Narcissists in the Workplace - Travis Kalanick Formerly of Uber
Show Notes

According to the book “Dangerous Personalities” by former FBI profiler Joe Navarro, Narcissistic personalities only care for themselves, their needs, and their priorities. While you and I appreciate attention, the narcissist craves it and manipulates people and situations to get it. While you and I work hard to be successful, the narcissistic personality connives to succeed and may cheat, lie, embellish the truth, or scheme to get ahead, uncaring of how others are affected.

In this episode, we are going to talk about Travis Kalanick, the former CEO of Uber.
 e
We also offer tips on how to spot these in the workplace, and what to do after an encounter with one.
