Working With You Is Killing Me
Freeing Yourself from Emotional Traps at Work

We've all worked with someone who makes work impossible. But it doesn't have to be that way. This class, based on the national best-selling book, teaches employees and managers how to tame a toxic co-worker by setting boundaries. Everyone - including the lucky few who’ve never had to work with a difficult person - will benefit from this program. It brilliantly portrays how employees on any career path and at any level of an organization can be undone by a problem co-worker. The amount of time spent worrying, avoiding, raging and obsessing over toxic employees can affect performance on the job and peace at home.

This workshop also provides the antidote, showing exactly how to take responsibility for addressing the problem and put a stop to it all. It shows employees how to “unhook” from difficult situations in four simple ways: Physically, Mentally, Verbally and With a Business Tool (memo, email, log, etc.).
