Everything in life rises and falls on leadership.
There’s a saying that goes “The problem with people, is the people themseleves”
As long as people are in a project, there will be problems.
Toxic people is a wide general term. For me to illustrate my point better, let me explain 3 types of people you get in your work place:
1.) Dumb people who knows they are dumb.
2) Dumb people who don’t know they are dumb.
3) Dumb people who think they are smart.
The most difficult people to work with which I call toxic falls into category 3.
You cannot fill a cup that is already full.
3 ways to deal with these toxic people are the following:
1.) UNDERSTAND THAT SOME PEOPLE WILL NEVER CHANGE.
The saying goes “A Leopard never changes his spots”
In the beginning of my organization I refused to believe the above statement, but I paid that ignorance dearly.
If I can tell young entrepreneurs, ministers, CEO’s, to take this statement seriously, it would save them many sleepless nights.
There are some people that just don’t change.
2.) LIMIT YOUR COMMUNICATION WITH THEM
An article was printed in the newspaper titled “Idiots in the workplace will kill you”.
This was such an interesting article and headline that I couldn’t stop myself from reading it, in disbelief.
As I read through this article, the truth pained me. The whole point of the article was that employees that don’t do their job or make silly mistakes, can cause employed to have high blood pressure, a short life or heart attack.
Meaning – Idiots in the workplace can literally kill you!
3.) ELIMINATE THEM BEFORE THEY ELIMINATE YOU
The truth is that toxic people will remove you if you don’t remove them.
People makes your organization stand or fall. People makes the operations move forward.
The greatest secret to business and being entrepreneur I revived was to have wise, high-capacity people in your top-line!
Make the decision today and you will see your business and ministry excel!
