Anyone who's managed a company or a team long enough eventually has to deal with a toxic employee. Though they manifest themselves different ways, most are overly negative in their attitudes, have lousy work ethics, and consistently blame others for everything. Unlike a general disgruntled worker, what makes someone a toxic employee is their desire to spread their negative attitudes to others and infect the broader workplace. This class will address the issue of how to deal with toxic employees in your midst.
