Leadership, Work, and the Dark Side of Personality uses an interpersonal psychological perspective to unite general theories of both personality and leadership. By focusing in on the interpersonal, the book characterizes social behaviors by their agency (how dominant they are) and by their communion (how relational and nurturing they are). It argues that these interpersonal dimensions align closely with the traditional structure of leader behaviors—both task-related and relationship oriented behaviors—and uses those frameworks to orient trait theory for

They focus on the nature, behaviours and consequences of psychopathy

"Robert Hogan is known for suggesting that the most consequential question in human affairs is, "Who should lead?" History is riddled with examples of how the survival of collectivities - schools, governments, nations, organizations - is determined by who is in charge. Good leaders turn businesses drowning in red ink into industry juggernauts; they transform "B" players into high-performers with minimal infighting and seamless cooperation. Yet history also shows that leadership strengths coincide with deeply troubled dark sides that result

Thus, a primary goal of this book is to unite personality psychology and clinical psychology. It synthesizes recent research that connects pathological personality features to the Big Five personality dimensions, creating an interdisciplinary taxonomy of dark personality traits. This

Likewise, there is a growing awareness that the focus on the positive side of leadership and followership can be fruitfully complemented by a focus on the darker sides of these constructs.
