Infiltration of organizational psychopaths: The enemy within
As an organizational psychologist, I can confidently submit that organizational psychopaths are manifest in the management ranks of many businesses today. How can you identify them and how can you survive in such an environment. Consider this; Long before I became a specialist in this industry, I was once a team leader where I was tasked with coordinating a workshop that was going to run for a whole day together with a group of managers selected from all departments in the organization that I was working for. All was going well as far as the workshop was concerned, and as per my expectation, with everyone making their contribution. Immediately after the lunch break, my senior manager makes an impromptu arrival, which attracts everyone`s attention and announces his disapproval about the way the workshop was running - this he did in front of everyone, and then went ahead and issued an ultimatum that he was taking over from then on. This could have been a one off situation, but if it is one that got me ultimately publicly and indeed certainly privately humiliated and undermined. The picture I am trying to portray that I was indeed working in an environment that had organizational psychopath.
The question therefore becomes: how do u endure and indeed carry through such a working environment?
Psychopaths comprise of a paltry 1 percent of a population.
It would not therefore be surprising that psychopaths find their way in organizations. This is reinforced by the work of American organizational psychologists Dr. Paul Babiak and Dr. Robert Hare who say that the high paced, hyper competitive and volatility nature of business environment today is a catalyst for psychopaths.
Psychopathy can be described as an extent of character trait or temperament that is essentially antisocial or criminal. The core psychopathic traits are: lack of remorse, narcissism, lack of empathy, inability to accept responsibility, tendencies of being manipulative. (Babiac and Hare 2009)
In the work environment, psychopaths are identified by their intelligence, charms, ability to change allegiance, aggression, creativity, ambition and energy. Ironically, many of these attributes are integral for an efficient leader. This therefore bolsters the ability of organizational psychopaths to be rooted and indeed thrive in the corporate world. (Babiak and Hare 2009) It is incumbent of organizations to be wary of organizational psychopaths and in retrospect the positive attributes that they wield as well as the retrogressive traits that they have.
And as Gardiner Morse alluded while writing for the Harvard Business Review in 2004, organizational psychopaths are manipulative, untrustworthy, cunning, unethical, utterly remorseful and parasitic. They tend to be joy riders who will do anything to get their way. ...
