How to Negotiate with a Narcissist Tip #1
#1. Leave Your Ego at the Door.
Your intent is to make the other side look good. That may mean that you may have to look bad. It is really like acting. Your role is to make the other side look good no matter what transpires.
Be totally focused so that the other side's bad behavior does not get "under your skin," or that the other side does not get "into your head." Do not let your ego or emotions interfere with resolving your dispute with a narcissist.
