Toxic takeover: how not to fail as a boss
By: Rob Salome | Posted on January 31, 2019
A friend of mine recently had a new boss take over his company.
When I say take over, I mean “take over.”
They came in on a rampage; cancelling major projects, berating employees, subverting leaders, criticizing employees behind their backs, etc. It was toxic and spread throughout the organization like wildfire.
Little does this boss know, soon he will be standing alone wondering how he is going to get everything done while simultaneously tap dancing in front of his own boss.
Toxic behavior can take a lot of forms.
