Music Applause narcissist it sounds nasty doesn't it like an open losing sore painful to experience social narcissism reflects our current cultural reality its growth is an increasing challenge to businesses worldwide the word narcissism stems from Greek mythology narcissus a young hunter and an exceptionally handsome man one day tired from hunting and the heat he lies by a splendid spring as he's drinking the water he sees his beautiful image he falls madly in love he refuses to drink for fear that his lovely image will disappear in time he wastes away still enamored with himself and his death is marked by the growth of a single flower a narcissus in our unmissable world we are surrounded by these selfish thirsty beings like our parched Greek friend they are addicted to feeling special admiration is everything and if left unchecked this cyst boils over into feelings of entitlement blame overeating one's abilities lashing out at criticism arrogance and bullying with very little room for empathy you all know one you might even be sitting beside one you might even be one well one thing we know for sure is that their numbers are increasing a 30-year study reviewed the narcissistic and empathetic traits of college students in the 1980s when the study began the numbers were pretty good 30 percent showed high traits of narcissism with 70 percent showing traits of empathy 30 years later into our millennial generation the inverse is true they found that 70 percent of the students had high narcissistic traits and only 30% had traits of empathy this is not to suggest that all Millennials are narcissists but it does tell us that the tendencies are much higher than generations that have gone before why do we care about that well because 40 percent of our current workforce are Millennials in 2030 this number is going to go up to 75 percent this is a real challenge but not all narcissists are created equal there's special ones they've estimated that 1% of the population that's one in a hundred are pathological these people have narcissistic personality disorder they are insecure sociopaths I like to equate them in the plant world as an invasive species they don't really fit into any environment system especially a work one next in line is our extreme narcissist it's estimated that this is between 6 to 10% of the population these people are very special to although not pathological they are extremely toxic I like to equate them to a poison ivy they're best left alone and untouched the next grouping is our garden variety these people aren't so bad they're the mild two mediums and with a little bit of management a little bit of cultivation a little bit of care they can have very good qualities they can be incredibly driven they can be very gauging very charming confident and quite honestly they can get stuff done now nobody really knows exactly why this growth and narcissism has occurred but the speculation is that it stems from our individualistic and introspective post-war culture this has also changed parenting techniques where kids are micro managed while the parents are missing in action where praise is given to raise self-esteem and every kid gets a trophy also there's no free play and instead we have a very early adoption of an exposure to media so what regardless of the cause these people can be extremely difficult to employ and even harder to work for but they're not going away so how do we as business owners as managers leverage these challenging personalities to ensure that we have successful businesses and positive working environments the first step is to hire accordingly in this situation you must know that these personality types exist you must watch for it by doing so you can help to screen and weed out those 10% the pathological and the extreme narcissists we know that those personality types are extremely toxic and unproductive in the workplace even as leaders additionally when you're screening you need to identify not only the job skills that are required but the personal skills that complement that job by doing so you can actually use the strengths of these personalities to your advantage we know that they're extremely persuasive we know that they function well as Islands in and of themselves we know that they can be very engaging and they are also extremely dedicated so by marrying the personality skills with the job itself you can ensure greater success next define your environment you must lead and empower the leaders if you don't lead the narcissus will weeds grow in cracks so make sure you have strong leadership additionally create a clan like environment this is a team cohesive spirit the greater good rules make sure you have a group group success is your measurement for all individuals by doing so you can ensure a much greater powerful workforce Google and Facebook are brilliant at this additionally they need to be fed and they need to be fed constantly and frequently we need to water them with praise we need to give them raises and incentives again frequently not as a lump sum again we need to appraise them as well and give them constant feedback on how they're doing and nudge them and keep them interact with the group goals finally we need to create a supportive work environment not only for the narcissistic personalities but for everybody else by doing so you can ensure that there's a good communication and if there's behavior that's offside that it can be checked quickly and without any kind of penalties that to those people reporting them next you need to clearly set your expectations not only defining the job skills required but the overall workplace behavior that's acceptable to you the more specific you are with examples the better off you are this again has to be reinforced frequently
