Managing Toxic Behaviors in the Workplace

Every workplace has them - the negative, intimidating, mean-spirited, or difficult people who make your work life uncomfortable. You can't escape these people-they're part of your everyday routine. Learning how to deal with toxic people in the workplace will help you achieve respect and success among your colleagues.

During this session the attendees will:

  1. Learn to control the communication process with a difficult person
  2. Be able to identify the toxic behaviors of others
  3. Identify self-behaviors to manage the situation
