Free Webinar: How to Successfully Work with a Narcissist

The superiority, domination, and aggression a narcissist exhibits in the workplace are intimidation tactics designed to establish power and control.

This only adds to the ascendancy of the narcissist.

But there is another more effective way of handling a narcissist. Christine Hammond has personal and professional experience in successfully managing the narcissist.

Symposium: The Wisdom of Happiness All in One Place
