It is increasingly common to find the word toxic particularl nouns like: companies, organizations, chiefs or people, and not just because there are toxic fumes in the place, or need for a brigade of special risks to work there. If we refer to a toxic company, we will be referring to an organization whose results are unsatisfactory, and its members are working in a situation of stress and tension so great, that the workplace becomes a field of battle and destruction for the person. Peter J. Frost, Professor of organizational behavior at British Columbia University, describes a toxic work environment in the following way: is the result both of the practices of a company and attitudes and emotionally insensitive actions of its managers. A situation remaining vitality to the workers and the Organization and contributes to a reduction of individual productivity (toxic emotions at work. Ed.: Deusto). The aggressiveness, the envy, the incompetence of managers and a hostile environment, will progressively undermine the emotional competence of workers, making him little by little in a person frightened, intimidated and with a strong sense of guilt.

At the head of a toxic organization, it can or is usually a Manager or a toxic leader, whose needs and personal interests do not often coincide with the Organization, little or nothing facilitator of an emotional and effective communication and a source of real or imagined pressures. Toxic leader tends to be contradictory, distant, capricious and inconsistent, so his subordinates, never know what to follow, or that holds them for the next minute. In his book Nursing Management, Fitzpatrick, describes him as very distrustful, cares for his personal aggrandizement and fight for the triumph, the power and the glory. It is very aggressive with employees who have doubts about him and makes enemies where there are no. If there are toxic bosses it is because companies tolerate them, and if they tolerate them is because they believe that they are useful to their objectives.
