Posted on Sep 14 2015 under Previous Programs, Workplace Bullying



Mitchell Kusy - Elizathbeth Hollowayzena ZumetaControl freaks, narcissists, manipulators, and bullies. It takes all kinds, they say, but can your organization afford to employ such toxic personalities? Often clever chameleons, who “kiss up” and “kick down,” they know how and when to disguise their infectiously bad natures. Like a disease, these employees spread negativity throughout the workplace, decreasing productivity and increasing turnover. In this program, Drs. Holloway and Kusy will share their national research study of toxic behaviors with over 400 participants. Learn why these individuals get away with bad behavior, how this occurs in organizations, and what to do about it to impact individual and team performance—and the bottom line.
