The Professor of Leadership & Organisational Behaviour at Middlesex University Business School delivers his inaugural lecture.
Corporate Psychopaths: Who they are, What they do, Why they should be managed.
Corporate Psychopaths are important because they: Are more frequently at the top of western organisations than the bottom; Influence workplace behaviour such as conflict and bullying, unfair supervision, workload, job satisfaction, withdrawal, organisational constraints and corporate social responsibility; Are willing to engage in the illegal dumping of toxic waste materials; Influence customer service levels, managerial trust, credibility and ethical leadership; Engage in fraud and cause accounting scandals and Are assumed to have had a major influence on the behaviour that caused the global financial crisis.
Clive was educated at the universities of Leicester, Liverpool John Moores, Lincoln, Middlesex and Curtin and is Professor of Leadership and Organisation Behaviour at Middlesex. He has been at Middlesex University since 2000 when he was appointed Professor in Marketing, then Visiting Professor. Prior to that Clive worked in marketing research in Australia, Taiwan, Hong Kong and South Korea where he co-founded a multinational market research company with six other founder-directors. This eventually sold for US$80m with one of the remaining founders getting nearly all. Clive then developed his interest in Corporate Psychopaths, researching their influence on business since 2005.
