There’s something going on in too many offices. (It may be right behind you.) The “something” is big and toxic. And it’s killing results and the satisfaction we get from our jobs.

There’s an elephant in your office. Do you have the skills to do something about it?


What is the elephant in the office? The destructive behaviors that no one does anything about. How much of your heart and soul does the elephant in your office devour when your alarm goes off and you dread the day ahead? When you realize that CYA is the real office priority? And your family gets your leftovers at the end of the day?



Those amongst us who are making a difference are in the elephant removal business. They’re using specific tools and strategies- the best of what our organization, Verus Global, Inc., offers-to put an end to the toxic workplace, get more done, and be excited about work again.

Over the years repeated requests have been made to have our leadership tools in print. It’s now here. Stomp the Elephant in the Office (Wister and Willows, 2008) reveals what leaders around the world are doing to create elephant-free workplaces. The same hard-hitting, quick-to-read, packed-with-value style you appreciate in this blog is the same you’ll find in Stomp the Elephant in the Office.

With accolades from Stephen R. Covey and others, we’re looking forward to hearing from you! What are your greatest elephant-busting stories? Also, if you’re tired of loved ones complaining about their job, get them a copy of the book as well. Let’s spread the news. The expanding world of “wellness leadership” welcomes all our contributions.

What is the difference between what “might be” and what “can be”?  You decide.
