Hogan Interview - by Skye Trubov
Has your empathy and compassion ever led to anxiety about what others think of you? Has your competitive nature ever made enemies? Has your persuasiveness ever led to manipulation? We all possess dark side traits which may have helped us achieve success in the past but if we don’t keep these traits in check, they’ll eventually catch up and may well lead to detrimental outcomes. Given the topical nature of toxic leadership and scandalous behaviour, we found ‘The Dark Side’ to be a fitting theme for the Association for Business Psychology (ABP) conference this year in October.
Welcome to the Dark Side... Our conference last year sold out. Get your tickets now!
The ABP’s 17th Annual Conference will take place between 12th and 13th October at Brentford, London - see the Conference section of the website for further details.
