People tend to have a natural aversion to those who make it all about themselves. But wait, is that person you?

Inc. states: “Almost every workplace has at least one toxic employee. You know the type — always negative, tends to bully others, distracts much of the team … the “bad apple” that ruins the barrel. But what if someone were to tell you that you were that person?”

What are the signs that you are the “toxic person”? And what effects does that have on your workplace satisfaction? The relationships you have with your colleagues? With your customers and clients? Your prospects?

Try and look as objectively as possible. If you tick the boxes, it’s time to look at how you can change your behavior, as well as influence how people perceive you. And what lies underneath, on a subconscious level, that you behave like you do?

Do you:
– Make everything about you?
– Say and do passive-aggressive things?
– Feel and show jealousy of other’s successes?

You might be the toxic person in your environment. How does that affect your success? Lead yourself to a better place.
