As a leadership consultant who studies workplace psychology, I’ve spent more than 30 years helping thousands of individuals navigate tough relationships.

I’ve found that one of the most difficult personality types to deal with are highly insecure people. These are the folks who find comfort in stable and predictable environments. They prefer security and despise changes. But change is a necessity for success.

2. “I’ve already tried this [or something similar], but it didn’t work.”
