About The Event
Like an infectious virus, toxic behaviors can spread their venom like wildfire throughout organizations if left to smolder. You have to be able to spot the road signs before you can take action.
Getting rid of them isn’t as easy as declaring “you’re fired.” Often clever chameleons, who “kiss up” and “knock down,” they know how and when to disguise their infectiously bad natures.
They can flourish with a “perfect storm” brewing as toxic behaviors can be encouraged by individuals by those least suspected—people who enable them to get away with bad behavior. You’ll discover how these “toxic protectors” and “toxic buffers” need to be considered a first line of action.
In his national study of over 400 individuals and latest book, Why I Don’t Work Here Anymore, Dr. Kusy demonstrates how these behaviors reduce job satisfaction, build a hostile work setting, increase turnover, lower morale, and impact the bottom line. This webinar demonstrates what to do, how to do it, and why—not based on intuition but hard research data.
Traditional strategies for handling toxic personalities—reducing interactions with them, taking away their responsibilities, excluding them from important decision-making, reconfiguring the organizational structure, and giving them standard feedback rarely work. And while many leaders believe firing is the answer, Dr. Kusy shows how this is difficult to fire someone who is productive. Until now. This webinar demonstrates how calculating the cost of toxic people (even productive ones) is a first call to action before firing!
This quote from his research study demonstrates the impact these toxic individuals have on the rest of us: “The day this person left our company is an annual holiday!” Don’t let this happen to you or anyone in your organization! This webinar demonstrates how to do something now!
