Why do we seem to be attracted to narcissistic leaders? Even with all the writing lately about how harmful narcissistic leaders are to organizations, we don’t seem to be able to shake their allure. More disturbingly, would we know how to detect narcissism within ourselves?
We continue our series on Power in the Church by talking with Chuck DeGroat about narcissism in the church, and how it relates to the way we hold power.
