How to handle a Selfish Taker
Recently I read an article by Adam Grant: How to Change a Selfish Person's Stripes?
This article talks about Selfish Takers we meet in various areas of our life, especially at work. People who want more, more & more for me, me & me.
He shares some simple practical ways to handle and turn around such people.
How does one know whether he/she is also behaving like a selfish taker? This article had a link to a self-assessment questionnaire, whose title you may find controversial: A**hole rating self exam!!!
As I attempted this 24-question survey, I found it to be an effective way to self-realization. I bought the book by the same author to know more. “The No A**hole Rule” by Bob Sutton is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today and Business Week bestseller.
I invite you to fill this survey first for a person who you find it very difficult to relate to. And maybe for yourself as well to gain some useful insights. Best would be to get your candid peer friend fill it for you.
