To facilitate this style of leadership development we use action learning, feedback and executive leadership coaching to raise awareness about the characteristics of effective and ineffective leadership styles and to identify and re-focus sabotaging behaviours. QL has worked with diverse industry sectors ranging from engineering, construction, IT, project management, oil and gas, mining, legal and public administration. Defining the various parts of a leader's role can be difficult, especially because much of the training given often focuses on the management part of the role.
Most of us can recall working with someone that had such a strong, negative impact on the work environment that you could t literally feel the emotional mood swing when this person walked into a meeting. While it is easy to intuit that toxic employees are value destroyers, we’ve been short on hard data about the true impact that these individuals have on the work environment.  Until now. The best advice that I ever learned the hard way took was “fire the politicians.”  In one case earlier in my career, I was the enabler for this toxic individual, preferring to see only his strengths and talents and ignoring the havoc he created in the working environment.
If you’re on the edge about who should go, you will be well served to get the toxicity out.
In spite of my eternal optimism, I have no qualms about firing fast when it comes to toxic employees. Strategic Development™ integrates awareness and analysis with strategic planning, leadership development, employee development, and results management systems. While many firms concentrate on only one of these practices, we've learned to integrate them in a way that creates a multiplier effect. Planning without some form of communication and implementation process results in a plan that is not fully executed and lacks commitment from those who will be responsible for its implementation. One thing we have learned over the years is that for results to be enhanced, behaviors must change. We guarantee you will have the critical information required to develop a successful growth strategy or exit strategy and you can take one or more immediate actions to increase profit. We guarantee you will have an executable growth or exit strategy that creates business wealth and owner equity.

Organizes project and performance data into an efficient “goal, action plan and results” daily work process. The entire team is equipped to align project and performance management with strategic objectives and move beyond managing based upon spreadsheets, e-mail and to-do lists.
Leadership is a process by which a person influences others to accomplish an objective and directs the organization in a way that makes it more cohesive and coherent.
This is incredibly important in today’s world where every organization requires the best of its employees to succeed. Many managers fail to act out of some irrational fear or in the naive hope that they can help the person change.
I was curious to see what you thought about trying to correct behavior before firing this personality type… is this possible?
While it pains me to sound a bit cynical, my biggest career mistakes have actually been trying too hard and for too long to coach toxic characters on improving.
There are also underperformers, who take a halfway approach to practically everything and refuse to pull their own weight.
The idea of assessment and development seems to be popular lately, so we went with that theme and felt your post was certainly relevant.

This definition is similar to Northouse's (2007, p3) definition - Leadership is a process whereby an individual influences a group of individuals to achieve a common goal. While I am tremendously optimistic, I’ve not yet seen a toxic employee change for the better. In every case, I spent too much time with them and didn’t appreciate how adverse their presence and behaviors were to the rest of the team. Sometimes these individuals are also the office bullies, but sometimes they are very passive (perhaps passive aggressive in a sense?). To inspire your workers into higher levels of teamwork, there are certain things you must be, know, and, do. This is called Trait Leadership (Jago, 1982), in that it was once common to believe that leaders were born rather than made.
Either way, without raising their voice or uttering one single cutting remark, these underperformers are still toxic and sure to breed hostility in the workplace. Good leaders are continually working and studying to improve their leadership skills; they are NOT resting on their laurels.
