What happens when the perfect ingredients come together and form a toxic brew rather than a dream team? When the high-performance leader meets their perfect match in the committed and ambitious high-potential employee, sometimes we don’t get the results we expect. Rather than creating a high-performance team, sometimes the result is toxic levels of stress, workplace distress, and broken careers. The key to high performance lies in a workplace culture that promotes and rewards truth, accountability, respect, safety, and rich two-way communication.
During this session we will:
• Explore the concept of toxic workplace, including symptoms to look for
• Explore how individual strengths and pitfalls contribute to toxic workplace
• Look at the costs of toxic workplace
• Explore real-life examples of what organizations can do to detoxify
