Being In A Toxic Relationship
We tend to consider harmful individuals in terms of their general negativity and tendency to chop you down. In close relationships, they make you doubt yourself, so you’re afraid to assert your rights.
At work, though, the venomous people that supervise you show their aggressiveness and hostility within the variety of those constant demands that keep you in worry of losing your job if you complain or object.
Their power over you is absolute, and they recognise they will get away with making your life miserable. Your friends and family tell you that you simply look haggard and stressed, and you recognise your mental, if not physical, health is suffering.
Preying On The Silent
Throughout all this, you will marvel at how the harmful people that rose to the highest managed to succeed in their positions. How do harmful individuals get ahead? The key to their “success” lies in their personalities, besides their impression-management skills.
There is substantial proof that low honesty-humility does a decent job of capturing such qualities as egotism, materialism, social “adroitness,” unethical choices at work, delinquency and counterproductive behaviour within the workplace, and lack of integrity.
Their choices are selfish; they're vindictive, and they cheat and lie. You would possibly suppose their harmful tendencies would limit their ability to succeed in the workplace, however, paradoxically, a number of these harmful people are rewarded with the very best salaries and job promotions of all.
Demonstrate Your Abilities
What are you able to do knowing that your venomous boss made it to the highest by virtue of his or her dark personality? Clearly, there’s very little you'll be able to do to unseat this person, unless you are able to demonstrate out and out harassment or mistreatment and then can take legal action.
Instead, you brush up your political savvy and, though you may find it troublesome to try and do, play the impression-management game. You'll be able to also, if you would like to take the honest route, make sure that your ability to be an honest team player shines through in your performance evaluations, where your collegiality wins the day.
Fulfilment at work, as well as in close relationships, depends on having the ability to possess pleasant, non-toxic interactions. If you’re cursed with the opposite, your fulfilment may well be less than ideal. However, your ability to succeed doesn’t need to suffer.
