Date: Continued application | Time: 09:00-11:00 | Place: Online Learning | Membership fees: 80 EUR + VAT

Intended for:

For business leaders, middle managers, HR managers, and anyone who wants to know what the signs of a toxic work environment are and what to do to heal the work environment.



A healthy work environment creates satisfaction, well-being and good relations among colleagues. We like to work in organizations where we can realize ourselves professionally, where the manager and colleagues encourage and support our efforts to achieve more. Working with colleagues gives us satisfaction and support, which gives us confidence that everything is possible.

However, in reality, we often receive reprimands for mistakes, our professionalism is sometimes publicly belittled, colleagues do not share information necessary for work. Meetings are monologues by one person. Sometimes we feel miserable and our professional self-confidence falls. And yet we must be aware - everything that happens to us, we have either earned or allowed!

How to identify a toxic work environment? What are the effects of a toxic environment? How to find solutions to improve the environment? Who is to blame? What is my role in improving the environment?
