Some websites that may be helpful:

 

http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-dance-connection/200906/surviving-difficult-people-work

 

http://careerplanning.about.com/od/bosscoworkers/a/difficultpeople.htm

 

http://humanresources.about.com/od/workrelationships/a/difficultpeople.htm

 

http://www.innovateonline.net/free/articles-on-psychological-well-being/dealing-with-difficult-people-at-work

 

I am not familiar with the website Helium, but that does not mean it would not be useful to you. You could pick and chose what information you find useful from it. You may want to read some of the books and websites first to familiarize yourself on what is helpful and what is not.
