Anyone who has ever had a job recognizes that certain personality styles can make our working lives a challenge. This can happen whether we are in an entry-level job, or in the C-suite, and it can happen in any type of employment situation. These personality styles can also become one more issue to manage at work, and pull us away from more pressing issues related to our jobs and advancement in our careers. Disruptive personalities are inevitable, and learning how to protect yourself, your mental health, and your professional development under these conditions is essential.

Roundtable objectives:

  • Understand what a disruptive personality style looks like and how it may affect you
  • Become familiar with a 10-step plan designed to give you the tools to manage disruptive personalities
