    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.

    Dorothy says: "Targeted at those that can make changes"
    "Toxic bosses leave a wake of negative effects."

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book clearly illuminates how toxic people (especially people in authority) in the workplace can create entrenched systems and beliefs that may last for years, even after the toxic employee's removal. Such results include stifled creativity, afraid of voicing true opinions in the company's best interest, mistrust of co-workers, social/emotional scars for co-workers and their families, costs of lost productivity due to co-worker's focus on protection and damage control, cost of re-training workers who finally leave, and lack of growth in the company.


    What other book might you compare Toxic Workplace! to and why?

    The No-Asshole Rule. Explains why top companies like Intel get of rid of individual high performers who can't work collaboratively making the company less competitive and financially successful in the long run.


    What about Vanessa Hart’s performance did you like?

    I enjoyed her narration; friendly, interesting, and informative.;


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    How a toxic administrator can leave long-reaching damage that may take years to reverse.


    Any additional comments?

    A great book which made me aware of the sharks among us in the workplace who need to be weeded out in order for companies to stay innovative, productive, and competitive.
