  • How to identify the source of negative talk

    It may be you!

Words CAN damage team morale.

When toxic talk infects an entire department, managers may be tempted to throw up their hands and just give in. They often feel powerless to counteract the damage caused by disparaging comments and persistent negativity, believing that "you can't change human nature."

But tolerating these harmful behaviors is definitely NOT the best solution. And there is a way to get back control.

Join coaching professional Marie McIntyre on July 30th for Managing Toxic Talkers — a 90-minute online training that will help you successfully defuse the negative impact of gossip and workplace rumors.
