The Narcissist

May 14th, 2012 at 12:00 -1:00 p.m. EST

Herb Rappaport


Do you have someone in your sphere of influence who you’d say is “all about (Jack)?” You might even use the term narcissist when referring to that person. Have you wondered what you could do to be more effective with your Jack?

In this second of a series of interviews, Dr. Herbert Rappaport, PhD. will be illuminating us on the continuum of behaviors, from the critical normal degree of self-worth to the clinical distinction of narcissism. We will talk specifically about:

  • Key behavioral traits of the true narcissist.
  • Healthy levels in the middle of the spectrum.
  • When low levels create dysfunction at work.
  • When high-normal levels of narcissistic traits are critical to success.
  • The “criticism paradox” with narcissists.
  • What we can do to be effective with someone we assess as “all about himself.”

Join us for this fun, dynamic discussion that will open your eyes and mind to dealing with your key stakeholders along the continuum of narcissism.
