The Perils of Toxic Leadership
By: Dr. Chris Justino
About the Book
The Perils of Toxic Leadership is a science-based research-heavy discovery of toxic leaders’ overall effect on workplace culture, the wellbeing of those they manage, and the costs associated with such leaders.
This book aims to take the latest science on the topic and morph it into a user-friendly accounting of its most extraordinary implications. There has never been a more focused time on toxic leadership in the history of the world than there is today. With this book, Dr. Chris Justino is trying to create a digestible and engaging read that helps shine a light on specific traits to spot before hiring a toxic leader, accepting a role under a toxic leader, or voting for one. Since the 80s, global economies have been subject to the most heinous atrocities committed by toxic leaders, such as major economic downturns, corporate scandals, and war. Dr. Justino wants to provide the information hundreds of studies (including his own) have produced on the subject, but in a way that communicates well beyond academia.
