article description
Toxic Workplace! is the first book to tackle the underlying systems issues that enable a toxic person to create a path of destruction in an organization, pervading others' thoughts and energies, even undermining their very sense of well-being. Based on all-new research with over 400 leaders, many from the Fortune 500 list, this book illustrates how to manage existing toxic behaviors, create norms that prevent the growth or regrowth of toxic environments, and ultimately design organizational communities of respectful engagement. - from the inside flapDr. Mitchel Kusy and Dr. Elizabeth Holloway are professors in the PhD Program in Leadership & Change at Antioch University.This book is available in the AU Ebrary Ebook CollectioLink to Table of Contents
