How to Deal With a Narcissistic Leader

How to Deal With a Narcissistic Leader | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

If you're working under a narcissistic leader, you know that nothing creates a more poisonous work environment. It may seem impossible to overcome, but take heart: It really can be done.

Perhaps the best advice in dealing with a narcissistic leader is the last line: "Don't get caught up in other people's stories but do your best with the situation you are in. If all else fails, remove yourself before the toxicity does lasting damage."

Critical Thinking Takes Courage

Critical Thinking Takes Courage | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

Critical thinking isn't an entirely natural process; it's one that requires courage.

(From the article): To think critically requires you to aggregate knowledge, form some kind of understanding, get inside the mind of the clockmaker, judge their work, and then articulate it all for a specific form (e.g., argumentative essay) and audience (e.g., teacher).

Lisa McCarthy's curator insight, June 25, 2014 8:21 AM

A really excellent article on something that can be hard to define and practice, and yet is such an essential skill for life.   I really like the distinction Terry Heick makes between thought and knowledge and the interplay between them.

Javier Antonio Bellina's curator insight, June 25, 2014 11:38 AM

El pensamiento crítico requiere coraje, actitud y valor que no se fomenta en los sistemas educativos en general debido a los riesgos que conlleva.

(From the article): Most importantly, every day that you display weak character, you’re letting yourself down. You must answer to your conscience every minute of every day. As Theodore Roosevelt said, “I care not what others think of what I do, but I care very much about what I think of what I do! That is character!”
