Dealing with Difficult People: The Know-It-All

Dealing with Difficult People: The Know-It-All | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
Got a know-it-all in your life who knows everything except, perhaps, how to act like a real human being? Read on for tips on how to deal.
Anne Egros's insight:

 

According to the author of this article, Susan Davis, the Know It All (KIAs) are part of the most difficult people in the world to deal with, along with :

 

*The bullies

*The stealth destroyers

*The "yes" people

**The complainers

*The martyrs

 

 There are KIAs everywhere but it is particularly annoying when this type of person is your boss, employee or co-worker.

 

So what can you do when you are engaged in a dead end conversation with a KIA or worse with a clique of KIAs?

 

No matter what you say, those people will never be interested in your ideas if they don't think like you. They usually use criticism, condescending or sarcastic tone and even try to intimidate you..

 

KIA people lack basic emotional intelligence and are self-defensive trying to exclude anybody who are not admiring their intelligence or agree with their truth or faith.

 

As much as possible  stay calm and relaxed not trying to argue at all. You will  always lose  if you try to battle with their ego. In addition, it is not good for your heart and well-being as you may feel frustrated and angry.

 

In case having a conversation is unavoidable, then ask the KIA person questions about their field of expertise  they will be more than happy to teach you something.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, November 14, 2013 12:43 PM

Relational, contextual, and values based are very important. Althought contextual includes situational, I would make it explicit. Who is the best leader in this situation needs to be voiced?

Don Cloud's curator insight, November 4, 2013 10:22 AM

It should be obvious that building and reinforcing an organizational culture takes many people, and leaders at every level play a fundamental roll.  That said, I think this article hits the nail on the head by emphasizing that culture is "something that we do" ... and not something that can be proceduralized -- it's more art and less science -- it's more indirect influence and less direct supervision -- it matters a lot but there's no shortcut to quickly creating a good culture.

Lousy Leaders Coddle

Lousy Leaders Coddle | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
Coddling leaders are safe; compassionate leaders dangerous. Coddling, like all leadership behaviors, reflects attitudes about yourself and others. Coddling isn’t compassionate it’s needy, misguided...
Anne Egros's insight:

It is true that knowledge and experience are often on the way of creativity and therefore prevent other people to experiment and grow. We learn from our failures more than from successes.

 

Compassion unlike coddling encourages people to try new things and to step out of their comfort zone with confidence even if it hurts or if they get some bruises on the way.

 

You don't learn to bike by seeing others doing it, falling is part of the learning process and compassion is like the helmet and the protection gear to make sure you don't get permanent damages.

5 Signs Your Leadership Style Is Outdated
Forbes
Many leaders in the workplace have lost their competitive edge. They lack the substance that is required to be an effective and sustainable leader.
Anne Egros's insight:

Technology is spreading new ideas globally and so fast that knowledge is not anymore the advantage of leaders.

 

Knowledge is free but inspiring others comes with a cost: you must re-invent yourself to stay attuned with changes around you. 

 

Never before, we have seen three generation of leaders in the same workplace. The 20-30 challenge up the 35-45 and the late baby boomers 50+ may not be able to satisfy the needs of those who are changing the world around them.

 

Making bad decisions? You may have become so arrogant and blinded by your past success that you don't have the humility to listen to your team members. 

 

When is the last time you took time to think about your impact as a leader? Did you ask for feedback from bottom-up? Are you interested only in your own career advancement? 

 

Asking questions is more powerful than giving answers, do you know how to mentor and coach others around you so they enjoy what they do and don't call it work?

Great scoop and fantastic insight Anne!  I have seen some senior leaders put in great efforts to update their leadership.  It is great to see!

donhornsby's curator insight, October 29, 2013 8:27 AM

(From the article): Leadership is all about taking risks and knowing when to take them.   If you don’t feel comfortable being uncomfortable  – courageous enough to see and seize opportunities that others don’t and do what others won’t – it is impossible to be  an effective leader.   These are the fundamentals of sustainable leadership.   So look around you and ask yourself the following question:  Has your leadership style become outdated?

Menno Molendijk's curator insight, October 30, 2013 4:30 AM

Stay in tune. With the people around you. And yourself.

Positive affirmations works great in an environment where we feel comfortable already.

 

Evaluate the worse case scenario by using "negative thinking" and explore opportunities then solutions will often provide better results under stress. Indeed as explained in this interesting article, by anticipating this worst case scenario the power of anxiety and stress from the situation lessens.
