Dr. Robert Hare is the foremost scholar and practicioner in the field of psychopathy and sociopathy, in the world today. In this video, Dr. Hare goes through the clinical dimensions for the assessment of psychopathy in individuals (Psychopathy Checklist Revised), and uses these dimensions to assess the behavior patterns of post-modern multinational corporations. His assessment hardly flatters today’s corporate world. Yes, the average corporation is psychopathic; and does that really surprise you?
This kind of exercise applies to any kind of organization, be it public or private, or public/private.
