Ep #206: 4 Steps to Freeing Yourself from Toxic Relationships at Work

I love helping corporate badasses create beautiful, inspiring, and positive visions for the things they are going to accomplish and receive over the course of their careers.

And because I have a glass-half-full approach to executive coaching, I usually avoid getting in the weeds about all the gross, negative, and frankly sh*tty things that can happen in the corporate world.

But here’s the truth:

Many women are dealing with a lot of toxic relationships at work.

90% of my coaching conversations with my clients include a difficult boss or an asshole coworker or just a negative situation that’s gotten totally out of control.

And while I love empowering my clients with tools and strategies that allow them to release themselves from the negativity so they can focus on creating careers they really love…

…I know that’s easier said than done, especially if you’re not receiving coaching from me already.

So on this episode of Women Changing Leadership, I’m going to show you four ways to deal with toxic relationships at work so you can ditch the BS and get back to advancing yourself to your next level of leadership.

Let’s dive in.

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.
