Tip #1 on Workplace Conflict and Narcissists
Be prepared to be thrown under the bus when dealing with Narcissists. You read this right! They are great at deflecting any responsibility especially when someone confronts them. Remember the Narcissist is like a 2-year old who has a tantrum or blames someone else when others show dissatisfaction with him or her. Protect yourself or support others who may be attacked by this difficult person. Don’t take the conversation with the Narcissist personal. This idea is so hard to follow because Narcissists are infuriating to work or live with. You may not change the results when you have an interaction with the Narcissist BUT you will retain self-respect when you do your best NOT to get pulled into their web.

Joyce’s Thoughts on Workplace Conflict and Narcissists
I hear many of you describe how infuriating it is to work or live with a Narcissist. I am in the process of researching this personality disorder even deeper to give you more strategies. Remember to use the GAP technique (do a search on my blog for many articles on this important skill). Take a step back when a Narcissist tries to attack you or pull you into their web. Decide how you want to respond to this person. I find that the GAP has saved me many times and it gets me in trouble when I don’t use it! 🙂 You don’t need to say anything, you can change the conversation or you may want to have an adult conversation with him or her. The main idea is to decide what you want to say or not say. You will thank me when you use the GAP.
I want to hear from you!
