The issue of corporate psychopathy is real. It is estimated that 15% of American CEOs are thought to be psychopaths. This is approximately the same as the prison population, which should scare all of us If you have not worked for a psychopath, there is a good chance you will at some point in your career. When this happens, the burden most often falls on the CFO and the Chief People Officer.
Many of the traits associated with psychopaths are highly coveted skills for chief executives. Join us on Tuesday, January 11th as we hear from Jack McCullough, president of the CFO Leadership Council and author of The Psychopathic CEO, An Executive Survival Guide.
