The Dark Side of Leadership is the combination of our inner urges, compulsions and dysfunctions, cloaked in an outer persona we present to the world. Our Dark Side can be a source of motivation for achievement, but if not progressively understood and processed, it can also be a source of friction and failure in our life and leadership. Carl Jung, referring to the dark side, said "The brighter the persona, the darker the shadow". Virtually all moral and ethical failures experienced by leaders can be attributed, at least in some way, to the dark side of their personality. Moreover, the dark side is also the root cause of much organizational chaos and cultural dysfunction.
