Are you a manager or director who wants to help your direct reports handle their own conflict in the workplace?
Do you work with a colleague who is selfish and doesn’t help your team?
If so, don’t go anywhere! This post and video will help you understand how you or others react to these difficult people…especially the narcissist.
The video below is about New Ways to Cope with a Difficult Person.
Different Ways That We Cope With Difficult People
- Fighting or countering the attack
- Fleeing or avoiding the situation
- Giving in or surrendering to the threat
Why is it so Hard to Deal with a Narcissist?
- What’s with me?
- Am I simply a masochist?
- How can I allow myself to be so fooled?
- Why can’t I speak up and tell him/her to…?
The Danger of the Narcissist’s Charm
- Their wit can be hypnotizing
- They’re very clever and encourage you to be forgiving when he or she is out of line
If a narcissist is in your personal life, you may be attracted because of this characteristic.
Thoughts From Joyce
- Remember that we need to protect ourselves from the narcissist’s charm in order to get out of their dangerous web.
- Once we realize what is happening we can set boundaries and decide what we need to do.
