Do your managers know what to look for when screening for toxic employees?  Do they know how to manage difficult people? Do they understand what it takes to maintain and protect an organization’s culture?  Do they fully understand the ramifications of what happens when the arsonist—the prototypical rogue employee—strikes and what they can do to a company’s finances, legal liability, ability to attract and retain good employees, reputational risks and the physical and psychological well-being of management and rank and file employees?  We can help!


Are you worried about your company’s current culture?  Are you starting from scratch? Do you need a refresher course or a renewed focus on what’s important within your company’s culture?  Do you need to clean up some troubling issues that are weighing your organization and your employees down and need direction?  We can help.
