Effectively managing employees who claim to be sick or injured remains a significant and costly issue for employers. But help is at hand.
Do you dread having to sit your employees down to deliver ‘bad news’ for them about their performance? Do you put off having difficult conversations with your employees as a result?
Individuals suffering from Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), more commonly known as ‘narcissists’, can wreak absolute havoc on your business. Others who are more borderline as to whether they have a personality disorder, can also be difficult to handle.
