A consulting company I work with watches out for "organizational psychopaths" and will decline to continue working with the company when such a person is identified.

If I remember correctly, there are two types. One who protects his kingdom, even to the detriment of the organization as a whole. And the other whose whole life is defined by fighting fires -- the very fires that are going to vanish as a result of the change being implemented.

Many bad bosses are not full blown "psychopaths" (I relalize you are using this term in a general way) but are just ignorant, were trained by other bad bosses, or lack self-confidence.
