Use Your Words: Surviving a Toxic Workplace
cores of business writers and social scientists have documented the prevalence in America of highly stressful, negative workplaces. Studies investigate the serious impact of toxic work environments on organizational performance, individual productivity and employee wellbeing. Professor Rick Schell will provide a quick overview of approaches to dealing with these work environments and propose a framework for using language to engage constructively and counter their worst effects. Attendees will have an opportunity to test the framework in an interactive session.
