Managing Workplace Psychopaths Course

Management. Lift your career and your organisation.

Learn Management the smart way with Management courses at CCE, The University of Sydney.

When we label someone as a psychopath in the workplace, what do we mean? Are we a victim or are we also partly responsible for their behaviour?

The aim of this managing workplace psychopaths course is to develop ways to remove psychopathic behaviour and its interpretation.

In this managing workplace psychopaths course we will focus on the serious issue of worker well-being and how we can help create a positive workplace and rid it of its toxic or potentially toxic elements.

We will address the causes of domineering blame games, festering resentments, recklessness, poor service and poor morale – these are just some of the signs that can imperil, pollute or damage workplaces.

In contrast, some complaints and grievances are not always forthcoming – especially from staff who may feel intimated or fear reprisals. Many managers may not wish to acknowledge the problems and even refuse to do so – they are the source of the issue, directly or indirectly.

What others say.

  • Very helpful course for the workplace and dealing with challenging people. Fantastic presenter – very engaging, great sense of humour with lots of examples provided from real life. Lots of opportunities for the participants to provide their own stories from their workplace, and to share experiences. Good activities that helped us develop skills to work with psychopaths more effectively.

  • I enjoyed this course and the content. Love how informal the surroundings are and the lecturer.

  • Great practical exercises and flexibility on the content.

  • This was a very interesting and useful course for both understanding the various aspects of different people and the action you can take when you run into difficulty.

  • Great course, excellent tutor, detailed content with good reference material – and class case studies to back up learning. It was great meeting a lovely group of people too.

  • The tutor gave a great day of information and experience. I enjoyed and appreciated the presentation style – establishing a sincere and responsive rapport with the students. Laughter and the ability to look at situations on a lighter side was a good balance to the challenging information of today’s subject.
