STRATEGIES FOR LEADERSHIP AND WORKPLACE TOXICITY
Employee health and productivity may suffer as a result of workplace toxicity. When talking about low-toxicity work environments, there are no best practices for effective leadership techniques. This qualitative narrative case study's goal was to gain a better understanding of how managers chose and used particular leadership techniques in nontoxic work settings. Using a purposive sample method and semi-structured interviews based on Alvarado's triangular model of workplace toxicity, data were gathered from 10 participants in New Hampshire. This study's design took a narrative approach to examine how effective leaders reduced workplace toxicity in real-world settings. Experience with toxic leadership and leadership approaches to toxicity were two of the three main themes that emerged from the research. This study's findings may aid business leaders in preventing lawsuits, low productivity, and high staff turnover caused by toxic workplace factors that are neglected or improperly managed. By developing realistic examples and recommendations for fostering a less toxic workplace, the study may help bring about good social change. Healthier and happier employees contribute to greater public wellbeing and business success.
