How to Work With a Narcissist


Narcissists don’t have the telltale signs of a crazy person. 

They’re not sitting at coffee shops writing manifestos on napkins in an illegible scrawl, shouting about aliens. They are often charming, talented, attractive people who have a natural allure to them. 

A narcissist in the workplace can work wonders at times. 

They can be great motivators and group leaders, with a flair for inspiring others. …until they lose interest or something doesn’t go their way. To cope… 

  • Manage your own ego and your expectations! 
  • Manage your need to win, to prove yourself right. 
  • Recognize you may walk away feeling crazy, as narcissists are expert argument manipulators and logic twisters. 
  • Pick your battles.
