powerpath
 n.— «One in 10 Australian managers are deceitful, cold-hearted manipulators bent on attaining power for its own sake, new research shows. Devoid of empathy, they are reckless and leave a trail of wrecked careers, corporate destruction and a legacy of fear. A psychotherapist with the consultancy Banks Management Group, Dr. Glyn Brokensha, has coined the term “powerpath” to describe such managers to differentiate them from criminal psychopaths.» —“Beware the office powerpath—the boss who leaves a trail of destruction” by Nick O’Malley Sydney Morning Herald (Australia) Mar. 22, 2005.
