Not all narcissists are the same. Some act that way due to super low self esteem. Others think they are the greatest thing on earth and never wrong. Mostly the latter. In general, you are not going to change them. Set clear expectations and don’t react. Try to keep it light. They LOVE to manipulate and upset people. Remember who they are and who you are not. That is really all you can do.

There were a few on a team that I was working with. Each one different than the next. The manager and I decided to do DISC coupled with EQ with the team for their development. This kind of training really brings awareness by leveraging outside feedback. It was successful for us! We have seen positive changes.

Any quick fixes on burnouts? Have been working at least 200% since September last year. I have multiple big deadlines all due today, and I have been writing slides while crying for the last 2 hours – it’s just slow and painful. Need to pull myself together and just do the work because well, I need the job, and in this economy no one else is hiring.
