The Toxic Workplace
Managing the Most Challenging Employees
Learn how to manage “problem” employees and turn negative attitudes and performances into positives!
Workplaces are full of toxic employees, exhibiting destructive behaviors and poisoning the entire organization.
As a manager, you deal with it all day every day – from complaining, gossiping, and conflicts, to giving little to no effort on projects. And their effect on other team members can often determine the success of your organization – the negativity can quickly overpower team morale, collaboration, and productivity, leaving you to pick up the pieces.
Managing all that is a tough job. As the leader, it’s your job to build and protect a healthy office environment and to find out how to get the most out of some talented people who have “difficult” personalities.
Fortunately, with the right training and tools you can learn how to effectively manage these “problem” employees and turn these negative attitudes and performances into positives!
