New Thinking at Berkeley Haas: Jerks, Narcissists, and their Impact on Organizations


January 21, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Watch Live


Join Berkeley Haas Profs. Jennifer Chatman and Cameron Anderson for a conversation led by Prof. Don Moore about management lessons drawn from their recent research on toxic personalities and the damage they inflict. Chatman, a leading expert on organizational culture, has published several papers on the ways that narcissistic leaders weaken their organizations and cause long-lasting damage. Recent research by Anderson, who studies power and status, found that people with disagreeable personalities are prone to aggressively push ahead of others, but thwart their own careers through their lack of collaboration. Even so, both of these personality types are all too common in the ranks of management. How can organizations avoid the problems they create?
