Identify the narcissists in the workplace
This is a personality type you don't want in your team.

Company managers and leaders are often loved or hated. Studies show that many of them are domineering, however, there is another personality type that often flies under the radar and can be toxic to the work environment: the narcissists. They’re characterised by needing attention and admiration, and having an exaggerated sense of self-importance. These are often the type of managers who can be extremely difficult to deal with.

As a company, no matter the size, it is important that you identify such personality traits to ensure the happiness and efficiency of your employees and retain your workforce. While such managers are often manipulative because of which they can be hard to identify, there are some factors you can keep in mind to notice them; they often give mixed signals, play the blame game, look out only for their interest and find it difficult to handle pressure.
