Resilience in the Face of Toxic Leadership -- Taking Care of Your People and Yourself
Evidence shows that toxic leadership has significant negative impact on organizations, but did you know that it has an even more sinister impact on individuals who are exposed to toxic leadership? It can change their behaviors on the job and in their personal lives. But what can we do about it when we find ourselves in a toxic leadership position? By exploring the characteristics of those who are most resilient in the face of toxic leadership we can find ways to protect ourselves, and more importantly, to take care of the people who trust in our leadership. Join Dr. Jan Hamby, Rear Admiral (Ret), USN, in a discussion about what you can do to be resilient in the face of toxic leadership.
