Is Your Workplace Toxic? National Researchers to Conduct Seminar on Making a Positive Work Environment

Posted on Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

Hartford, CT—Do you ever experience incivility in your workplace or community? Antioch University’s Center for Leading Change will present a one-day seminar in Hartford on Monday, October 7, titled Toxic Behaviors and Everyday Civility©: What You Can Do to Improve Performance and Create More Positive Work Environments. Featuring experts in this field that have led seminars across North America, the event is open to all professionals to help them better understand incivility and toxic behaviors in the workplace. It will be held at the Marriott Hartford Downtown on Columbus Blvd.

One of the seminar faculty is a returning New Britain native, Dr. Mitchell Kusy; the other seminar faculty is Dr. Elizabeth Holloway, both professors in the Antioch University PhD in Leadership and Change program. Together they have conducted a national research study with over 400 leaders resulting in their latest book, Toxic Workplace! Managing Toxic Personalities and Their Systems of Power.

At this seminar, Drs. Kusy and Holloway present not only the hard data of the cost this represents to organizations, teams and individuals, but also what to do about it both proactively (to recognize these individuals through the hiring process) and reactively (once they are in your organization). As international consultants, they have helped hundreds of organizations deal with the damage caused by toxic behaviors in the workplace.

The Center for Leading Change is the non-degree arm of Antioch University’s highly recognized and distinctive PhD in Leadership and Change program. Costs to attend the seminar are $295 for the morning session or $495 for the morning session and the afternoon lab. Discounts are available.
