7 Smart Ways to Deal with Toxic People

7 Smart Ways to Deal with Toxic People | Best Companies | Scoop.it

Surviving the ups, downs, and lightning storms of other people’s moodiness can be quite a challenge.  It’s important, though, to remember that some moody, negative people may be going through a difficult stage in their lives.  They may be ill, chronically worried, or lacking what they need in terms of love and emotional support.  Such people need to be listened to, supported, and cared for (although whatever the cause of their moodiness and negativity, you may still need to protect yourself from their behavior at times).

I guess this is really interesting. We all come across "Toxic People" and learning to go around them or humoring them is very important if we want to make life more smooth! This is true at our place of work, and perhaps in our inner circle of friends and family too!

John Michel's curator insight, November 26, 2013 3:48 AM

We learned early on that our growth and success depended on our employees: how hard they worked, the ideas they had, how committed they were when times got tough, the types of relationships they formed with customers, and so much more. Keeping our employees inspired and happy, and honestly acknowledging how much we appreciated their loyalty and efforts, were some of our top priorities as business owners.

There's nothing new or revolutionary here but it's a great reminder of the basic blocking and tackling of managing change that is a continued struggle for many. We like the razzle dazzle and trick plays but sustainable change requires simplicity, consistency, and persistence.

With changing times, it is important to adapt new technologies that aligned towards employee engagement. Having an employee portal is one of them.

I like the simplicity of the model suggested - prompts thought - but on reflection it is to simplistic. People are differently motivated within each of the four headings. I tend to use Archetypes or NLP frames of reference when working with a group on motivation/

Bryce Wettstein's curator insight, September 9, 2013 12:08 AM

"Management is the opportunity to help people become better people. Practiced that way, it's a magnificent profession." - Professor Clay Christensen

 

I think this quote is an excellent supplement to the article. The article talks about four different emotional drivers that motivate employees, and how their morale affects their overall performance. If a manager is able to satisfy these emotional drivers, it develops positive employee engagement in the workplace.

 

This is a great example of the behavioral approach to management, which stresses group dynamic and leadership, social needs as primary motivating factors, and focuses more on the human side of an organization.

Terence R. Egan's curator insight, July 5, 2014 9:32 PM


Now, how can the principles of Behavioral Economics be employed in the workplace in order to optimize the attainment of the four emotional drivers?

 

For example, studies have shown that sharing unique, or even risky activities can considerably enhance bonding and teamwork. This has been shown to be true whether between lovers (or prospective lovers), colleagues, or both (although that last one is purely my own speculation!).

 

How can Behavioral Economics inform us on the attainment of the other three emotional drivers?
