Imagine a work environment where you are literally in "eat or be killed" mode, and something as important as your paycheck is involved. This doesn't lend itself to a team spirit environment.
Today's guest, Kristin Sunanata Walker, CEO of Everything EHR says: "What I see in organizations where leadership has created a toxic work environment is the prevalence of health issues from mental decline, eating disorders, anxiety, PTSD, etc."
"Like the toxic village elder that wants no children to go to school lest they become smarter than he or she, narcissistic leaders keep their staff in an ever rotating position of ambiguity, gaslighting, love bombing, and paranoia. If anyone other than the leader shines too brightly this results in massive narcissistic injury. A beheading is commonplace and the longer the staff continue on in this environment the harder it will be for them to leave. They do take on the traits of their leader and live in a sheltered yet grandiose bubble of superiority on a ship of fools."
Today Kristin will discuss, among other things, what she refers to as the characters in the Narcissistic Leaders game: The cheerleader, the star, and the doldrums.
