    Topic: Narcissism in the Workplace

    The workplace of today is full of interpersonal dynamics that can be highly rewarding and at times, very challenging or worse, damaging.

    One of the most difficult workplace behaviors to contend with is Narcissism.  At the very least it can be confusing.  At the very worse, it can feel threatening and can negatively impact your organization in obvious and less-than-obvious ways.  

    The term Narcissism is used very often however few people have been trained to fully understand what the behavior is, what the implications for it are and what are some techniques one can use in dealing with this challenging behavior.  

    This workshop will be co-taught by an author & clinical psychologist of two books on Narcissism and a Leadership expert. Together they will present a framework to help to understand and effectively react to this frequently occurring workplace behavior.

    Specific development goals will be encouraged for each attendee to include in his/her Individual Development Plan.

    Speakers: Stephen Gianotti & Patricia King
