Communication has to go beyond emotional content of information.

Big challenges don’t always produce big breakthroughs from big companies to start-ups, to government agencies to non-profits NGO’s, charitable status running a home grown “time share” letting’s agency that has government approval, no matter how draconian they are seen as fulfilling a useful purpose of supplying social housing the government in the past was responsible for, now it is the private sector who are managing disreputable places  — disreputable because they manage to make them that way.

Trust has to be built between somebody on the management team and somebody who is trusted by the residents which highlights the importance of residents-facing management when practiced is an explicit acknowledgement that “the business of residents planning in Peacock Place belongs to – “me,” not middle executives, that in fact, not just by name “I the Site Manager here represent the residents at Peacock Place to oversee fairness between housing association bureaucracy and residents.” Dare the Site Manager say that? Dare residents trust the Site Manager? Not when they are low paid authoritarians within a top heavy prejudicial management structure. Such is the cost to residents from deliberate divisional tactics with the aim to confuse result with intent, as if the intent is the priority of the result, 'you didn't understand what I meant or I thought you knew' is the misinformation that is the the point unison for humiliation.

Such low-level tactics are everyday blatant examples of tactical manipulation from management encouraging low grade staff to perform tasks not their core role are weak and susceptible to their failings’ being reported. Here is a power imbalance from management sliding, so employees feel they have to tell management and client the information being desired, in the hopes of securing good performance reviews and the like.
When applyed to WHA this cycle tends to perpetuate itself into expansionism at the expense of modernising living conditions of old housing stock to 21 century standard but appear to modernise using annual charges set aside for general running expenses. WHA's policy is to take profit at the expense of housing tenants in substandard accommodation if built to-day wouldn't reach the beer-mat stage never mind the cost of an A4 sheet of paper. ...

WHA management has a tendency to punish those who contradict the official story line as dark and dangerous. To manage critics within, to be on the safe side from mistakes making public conversations WHA seem for the sake of prudence remove employee from position suddenly, eased out, disappear from service followed hastly with circulated unsigned letter “wish you farewell,” far being genuine goodbye are gone without trace to "take up a new job"?

Communication beyond emotional content of information.

WHA’s Management practices on the achievement of socially significant and noble goals is akin to the archaic penal system “marked for special attention, meaning poles apart response equally to a well connected confident as apposed to a non-connected resident. Command-and-control systems reflect a deep mistrust of employee’s interaction commitment with resident client’s WHA tend to overemphasis sanctions as a way of forcing compliance. WHA are filled with anxious employees hesitant to take initiative on what is not proven as regular occurrence and trust their own judgment as to what is fact as opposed to fiction.

Things that “everybody knows” and regularly complain about are sometimes treated is “impossible or invisible or nothing” to formal management structures who have not the skill to work out simple “risk assessment” and nobody dare tell senior management that information and therefore is excluded from formal management investigative process which leads to broken management-employee-client resident wellbeing. But is that not exactly what senior-executives want, an unhinged transition no matter how weak it is as long as it appears functional, that’s an achievement, that will hold for now!
