dc.description.abstractThis book: A work exposing the phenomena of the dysfunctional workplace is long overdue. This fascinating work does just that, uncovering the subversiveness, counter-productive behaviour and unspoken ‘issues’ that management struggle with on a daily basis. It considers the symptoms of distress, illness, absenteeism, and inefficiency that point towards behavioural disorders and system-wide malfunction – those deemed to be the cause are often referred to as ‘successful psychopaths’. From personality disorders to wars over ‘territory’, this book chronicles, unravels and reveals the true nature of problems at work. So what can be done? International experts from diverse disciplinary backgrounds (including management, psychology and economics) provide lively discussion of and practical solutions for a whole range of dysfunctional phenomena in organizations.
