How To Deal With The Narcissist
Although flattery is a great way to boost their ego and make peace with them, you can stick to some general praise and appreciation. This will make things easier for you, especially if they are high up in the hierarchy.
If you must criticize their actions or confront their behavior, make sure you begin by offering positive feedback first and then gently shift towards criticism.
Have realistic expectations from the narcissist. Make sure not to get into situations or positions where they can take credit for your work or criticize you.
The workplace can be a weird yet amazing place you will find yourself in.
It is filled with awe-inspiring individuals with unique skills, talents, and personalities. Chances are you have already encountered one or more of these toxic coworkers and now you know how you can deal with them. Simply start with effective communication and maintaining boundaries.
Once you can identify the personality of a co-worker, you will be able to better manage yourself, your work and your professional relationships while safeguarding your well-being and your career.
