Psychopaths are never fun. Especially if you rely on them for work instructions, performance appraisals or day-to-day survival.
Here’s a little side-line: Why Bad Behaviour is Almost Always Good Politics, summarising some Machiavelli, some Hobbes and a little Jeffrey Pfeffer.
And then Why Performance won’t get you Promoted, from Jeffrey Pfeffer’s Power.
Bonus read: I read and highlighted Pfeffer’s book on Power (Why some people have it and others don’t) – contact me if you’d like a copy of my kindle highlights!
