The Premise: Working with toxic individuals in unavoidable in IT.
In this roundtable, Tom Hollingsworth discusses whether it’s fundamentally unavoidable to work with toxic people in IT. First the panelists define what we mean by toxic in an IT context. Then they dig into why IT seems to have its fair share of people with toxic characteristics, and why the focus should be on the relationship between individuals, rather than singling out one party as being the problem. From there, they dig into how to work with such people, when too much is enough, and how to perhaps avoid falling into the trap of toxicity yourself.
