Authors: Robert D. Hare and Paul Babiak
In Snakes in Suits, Robert D. Hare, an expert on the scientific study of psychopathy, and Paul Babiak, an industrial and organizational psychologist and a leading authority on the corporate psychopath, examine the role of psychopaths in modern corporations and provide the tools employers can use to avoid and deal with them.
All of us at some point have — or will — come into contact with psychopathic individuals. The danger they present may not be readily apparent because of their ability to charm, deceive, and manipulate. Although not necessarily criminal, their self-serving nature frequently is destructive to the organizations that employ them.
Babiak and Hare reveal the secret lives of psychopaths, explain the ways in which they manipulate and deceive, and help you to see through their games. The rapid pace of today’s corporate environment provides the perfect breeding ground for these “snakes in suits” and this book gives you the insight, information, and power to protect yourself and your company before it’s too late.
