Everyone has likely met a know-it-all at some time in their work life. A know-it-all is that person who no matter what the subject, they always seem to have an opinion.
They feel they are the final authority on every subject, and they leave no room for debate.
The backlash of being a know-it-all, however, is that by proclaiming you know something about everything, eventually, many believe you know very little about anything. A know-it-all’s work suffers because they rarely listen enough to gain understanding and their opinions are discounted.
