"Working With You is Killing Me"

This workshop is designed for all employees who have worked with someone who makes work impossible. But it doesn't have to be that way. From chronic complainers to idea-stealers to boundary pushers, a toxic co-worker can ruin your day! The amount of time spent worrying, avoiding, raging and obsessing over toxic employees can affect performance on the job and peace at home. In this session participants will learn to recognize the symptoms of a negative workplace relationship and the role each plays in these situations; set boundaries and control reactions to coworkers who cross those boundaries; and “unhook” from difficult interpersonal situations at work.
