Lunch with Luke - Understanding the Corporate Psychopath

Join us for the first in a series of lunch time seminars with Luke Broomhall, Forensic Psychologist, as he discusses topical psychological issues over a bite to eat.

Luke has provided expert evidence and offender profiling in some of the most disturbing cases in South Australia. He now uses his expertise to assist both Courts and Organisations to understand and manage aberrant personality characteristics. His opinion is regularly sought in legal circles when examining the impact of personality and mental health problems in criminal behaviour. Organisations seeking to understand and manage challenging behaviours and personality characteristics have benefitted from Luke’s unique combination of forensic and business experience.

In his first seminar, he will look closely at The Corporate Psychopath:

The term “Psychopath” is often used (and at times overused) in organisations to describe senior managers. In some cases, the term is used by staff unfairly to describe a manager who is asking them to do their job. However, Corporate Psychopaths do exist and where they do, bullying nearly doubles and staff turnover increases. Many of these individuals are skilled social manipulators, which presents a problem for organisations confronting the task of managing such workplace behaviour.
