Three Signs Your Manager Demonstrates Toxic Behavior

When you first leave the professional world, you may want to become a good employee and do everything your boss tells you. But how do you know that your workplace and employer are toxic?

Here are three ways you can say whether your boss is poisonous, or not:

1. Nonprofit Behavior: Nonprofit behavior at work can include gossip, trying to be "good", lacking interest, and not setting a good example for their subordinates. 
If a manager has no instructions and decorum to show self-control and treat people honestly and with respect, they can become a toxic manager.

While interviewing for a job, you can judge in advance. View this as a warning sign of immorality in casual conversations.

2. Unsupportive: Being unsupportive can include a lack of growth and progress, there is no guarantee, no credit to their employees, they will not take responsibility for any shortcomings, etc. If a leader is not motivated to lead, then positive attitudes are not expected of those who listen. The toxic employer jumps into work, pulls in all day, and gives the impression that life is a top priority. A toxic official does not promote a culture of sharing ideas, and that is a regime that does not want to work for a lifetime. They are very bad leaders and do not focus on the growth of the employees or the organization.

3. Micro-managing: Micro-managing can include a tendency to distrust employees, work hard, take everything personally, and always try to tell employees, without giving them too little freedom. The employer who always stands at your shoulder or insists on fixing the minute details in your work is a micro-manager and can be very toxic. But Micro-managing sinks the imagination and creates a dense atmosphere. You may feel that your supervisor is not sure that you will complete the tasks or that you will not be able to do anything that comes to the standard. This may lead to chronic depression, workplace dissatisfaction, and may promote a very bad work environment.

Micromanaging can be disruptive, it promotes distrust and undermines esteem. It is considered as a bad form of leadership. When your employer comes from earlier than you and lasts longer than you, it can create a toxic atmosphere for everyone. Although these executives do not believe their subordinates are amazing or the work actually has to be done this way, it can have serious consequences.


An incompetent leader should not be dangerous. Some people simply lack basic leadership skills, such as network communication.

But toxic leaders do harm to others. To maintain self-control, they use fear and intimidation. They discourage staff and intimidate people as a means of achieving consensus.

Unfortunately, several organizations, focusing on short-term results, are showing leadership effectiveness. However, toxic managers can also make short term shifts look better.

Threats and intimidation can lead workers to work longer and more active hours - at first. But as employers' toxic habits continue, workers lose their productivity and productivity.
