Abstract

This study will focus on the dark side of leaders by determining which traits make an awful leader and which personality traits will lead to a leader’s failure. The Hogan Developmental Survey will be exceptionally helpful in determining which personality traits the subjects encompass that could lead to a derail in their careers. With the use of ROTC cadets on the Missouri S&T campus as subjects, this study will examine leaders in training to determine if dysfunctional leaders can be caught early on in their training.
