Program Description

Are you trying to decide if the situation at work is serious enough to start your job-hunt, or are you a member of a department with questions about a co-worker’s chronic negative behaviors? The stereotypical “dysfunctional workplace” is about what people say and do every day, and how words and behaviors impact others. From chronic headaches to feelings of benign contempt towards the people in charge, learn the flags that might indicate change is warranted.
