Abstract Dark Personalities in the Workplace defines dark personalities, their prevalence in the workplace, and how they are best managed. The book brings together research in psychology and business to both profile these employees and impart best practices for businesses to manage them. Chapters explore narcissism, Machiavellianism, and psychopathy in a work context. Coverage includes common behaviors such as incivility, negative attitudes, counterproductive behavior, harassment, bullying, violence and fraud. The importance of leadership and organizational culture is explored as a mitigating factor to the ill effects of dark personalities. Case studies, applied solutions and practical tools round out the discussion.
