Everyone can have a bad day or bad week, and we cannot blame managers that do what they are supposed to do, which, in part, includes enforcement of work rules and regulations to ensure compliance and quality control. If we are lucky enough to never endure a toxic environment, then you might not be able to recognize the symptoms, but not many people can claim this, irrelevant of their career state or seniority, and once you are faced with these behavior patterns, you will always learn to recognize them. If these individuals or groups are not promptly handled, they can have detrimental impact to the wider environment and company brand on the market. Toxic management style can be found in all company levels and sizes, and usually results in degradation of work quality, morale and stability of an organization, causing high employee turnover and low workplace morale due to the incremental breakdown of confidence and self-esteem of the individual. The lecture discusses common symptoms of this behavior, and how can we positions ourselves, teams we lead and companies to mitigate impacts of such occurrences and, hopefully, train managers to manage in better ways, or remove them from the environment in most efficient way.
