Find Ways to Learn from Your Boss
Finding ways to learn from a self-obsessed boss is challenging. However, by doing so, you can put the relationship in a more professional light. While you’re learning how to manage your distance to protect yourself and keep your self-esteem in check, you also want to find the admirable qualities that you can learn from them.
Narcissists have a mental illness, but this doesn’t mean they are entirely “bad” or “corrupt” individuals. They are still human and can easily persuade people so they like them or they get their way. They usually find themselves in higher professional positions because they know how to communicate well and be visionaries. Notice the complementary characteristics your boss has that will help improve your career.
