Has someone at work ever stabbed you in the back? Do you work with anyone that is envious of you and out to get you? Backstabbing behaviors and envy in the workplace can be toxic and create an environment where people do not want to be. When employees exhibit behaviors such as spreading rumors, telling lies, taking credit for someone else’s work or ideas, sabotaging coworkers or the company, withholding information, or telling you one thing to your face and then doing something else behind your back, it infects the team and typically impacts other departments as well. This presentation will show you how to put a stop to this before it tears teams apart and damages morale.
After participating in this teleseminar, you will know how to
- Determine what prompts employees to backstab
- How to utilize the unique communication skills to effectively confront and handle a backstabber
- Take steps to prevent further backstabbing incidents
