More Toxic People?

Meet the Sabotager. 

Previously, we talked about the Manipulator,  but there are other types of people who are also toxic at work.  One of those people is the Sabotager.  What can make these toxic people even worse is if they have power or clout in the organization.  


You may worry about distancing yourself from someone who’s both toxic and powerful for fear that they may sabotage your work and your reputation.  Those are legitimate fears.  These people are dangerous to have in the office.  

Confidence Tip: 

 When faced with toxic bullies,
be direct, stand up for yourself and build allies.

What can you do?  


If you can, limit your engagement with that person.  If you can’t, then send verbal cues when speaking to them by re-framing or being direct.  Don’t fly off the handle and respond to their triggers.  If you are to, ignore their actions.  If you can’t ignore them and the situation becomes out of your control you may have to bring in others to help (such as HR). 


One proactive step you can take is to build strong and positive relationships within your organization.  By creating allies you won’t be alone in dealing with the toxic saboteurs.  This will reinforce your belief in yourself and help build your confidence in yourself and your work.
