We all have bad days, but if the following bells ring…your workplace may be toxic.

  1. A lack of trust between owners and the team.
    Is there a sense of ‘us’ and ‘them’? Everyone should feel part of the team.
  2. No Core Values.
    Or, worse still, Core Values which aren’t being lived into.
  3. After meeting meetings.
    Those chats after a meeting where team members go on to discuss the meeting or criticise decisions made.
  4. Highly stressful interactions.
    Disagreements will happen from time to time, but these should be the exception, not the norm.
  5. Team members and owners mistreating each other.
    They may be working in self-serving ways rather than benefiting the team and business.
  6. No team buy-in to the core purpose or the business’s goals.
    Or, an absence of purpose or goals completely.

A toxic culture will inhibit the success of your business. Take an honest look at your culture and make changes to help build a strong workplace culture.
