"Leaders especially must be SELF AWARE enough to know if they have slipped into these 3 TOXIC habits and correct them immediately." J Loren Norris
WHAT IF THE TOXIC PERSON IN YOUR WORKPLACE WAS YOU?
WOULD YOU KNOW IT?
WOULD YOU OWN IT?
I want to describe three basic toxic people which can be found in many if not most work environments. You decide if any of these describe you and whether or not you are willing to change.
1. GARBAGE TRUCKS
I get this one from Dr John C Maxwell. These are the people who show up in your work space and dump all their problems, challenges and issues on your desk. Often they are not expecting you to solve them or even offer ideas or solutions to cope. They are just misery in need of company.
2. NEGATIVE NELLIES
No matter what happens they have a negative, pessimistic world view and a loud vocal opinion to accompany it. They feel bad about even the most hopeful of circumstances and are not content until they convince other to feel poorly as well.
3. PICKED ON PEOPLE
Nothing which goes wrong in their life is their fault. Everything was caused by someone else. Likely because they “hate me” or “they are jealous of me”. This particular kind of toxicity is less obvious because it is camouflaged behind a false sense of pride and confidence. However, when a “big win” is expected by this person and it doesn’t happen, they blame everyone but themselves for the failure or missed opportunity.
If you find any of these tendencies in yourself you need to address them immediately. They will have a direct impact on your ability to get along well with others and eventually a direct impact on your promotability and hire ability.
Leaders especially must be SELF AWARE enough to know if they have slipped into these 3 TOXIC habits and correct them immediately.

Day after day I meet people who are struggling just to make ends meet. They are adrift in this vast sea of humanity holding on to their job, their family, their home, and their car with all they've got. They see their life experiences and education as the last hope to find their purpose and identity. They gather, fill and stuff all the money they can into every opportune investment. Yet they are empty, frustrated, angry and just plain fed up.
We have all experienced that moment; when we find yourself stuck in traffic, yelling at random strangers to do what they wish they could... but can't... GO!
The idea that life can be better than it is today is like the flame of a candle fighting for all its worth to stand against the tempest.
We all want a better life.
Even when life is good, we want more.
That idea, that flame, is the hope that lives in the hearts and minds of all of us. Should that flame be extinguished, hope itself may well go with it. It is the rut of hopelessness that traps many would be shining stars and buries that glow from the sight of the world. It is the rut of hopelessness that extinguishes that flame.
Lives that would have been a beacon to the wandering are lost at sea themselves. Inspirations of success that would have been the voices crying out to all who suffer are hidden away in their own stale lives, they cannot share who they are or what the world needs from them.
It is my passion to help you find your purpose. I want to see you become successful, but more than that to be free!
Without vision people perish.
Without vision, we seem to be lost, mind numb robots following the herd into the abyss that is everyday life. We do not live intentionally without a vision for our future. We do not live passionately without a vision for our future. We do not live productively without a vision for our future. We certainly cannot lead without a vision for our future and a vision for the future of those we lead.
This audio course will inspire and instruct you to create a vision which will become a significant driving force in your life.
