Understanding the Dark Triad: Narcissism, Machiavellianism and Psychopathy

Within the complex and often hidden aspects of human personality, there are transformative forces at work. These forces become apparent through specific personality traits, collectively referred to as the Dark Triad: Narcissism (excessive focus on oneself), Machiavellianism (manipulative behaviour), and Psychopathy (lack of empathy and antisocial behaviour).

This MiTraining webinar unveils the complexities of these enigmatic characteristics, equipping you with the knowledge to identify and interact with such personalities in a professional setting.

Over the course of the webinar, MiTraining’s organisational psychologist will guide you through the intricacies of the Dark Triad, offering insights into how these traits influence behaviours, relationships, and workplace dynamics.

Learn to navigate the challenges posed by individuals exhibiting these traits and discover strategies for fostering a positive and productive environment, even in the face of potentially disruptive personalities.

This session is not just about understanding the dark aspects of human psychology; it's about turning awareness into action, allowing for better adaptation and resilience in professional interactions.
