Difficult personalities in the workplace

How to supervise and work effectively with them

Original Title

Les personnalités particulières au travail Comment les superviser et collaborer efficacement avec elles

An essential book for anyone dealing with a difficult personality in the workplace.

Sooner or later, managers, human resources advisors, bosses and colleagues find themselves dealing with an employee with a difficult personality. As the months go by, managers caught in this situation start to notice a decline in empathy, a lack of resources, and a sense of doubt about their competencies. Colleagues also shift from an understanding attitude to a feeling of powerlessness.
In this book, Monique Bessette and Marie-Christine Gran propose a way to intervene with employees with a personality disorder. For the first time, proven concepts are simplified and made easy to understand. In this book, managers, administrators and colleagues will find many tools for early detection and intervention, as well as ways to get back to normal when tensions or conflicts erupt. By learning to better understand the inner universe of these difficult employees, everyone can establish limits and regain their empathy. This is a book that provides pragmatic responses to a complex reality.
