Toxic Behaviors in Colleagues and Bosses: Strategies for Civility in the Workplace
You’ve probably heard stories from friends, family members, or colleagues who quit a job because of a toxic person – someone who belittles, humiliates, shames, or bullies others. Maybe you’ve even left a job because of such a person. Toxic employees not only take a toll on their coworkers’ emotional psyches but the financial outcomes of their organizations as well.
In this SoundPractice episode, Cheryl Toth digs into the issue of handling toxic team members and bosses with Mitchell Kusy, PhD., the author of Why I Don’t Work Here Anymore. Kusy is a professor in the Graduate School of Leadership and Change at Antioch University and an international consultant to leadership. He presents research, evidence-based tactics, and concrete examples of how to restore workplace civility and increase financial performance after toxic employees leave an organization. Dr. Kusy’s latest article will appear in the Sep/Oct issue of Physician Leadership Journal; link below.
