*This paper has been produced from the PhD dissertation titled "The Phenomenon of Silence in Organizational Life: A Qualitative Study on Silence in Formal Groups in Academic Organizations" conducted under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Ferda Erdem.
Abstract
The purpose of this study is to reveal the causes and meanings of silence in formal group settings of academic organizations. To this end, a deep and comprehensive investigation was performed using the phenomenological approach, which is a qualitative method, with 36 academic staff who had experienced silence within the relevant formal structure. The findings revealed that silence in the context produced by structural and cultural characteristics of formal group settings of academic organizations was caused by psychological, socio-cultural, individual, situational, and managerial factors, and factors attributed to the organizational context, besides the system. On the other hand, the synthesis of textural and structural descriptions showed that silence reflects a form of political behavior in formal group settings of academic organizations. The study identified different definitions and insights related to the phenomenon of silence in organizational life.
