    Hi Everyone,

    I am developing a one-day course on Toxic Leadership at the University
    of Tasmania.

    "Toxic Leadership: How to recognize, manage and defend against it"

    Currently it encompasses looking at Narcissists, Corporate ( i.e.
    primary, or 'successful' ) Psychopaths and Machiavellians and also
    with the similarities with Lipman-Blumen's 'Toxic Leaders' and
    Delbecq's 'evil managers'.

    What would anyone recommend as essential reading for course participants?

    I'd like to make sure I don't miss anything important out.

    Thanks in anticipation of your suggestions.

    Best regards from Australia,

    Clive Boddy.
