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. No one is perfect but when you hire truly dysfunctional people, passive aggressive people or sociopaths, they will have effects on everything and everyone with which they come into contact, including your customers.
While no one wears a T-shirt advertising their dysfunction, it’s really so simple to avoid hiring these people that you have to wonder why every employer has at least one of these types of people working for them, often in a management role. While they don’t wear T-shirts they are easy to pick out if you know what to look for and how to talk to them.
One only has to look to social media to see how bullying and harassment in the workplace has exploded not just in frequency but viciousness. Sadly for many people lying has become commonplace. One usually needs only to look around the office to see how corrosive are the effects of passive aggressive people.
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!
