A “brilliant jerk” is a team member who does an exceptional job delivering competency-based results, but isn't able to get along well with others. These brilliant jerks permeate the workplace while reducing their leaders’ credibility, lowering their teams’ morale, and reducing their teams’ productivity.

  • Recognize the common character traits of brilliant jerks.
