Learn about the workshop
Dealing with A-Holes at Work Using Play Experience
We all have had that person at work that goes by the colorful euphemism that starts with the letter A. Why has that person’s behavior been tolerated in the office? How has this person affected staff morale and productivity? What is the dynamic fostered at your workplace to allow this type of behavior? What if you could address this problem in a fun, dynamic way? Through our play and values workshop, we provide techniques on how to deal with your own A-hole problem. Finally addressing the “A” issue may cause your company to thrive in ways you once thought impossible.
How Much Are A-Holes Costing You Each Year?
According to the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM), toxic workplace cultures have cost business approximately $223 Billion Dollars in the past 5 years due to turnover. If you could reduce the toxicity in your workplace, how much money would you save, how would morale change, and how much more productive would your staff be?
Designed tomaximize individual and team performance
Easy to use strategies can be applied immediately.
In this workshop, participants learn to:

The Learning Experience
Our workshop is structured in three sections, each designed to assist employees in improving confidence, communication, and collaboration skills.
Defining what makes an A-Hole
Participants will be invited to envision someone at work that is an A-hole. Also they will be exposed to the symptoms of people that suffer from A-Hole-Itis.
Experiencing The A-Hole
Participants will play experiential games designed to put them in real-world scenarios. This will allow them to understand how it feels to work in a toxic and non-toxic work environment in a low-stakes way.
Solutions for Dealing with A-Holes
In the final section, participants will learn proven solutions for dealing with A-Holes in their organization. They will get a chance to practice their tested solutions so they are well equipped when they go back to work.
