10 ways to spot toxic employees:
Team members are afraid of toxic employees.
Ask a toxic person what they’re getting done and they’ll tell you what they plan to get done.
Conversations have winners and losers.
Listening is their tool to learn weaknesses, find fault, and gain advantage.
Toxic employees allow you to fail so they look good. As long as they look good, everything is fine. When failure comes knocking, they make excuses for themselves and blame others.
Toxic employees don’t:
Offer an apology.
Managers, leaders, and fellow employees are idiots. Toxic employees are always right. They carry the ‘burden’ of knowing what everyone else should do.
Toxic employees always have solutions/answers for everything and everyone but share it in a way to make them look good and you look stupid.
The only people who aren’t idiots are the people who:
Agree with them.
Acquiesce to their desires.
Advance their personal agenda.
Toxic employees throw you under the bus and make it look like they’re helping.
