Most of us have encountered nasty, negative, narcissists at work. The problem for those who believe in a just world is that often these traits are rewarded rather than punished. The meek do not inherit the earth- the Machiavellians do.
There are around 60-80,000 books on Leadership in the English language and most are on the bright side. The idea of leadership failure and derailment has been brushed under the carpet for far too long and only now are the statistics on the sheer numbers who fail coming out.
Backstabbers. builds on Adrian Furnham's previous title, The Elephant in the Boardroom- The Causes of Leadership Derailment (Palgrave), but provides the latest psychiatric and clinical perspectives on dark side behaviour and leadership failure, including recognizing and coping with over-confident, Schizotypal and Psychopathic leaders. The book will also go beyond the science to explore corporate culture corruption and the nature of corporate crime today. Most importantly, it makes recommendations for avoiding appointing leaders who fail and preventing dark side behavior in the work place.
