Is your boss a corporate psychopath?
With their finely honed political skills, sharp timing and chameleon-like abilities, they thrive on risk, chaos and upheaval. And they are cold-blooded enough to claim later that they did nothing wrong.
Dr Robert Hare and Dr Paul Babiak tell you how you to find out if your boss is a psychopath.
According to research cited, managers scored higher on measures of psychopathy than the overall population. Some who had very high scores were candidates for, or held, senior positions.
"The very skills that make the psychopath so unpleasant (and sometimes abusive) in society can facilitate a career in business even in the face of negative performance ratings," Stuff.co.nz quoted the researchers as saying.
