Dial Up Your Inner Psychopath!








For Coaches

For Leaders/HR


£ Exclusive to members of The Henley Partnership

Hosted by Henley Business School.

Do psychopaths have what it takes to get ahead and, if so, should we all be learning from them? In this session, you will explore the proposition that being able to ‘dial up’ certain psychopathic traits can be beneficial in business. For example, if you need to make job cuts for your business to survive, being able to dial up a lack of empathy can enable you to make decisions based on objective information and logic. If you need to influence key people to get a deal done, dialling up your superficial charm and manipulation can help to win them over.

However, what are the dangers of this approach? We will look at how it can spill over into negative behaviours and how encouraging more psychopathic traits in staff can lead to a ‘toxic’ culture.

This session will help you understand:

  • Which psychopathic traits can be advantageous.
  • Which situations and circumstances provide an advantage to those with psychopathic traits.
  • What the downsides of dialling up psychopathic traits might be for the individual.
  • What happens to organisational culture if dialling up of psychopathic traits occurs in your organisation.

Who is this for

  • Anyone who recognises that they are dealing with complex personalities in their team, or their work in general.
  • Those who want to understand more about the ‘dark side’ of the human psyche, and how it can show up and disrupt a team or organisation.
  • Leaders who want to create a positive work culture, and mitigate for the down-side of any personality traits which show up in their team.
