Steve Jobs, Dov Charney, Lance Armstrong, Donald Trump. Each one has reached the pinnacle of American success. What else do they have in common? They’re known for being mean. Drawing on author Mark Lipton’s extensive experience as adviser to major corporations, start-ups, government agencies, and not-for-profits, Mean Men synthesizes decades of psychological research to expose what really drives this subset of America’s leaders. As surprising as it is alarming, the book reveals dark truths about a psychological disorder that rules many of our boardrooms, and challenges the status quo with a more effective humanistic approach to leadership.

Mark Lipton, professor of management at Milano - The New School, author, and c-suite adviser, will lead the conversation on themes from his new book, Mean Men, available September 5th.

He is past President of both the International Society for the Psychoanalytic Study of Organizations and the Center for the Study of Groups and Social Systems in Boston. He is currently President of the International Dialogue Initiative, an interdisciplinary group that studies the psychodynamics of societal conflict.
