🔥NEW In modern society and organizations, very negative, destructive, "toxic" team members may damage an entire organization or a team. Typical examples of toxic behaviors are:
  • Backstabbing, criticizing and blaming.
  • Gossiping and spreading rumors.
  • Agreeing in meetings, but not following through afterwards.
  • Hoarding information (keeping it to themselves).
  • Purposely undermining others (the leader).
  • Caring only about personal agendas.
Curnow-Chavez gives the following 4 recommendations when you're faced with a toxic employee:
  1. Have an honest conversation with the toxic person.
  2. Raise your own game and keep your ego in check. Be a role model and don't degrade yourself to the other person's level.
  3. Talk with your superior.
  4. Take care of yourself.
