Putting An Antidote on Toxic Behaviour


All managers who are involved in leading people.



You will learn that authentic leaders are self-aware and genuine. Authentic leaders are individuals who are aware of their strengths, their limitations, and their emotions. They also show their real selves to their team and recognise the antidotes of toxic behaviours, showing how to contain toxicity.
