“Systemic bullying, hazing and abuse generally are identified with poor, weak or toxic organizational cultures. Cultures that are toxic have stated ethical values that are espoused but not employed, and other non-ethical values which are operational, dominant, but unstated.
Such cultures thrive when good people are silent, silenced, or pushed out; when bad apples are vocal, retained, promoted, and empowered; and when the neutral majority remain silent in order to survive. Those who are most successful in such a toxic culture are those who have adapted to it, or adopted it as their own”. (McKay, Arnold, Fratzl & Thomas, 2008)

The University of Newcastle and city development - was McCloy involved?
"Newcastle City Council has agreed to sell the derelict former Civic Hotel site and surrounds to the university for about $3million, but the sale is conditional on a $65million federal grant application."
"Newcastle’s application was shortlisted, along with 40 others."
"One hurdle might be planning regulations. The 45-metre height of the proposed building is over the 30-metre height restriction at the site. Additional height is needed mainly to accommodate large lecture theatres. "
