Emotional vampires tend to drain the energy of everyone they encounter. These “vampires” tend to suck out your optimism, and enthusiasm rather than your blood. Their toxic behaviors can range from subtle comments, to full blown drama. These vampires, it can be one, or one hundred in an organization, affect workplace productivity and lowers morale. It is essential to stop having your energy drained from you. One way is to learn to identify the different types of behavior they possess.

It is also vital to learn how to keep their negativity from affecting how you work and feel about yourself. When working with Emotional Vampires, we need to remember that what they say or do is a reflection of them, not us.

Participants in this workshop will:

• Learn about the different types of behaviors of Emotional Vampires

• Gain a better understanding about how Emotional Vampires affect the workplace

• Develop strategies for dealing with Emotional Vampires.
