When I started my career, I had no idea what made an environment toxic. I often turned in on myself- Was it me? Was I not good enough in the role? We can learn and develop ourselves and yet still find situations stress-filled and toxic i.e. poisonous to us. I will share my experiences and insight into how to spot and avoid toxicity in a prospective employer, and how to survive and escape if this is your current reality. You will come away with one concrete action to help you take a step in a healthy direction for you.
Areas of focus:
a. What to look out for and key language giveaways in (job vacancy) advertising and recruitment selection processes
b. How to explore and uncover potentially toxic environments (when you may be set up to fail) when meeting potential new employers
c. Managing and protecting your well-being in toxic situations
d. How to exit gracefully, with relationships in tact and with a positive outlook for the next opportunity
