Countless people often fantasize about leaving a bad job, and even more so, leaving their job with a behavioral display of “screw all of you!” Keep in mind that fantasies like this generally do not account for real-world consequences that follow inappropriate behavior. Leaving a toxic work environment with dignity and respect gives you the peace of mind that you are not burning bridges with others. We live in a very small world, so remember, your reputation has a tendency to precede you, even when you don’t think it will. It is crucial that you de-personalize your departure and view your leaving as something you are doing for yourself, rather than something that you are doing to someone else.
