People in your work life, working for someone else, or in your own business, can resort to verbal violence to try to capture control! Know how to speak up, set boundaries, and contribute to respectful conversations. Even, if you're the violator!
Verbal Violators in any work situation make working together next to impossible.
At a minimum, they make you cringe, avoid, and prefer to take sick days over going to work.
In my book, Wrestling Rhinos: Conquering Conflict in the Wilds of Work, I talk about folks who commit "malpractice of the mouth!" Those are verbal violators, verbal abusers. These folks have control issues that lead to anger issues that lead to rage and lack of reason. And, they think they're right.
You know that I talk about my term, Hijackals®. Those are the difficult, the relentlessly difficult people in life who just have to run everything, including their mouths! Well, you meet them at work, too.
In this episode, I'm giving you some thoughts on how to proceed when you're around folks whose "mouths enrage before their minds engage" as I say in Wrestling Rhinos.
