Working With You Is Killing Me

CRM Produced

Run time: 23 Minutes

From chronic complainers to idea-stealers, boundary pushers to just plain jerks, a toxic co-worker can ruin your day - and your life!

Everyone - including the lucky few who’ve never had to work with a difficult person - will benefit from this program. It brilliantly portrays how employees on any career path and at any level of an organization can be undone by a problem co-worker. The amount of time spent worrying, avoiding, raging and obsessing over toxic employees can affect performance on the job and peace at home.

With authors Katherine Crowley and Kathi Elster as hosts, this video program provides the antidote, showing exactly how to take responsibility for addressing the problem and put a stop to it all. It shows employees how to “unhook” from difficult situations in four simple ways: Physically, Mentally, Verbally and With a Business Tool (memo, email, log, etc.).

Participants will learn to:
  • examine how their own reactions can enable the situation.
  • internalize a series of proven responses to problem behavior.
  • reinforce the message if the problem behavior returns.

Join the Authors! Katherine Crowley and Kathi Elster invite CRM Learning customers to hear free podcasts based on all their books: Working with You Is Killing Me, Mean Girls at Work and Working for You Isn't Working for Me.
