Product Description

Many employees experience the reality of bulling bosses, poisonous people, and soul-crushing cultures on a daily basis. Rising Above a Toxic Workplace tells authentic stories from today's workers who share how they cope, change-or quit. Candidly they open up about what they learned, what they wish they had done, and how to gain resilience. Insightfully illustrating from these accounts, authors Gary Chapman, Paul White, and Harold Myra blend their combined experiences in ministry and business to deliver hope and practical guidance to those who find themselves in an unhealthy work environment. Includes a Survival Guide and Toolkit full of strategies and realistic insights.

Endorsements

"Toxic organizations are rife with conflict, fear and anger. The environment causes people to have physiological responses as if they're in a fight-or-flight situation. Healthy people become ill. Colds, flu and stress-related illnesses such as heart attacks are more common. By contrast, in resonant organizations, people take fewer sick days and turnover is low. People smile, make jokes, talk openly and help one another." - Annie McKee (author, consultant)

    Book Review: Rising Above a Toxic Workplace

    I chose to read Rising Above a Toxic Workplace by Gary Chapman, Paul White, and Harold Myra because I have worked in a variety of positive and negative environments. The title grabbed my attention and increased my interest in learning ways to work effectively in a negative environment.

    Rising Above a Toxic Workplace is written in an easily-read, story-telling form. By compiling information from many interviews and including specific stories, Chapman, White, and Myra provide their readers with examples of how to move beyond simply going through the motions of workday after workday. They use varying stories of successful and unsuccessful choices to encourage their readers to make purposeful decisions instead of wallowing in self-pity.

    Each chapter in Rising Above a Toxic Workplace includes suggestions of other books to read, encouraging and challenging quotes, and several questions for self-reflection or group discussion. The end of the book also includes a Survival Guide and Toolkit which further delineates how to recognize and deal with a toxic environment, including when to leave the environment. Throughout the book, Chapman, White and Myra offer realistic suggestions that readers can relate to and understand. I believe Rising Above a Toxic Workplace would be an excellent read for all workers, including leaders, managers, and staff, because Chapman, White, and Myra emphasize how each persons actions can influence an environment for the better or for the worse.
