This presentation will describe how defensive routines begin and live within organizations, making trust, true teamwork, and honesty difficult. The presenter will describe tested theories and concepts that explain how defensiveness creates threatening and uncomfortable work environments. These theories will relate to how toxic environments feel to the members of the organization and what can be done to create workplaces in which we want to work. The speaker will provide insights into how all staff can play critical roles in creating a healthy workplace. After this presentation, attendees will understand organizational climate and culture more deeply and will see the connection between individual behaviors and their effect on the organization.
