Some organizations are poisonous, and they can infect everyone who works there. But if you have been in a toxic workplace too long, you may have come to accept sick behavior as normal. And you may even start to think that there’s something wrong with you.
So here are some clues to watch for – and if you spot even one or two of these signs, you might want to start polishing up your resume and looking for a healthier place to work.
Toxic organizations are usually the product of toxic leadership. For better or worse, the values and beliefs of top executives determine the culture of their companies.
So if you find yourself in one of these unhealthy places, you have two choices: either take stress management classes and pray for a leadership change or get out! As soon as you leave, everything happening in that sick little world will become totally irrelevant to your life.
