Corporate Psychopaths

"As corporate psychopaths are reported to cause chaos and confusion in the workplace and to use resources for their own ends, it was expected that employees would experience greater constraints in their presence than would otherwise have been the case"

Corporate psychopaths directly affect such organisational development because they tend to be disruptive to those around them, and especially to junior colleagues (Clarke, 2005). The presence of corporate psychopaths in a corporation, therefore, would theoretically be expected to be associated with lower levels of organisational effectiveness and increased organisational constraints.

A recent research conducted by Boddy C.R. (2010) investigated this possible association and found that increased constraints were clearly evident in the presence of corporate psychopaths in an organisation.

Where an organisation has been infiltrated by corporate psychopaths, previous commentators have reported that often, a few people get very rich while everyone else suddenly finds themselves abandoned, out of a job, without their promised pension or even without a company left to work for (Ullman, 2006).
