Working With Aggressive Personalities


Understand the most common and predictable aggressive behaviors and how to proactively intervene to lower the toxicity.

Aggressive personalities create a double bind for most companies. Their behavior creates a toxic and unsafe work culture with compromised productivity, engagement, and wellbeing. Often, these same personalities are highly driven, passionate, and productive as well. We can't live with them, and we can't live without them. Ultimately, your culture is only as good as the worst behaviors it allows. The solution lies in understanding the relationship between positive motivation and negative attention. Most aggressive behavior is a negative attempt to meet personality-specific psychological needs or a reaction to an emotional trigger. Learn about the most common and predictable aggressive behaviors, what's behind them, and how to proactively intervene to lower the toxicity. Everyone, including leaders, have a role to play in keeping themselves out of distress and helping others do the same.
