Leading Effectively Begins with Mindfulness

Your second quarter is coming to an end and your sales team isn't closing the deals it's forecasted. As expenses outweigh the current cash flow, your CEO is forced to prune the organization and puts the pressure on you to perform.

The Tyranny of Toxic Managers: An Emotional Intelligence Approach to Dealing with Difficult Personalities

The Tyranny of Toxic Managers: An  Emotional Intelligence Approach to Dealing with Difficult Personalities | Employee Engagement | Scoop.it

Toxic managers are a fact of life. Some managers are toxic most of the time; most managers are toxic some of the time. Knowing how to deal with people who are rigid, aggressive, self-centered or exhibit other types of dysfunctional behaviour can improve your own health and that of others in the workplace. This author describes the mechanisms for coping.

 

Toxic managers dot the landscape in most organizations, making them seem, at times, like war zones. These managers can complicate your work, drain your energy, compromise your sanity, derail your projects and destroy your career. Your ability to deal with these corporate land mines will have a significant impact on your career. Those who are able to recognize toxic managers quickly and understand what makes them tick will be in the best position to protect themselves. Difficult managers are a fact of life and how they affect your life depends upon the skills you develop to deal with them.
