Without the understanding, skills and tools applied intentionally, toxicity will continue to spread eventually impairing the organization and burning out the leaders and staff. In some organizations, toxicity has a seemingly intractable hold on the culture - its rampant. In other organizations it is more covert, but no less debilitating to the organization and the people. People who would not normally exhibit toxic behavior begin reacting to the toxicity of others in ways that are negative and harmful to productivity and relationships. This is the beginning of a downward spiral. Toxicity feeding off toxicity. Good people will leave the team and organization. Toxicity and energy vampires at work won't go away if they are ignored. They will fester. Specific and intentional action is the only way to counter toxicity. There are skills and tactics that will work once the underlying behaviors are identified and understood. Only by learning how to identify toxic behavior in the workplace, how to get rid of energy vampires and developing a specific plan to confront and incapacitate them, will the workplace become safe and harmonious.
