This is one of those conversations that’s going to be applicable to 99.9% of you, because who hasn’t experienced a toxic workplace at some point in their life??
Whether you’re a college student folding clothes at the mall or a Senior VP at a large firm, toxicity ABOUNDS—In the form of cattiness, disengagement, resentment, and groupthink, to name a few culprits.
In this month’s Magic 8-Ball episode we brought back this classic from two years ago, because if anything, the pandemic has made wading through the mire of a toxic workplace even more stressful and complicated than ever.
Listen in as Stacy Campesi, one of our very best friends, shares her well-earned wisdom about how to navigate a toxic work environment. We talked about:
- The relationship between toxic workplaces and “good girl syndrome”
- Why “toxic” is a misused word, and why using it makes the problem worse
- How we can identify an unhealthy environment ahead of time, before we ever make a commitment
- When to stick it out, and when it’s OK to bail
- What steps YOU can take to improve your environment, based on what Stacy has seen work for herself and her clients
After you’ve listened, leave a comment below to let us know how Stacy’s advice resonated with you!

About toxic workplaces, it took me until middle age to realize that no job or dollar amount is worth destroying your emotional/physical health. Cheers to you all for enlightening the younger generations!
