Energy vampiring (people who suck all the energy out of other people) and toxicity typically start out very subtle and nuanced. When left unchecked, the behaviors will metabolize into all aspects of interactions, eventually impacting everyone even close to the situation. Once a pattern has been established dealing with the discord can seem intractable.
There is hope – the key to protecting yourself and the organizational, team, or group culture, is to recognize early on before the pattern becomes established and take specific and intentional countermeasures.
“When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time” – Maya Angelou
Toxicity in the workplace acts like an infectious disease – it spreads and infiltrates teams and relationships, Without the understanding, skills and tools applied intentionally, toxicity will continue to spread eventually impairing the organization and burning out the leaders and staff.
In some organizations, toxicity has a seemingly intractable hold on the culture – it’s rampant. In other organizations, it is more covert but no less debilitating to the organization and the people.

Having to deal with toxic people and energy vampires is overwhelming and frustrating.
