characteristics, and social identities” (Schermerhorn, 2013, Ch. 12.2). Subcultures in “The Wolf Of Wall Street” are interesting topics because in a movie where there is so much corruption and controversy you would expect differing opinions and to see subcultures but the movie does not focus on them if there were. The only subculture that I am able to see is the occupational and functional subcultures but the movie does not delve into them much. Occupational and functional subcultures are the cultures that form within different departments. For example, in a school the faculty would likely form a subculture and the students would form another. In the case of “The Wolf Of Wall Street” everyone is very similar so subcultures are unlikely to form. There were very few women workers and almost no race diversity. There were very likely subcultures in reality though, including but not limited to; the brokers themselves, lawyers, managers, c-suite members, marketers, secretaries, and even new or veteran employees. Having these subcultures would likely help the organization because the different groups are all doing separate jobs and, in the movie at least, never really crossed paths. Having a subculture in each group could increase camaraderie between group members. Issues could
