More than 70 million workers in the United States have reported that they either endure or actively hate their job. People are increasingly describing their workplace as a toxic environment, and the levels of negativity, pessimism, and cynicism are rising within many workplaces. Employees at every level believe their work environment is unhealthy, but they don’t know what to do to make things better.

In this webcast, learn about three core areas that, together, make a workplace unhealthy. The presenter will share practical steps that you can take to help your workplace become a healthier environment. After the webcast, you’ll be able to:

  • Describe the characteristics of a “sick system,” the behavior patterns of toxic leaders, and dysfunctional individuals in the workplace.
  • Apply practical strategies to work relationships that, over time, can lead to a healthy, positive work environment.
