Overview:Psychopaths make up 1% to 4% of the population. While serial killers tend to get the most press, the higher concentration of psychopaths in leadership positions and businesses is a pervasive problem in the workplace.

Tips will be provided on how to best interview individuals to detect people with this personal disorder before they are hired.
