In 2006, we published Snakes in Suits, which quickly became the definitive book on how to discover and defend yourself against psychopaths in the workplace. Now, Dr. Robert Hare and Dr. Paul Babiak return with a fully revised and updated edition, incorporating the latest science and brand new anecdotes, making sure that this guide remains invaluable to individuals and human resource professionals. Dr. Robert Hare has devoted more than three decades of his professional career to the investigation of the psychopath and how psychopathic behavior influences and corrupts society. Hare is the creator of the Psychopathy Checklist (PCL-R), a twenty item personality checklist that has become the standard for diagnosing psychopaths. There is no doubt that everyone has come in contact and possibly been deceived by a psychotic personality. In fact, most disturbingly, it’s the nature of a psychopath to initially come across as very appealing and likable. How do you defend yourself against such a person in the workplace? In Snakes in Suits, industrial and corporate psychologist Dr. Paul Babiak teams up with Dr. Hare to focus on the psychopath’s role in modern corporations. Together they created the B-scan, a personality test for job candidates so that employers can identify potential psychopaths. As today’s business world has perfect conditions for the psychopath, Snakes in Suits informs the reader how to spot him before he destroys. Signs of a psychopath at work include: o He gives the perfect interview, and quickly becomes everybody’s favorite employee. o He can be charming and exudes confidence and determination-but he may seem too good to be true. o He works his way into a high-powered position or gets assigned important projects because he has associated only with the people who can advance his career. o He soon becomes controlling and abusive toward other employees, starts to break small rules, manipulate colleagues, and gets caught blaming others for his own faults. o It is later revealed that he has been destroying the management while pushing his way to the top. Now fully up-to-date, Snakes in Suits reveals the psychopath’s secrets, introduces the ways in which they manipulate and deceive, and helps readers see through their games. The rapid pace of today’s corporate environment provides the perfect breeding ground for these employees, and Snakes in Suits will give readers the necessary tools to protect themselves and their companies-before it’s too late.
