A senior manager of Department of Human Services, Disability Accommodation Services (Victoria) said, “I want to be able to sleep at night!” So this manager moved out of DAS!

The manager was unable to sleep well at night, due to the stress of being in a catch-22, and wishing to do meaningful management

The catch-22 was, the manager unable to man-manage traditional public service staff lore. And was, therefore, unable to ensure residents in DHS group homes received quality of life care within departmental care policies standards and values.

Managers and supervisors within DAS and the traditional public service world of secure appearance employment have little choice, to keep their peace of mind, but take the pay and look the other way, or move out of this disaster situation where staff lore is king.
