How do you manage a narcissistic employee?
It is absolutely essential that you first be sure that your employee is in fact a narccissistic individual or else your remedy for the situation may just end up alienating a normal healthy person who is adapting to the relative dysfunction (stress) of the office environment that you have become accustomed to.
Discuss the problem openly and courteously with the employee in a private situation with another impartial person present. Lay out your complaint in a simple language. Do not be confrontational. Nerves are already frayed, you do not want to exacerbate the situation, you want to resolve it.
It is easy to jump to conclusions and label individuals who you don't get along with as narccissistic, arrogant, stupid, ignorant and so on, but doing so, does not ultimately lead to a constructive conclusion or a productive working environment.
Conflict in the workplace is a complex matter and should be dealt with by professionals who have the knowledge, training or experience to manage situations like these.
Professional advice is particularly important when dealing with a true narcissist. A true narcissist is very different from someone who is self-centered but can acknowledge mistakes, or someone who gets angry when crossed but can empathize with other's feelings.
Most people don't even know they are dealing with a narcissist until it is too late, including supervisors who, to the narcissist, are just stepping stones in the career ladder. The outward persona of many narcissists is quite charming and they quickly make friends. The important difference between them and a normal easily-likeable person is that once you get to know them, you find out that all their emotions revolve around maintaining their self-image, and they will do anything to preserve that image, including destroying the people around them who may threaten it.
Because they are so charming, they are often able to disguise poor work performance to others, depending on their charm to get ahead. Supervisors who attempt to address a narcissist's poor work performance directly may soon find their own job in jeopardy because the narcissist has been charming the supervisor's boss behind the scenes, and spreading lies and undermining the supervisor's authority with other employees.
If you are a supervisor dealing with a real narcissist, talk to your own managers and human resources department first. Make sure you have people on your side so that if you end up a target, you'll have help.
Always have another person with you to witness any disciplinary conversations with a narcissist. In your conversation with the narcissist, emphasize their good points. The problem behaviour needs to be addressed as a simple infraction, like forgetting to turn your car lights on when it gets dark, or accidentally turning into a one-way street. Emphasize the rewards of changing the behaviour and discuss the consequences of not changing it in a simple matter-of-fact way. End the conversation with some appreciative remarks.
Most important, document everything and stay in contact with your own management and human resources professionals regarding the issues.

Have individuals within the firm or organization engage in educational and research activities related to time management, such as enrolling in college courses, checking the I…nternet, participating in correspondence courses, and/or attending seminars
Discussion and participation between managers and his team. For example, if there is a problem, the manager does not make the decision all by himself, he and his team come out… with a solution together as a team and try to solve the problem. There is not so much of a hierarchy here, instead they focus more on the flat organization side and they encourage participation and ideas from everybody.
Very difficult, it can work, but make sure 1. the manager or other part is serious 2. you make it clear to all colleagues you are not sleeping your way up 3. you do not openly… show your affection in the office or flaunt your relationship in front of customers 4. talk about situations in which the manager might have to give the employee an order he/she does not like and how to react in public in such a situation 5. do not be disrespectful, that is make sure the team feeling between the employees is not endangered 6. always remind yourself not to take advantage of your relationship by asking for favors or special treatment you would not have received otherwise Besides being in love, that's a lot to keep in mind, but if you both do, your relationship can work. GOOD LUCK
relation between the manager and the employees
Yes, almost always. However the term 'employee' generally means someone who has an employment contract with the firm, and this might not always be the case with a managing dir…ector - they might have a consulting agreement although that is probably less common. The term 'managing director' (which is used in many countries including the UK) generally means the same as 'chief executive officer' (a term that originated in the USA). As the title suggests, the managing director is a member of the board of directors, but may not be the chair of the board (in UK businesses these roles are usually split). The managing director in most businesses would be the most senior executive post: the person who leads the company on a day to day basis and reports to the board of directors. However note that in some professional services businesses the job title of 'managing director' is sometimes given to less senior people.
People who work for workforce management companies are hired to come in and help evaluate the productivity of certain companies. They may then recommend staff cuts that won't …harm productivity and hopefully will save the company money.
