Working in toxic workplace environment can be challenging. First thing to understand is that toxic behaviour, whether it’s inappropriate jokes, bullying or even harassment, is often the effect of overconfidence.

UNDERMINED AT WORK BY BOSS (GAME-CHANGING TACTICS)
Do you know how to spot a toxic boss? Or how to deal with difficult managers? There are many signs of a bad boss/ toxic boss - one of them being undermining behaviour.
The first thing to recognise about an undermining boss is that sometimes, they don’t realise they are doing it. They’re used to being in charge, time is short and they often want to get to a quick result.
So before we get to the tactics, ask yourself if they mean to undermine you- or are they just what I like to scientifically call, ‘an insensitive knucklehead’.
Or are they actually intentionally a devious devil?
Either way, you'll want to know what these tactics are - they'll help you deal with both knuckleheads and devils.
