There are a lot of toxic workplace signs, but the thing is, these toxic work behaviors exist everywhere at some level. It’s easy to tick them off the list, think you’re in a toxic workplace when in fact maybe it’s just a bad work environment or it’s just the typical office politics and coworker drama that exists everywhere. And while these things are good to know, and dive into, lately I’ve been seeing these thrown around and even misdiagnosed. This is important because how you deal with a toxic workplace and the aftermath of a toxic job is extremely different than those more typical experiences. So in this video, I’m breaking down the signs your job is toxic that should not be ignored. These are really the differentiators that can help you identify if you are in a toxic company or on a toxic team so you can take appropriate action.

If you are in or recently escaped a toxic work environment, I’m creating more resources at and would love for you to check it out!
