The article discusses the leadership constructs which are the basis for leadership development and leadership effectiveness. Of the 25 constructs, it was found out that failed executives show predictable patterns that cluster into 19 dark sides personality types and extreme highs and lows on any of the 25 constructs can result in unproductive or destructive leadership behavior. The article also describes different extremist dark side archetypes, deceiver archetypes and bridge burner archetypes.
