The Optimum Talent website’s Optimum Talks Blog has a superb post by Frances Sardone, titled: “You’ll Never Survive Working for a Narcissistic Leader – Here’s Why“.The last line in their post really struck home for me. It was: “Can you work for a Narcissist? No, you can’t. No one can and remain healthy.“.
I have read posts on websites about working with a Narcissist Boss, which implied that you can change the Boss. Sorry, but I strongly disagree. IMHO, you cannot fix that which is hardwired differently in the brain of the Narcissist. Many Trained and very Experienced Therapists state that they cannot change a Narcissist. Good Luck getting a Narcissist to go to a Therapist asking for Help. The one course of action which an employee of a Narcissistic Boss, which works, is to Go No Contact – Quit without notice and never come back.
