We all have experienced toxic bosses in the workplace. A funny thing is the thought that toxic bosses breed other toxic leaders and before you know it a hostile work environment has evolved.

Leaders don't start out to be abrasive but somehow they get there for a variety of reasons. Laura will share her survey to help you assess yourself or your situation and offer practical tips and tools to avoid the pitfalls of toxic leadership.
