Ep #108: How to Escape a Toxic Workplace By Focusing on Yourself
Do you work in a toxic environment? ☣️
Chances are if you work with other people, you are going to experience some form of toxicity.
That’s because all human beings have some form of unconscious bias.
Now this is not meant to in any way excuse blatant toxic behavior like racism, sexism, ageism, etc. I am simply pointing out that bias, conscious or unconscious, exists and this leads to toxic work environments, pretty much everywhere we look.
And once you understand that toxic environments happen at work – that it’s the nature of us as inherently flawed human beings to bring our personal biases to the table – then you can transform your experience to create the change you want to see at your organization.
In this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer, I will show you how to begin dealing with toxic work environments in a way that serves YOU as the leader you want to become and allows you to step into your power instead of continuing to bring. you. down.
If you want to receive the recognition you deserve, step into a higher leadership position, get paid for your ideas instead of the hours you put in at work, and enjoy more time, freedom, energy, and joy, then you need to get your hands on a copy of Promotions Made Easy. Get your copy here.
