Almost every office has at least one toxic co-worker: The Back Stabber. The Passive-Aggressive. The Brownnoser. The Gossip. The Flirt. As minor nuisances they can zap your energy and ruin your concentration, and, at the extreme, a malicious officemate can sabotage your work and damage your personal and professional reputation. In today’s volatile economy, trading a toxic workplace for a healthier office is not always an option, so employees must use effective communication techniques to turn poisonous environments into productive ones.
