It is important to know how to skip hiring bullies, liars, the passive- aggressive people and the sociopaths because these people will damage your workplace culture, create complaints and can even cause lawsuits on both their own behalf and from other employees. Managing them is an almost full time job that requires copious and accurate documentation while watching your own back every day.
Not something, most managers have the time or inclination to do. Once you know what to look for it is downright easy to skip hiring bullies, liars, the passive - aggressive people and the sociopaths.
This webinar provides tips on how to identify attributes of positive psychology, how to judge if a person is genuine or fake so that you avoid hiring bullies.
Why should you Attend:
Hiring people is the most important thing employers do. When you hire a person for your company, your decision will not just affect how that person performs that job, it will affect how everyone in their work group(s) performs their jobs as well.
The bullies, the liars, the passive - aggressive people and the sociopaths are the four types of people, who will ruin ethical, hardworking and talented people right out the door of an organization regardless of compensation, benefits, perks and work life balance.
Had the employer known for what to look and the right questions to ask, they could have easily known to skip getting to know that person any further.
Experts estimate that roughly, 1 in 25 Americans is a sociopath and one study alleges narcissism is growing a rate relative to the growth of obesity!
