Toxic Managers: How to Deal with Horrible Bosses [Infographic]

We all dream of a pleasant, happy and productive work environment. Too often, though, toxic managers fail to connect with their team members. They damage team dynamics, productivity and morale. In many cases, they poison the very environment we all want in the workplace.

Have you ever dreaded going to work at a job you generally enjoy?  Have you ever felt that things just aren’t getting done? Have you ever had to wonder just what your boss expects of you?

If the answer to any of these questions is, yes, it may be the company culture. But it might be as simple as your boss’s management style. You can’t, however, confront them directly, because this often makes matters worse, further poisoning the office atmosphere… right?

Thanks to this infographic, you can learn to better recognize the eight most common types of toxic managers. Perhaps more important, you’ll learn what you can do to lessen their impact on your job experience, productivity, and general happiness.

After all, you may not be the poison in your toxic work environment… but you can be the antidote.
