Part of a leader's responsibility is to maintain favorable work conditions. Unfortunately, there are people who make this difficult to accomplish. While they may be small in numbers at times, they seem to create the largest amount of stress. Line and staff officers are often referred to as toxic employees. Their counterproductive attitudes can negatively impact the workplace. Toxic employees are people who are disappointed with his or her job, and want to tell everyone of their experience. Their unhappiness can stem from a variety of sources. The toxic person likes to hold the workplace hostage from threatening supervisors with lawsuits, to filing baseless grievances. If the work force feels the toxic person is not being held accountable, morale suffers.
This 2.5-day course is organized to help police leaders develop strategic view of dealing with toxic employees while managing your liability risk. This program is user friendly complete with different options of defensible techniques to help administrators and supervisors establish a plan to manage the toxic employ and avoid long and costly lawsuits.
