    Toxic people, like their chemical counterparts, harm everything they touch.  They take various shapes and forms in the workplace; they target direct reports, people in certain jobs or who specific responsibilities or even more frighteningly, target a specific gender, age or race.  How do you deal with damaging personalities, especially those who are adept at staying a hairs breadth away from a documentable performance problem?  Or more frequently, toxic staff who have friends in higher places who make sure that they are protected from termination.

    Come prepared to discuss the following:

    • What are the different types and nature of toxicity that you have witnessed?

    • What actions have you taken to successfully correct toxic behavior?

    • What have you tried that did not work?

    • Are their programs or processes HR professionals can put in place to limit the effects of toxic behavior?Or better yet, prevent it from starting in the first place?
