SCORE: 1-9

In This Situation, You Showed Mildly Toxic Behavior.

However, this doesn’t mean you are a toxic person.  

The fact you’ve taken this quiz is proof that you want to improve your leadership skills, behave in healthier ways, and be accountable to yourself and others.

One–or more–of these statements probably applies to you:

You grew up in a household where unhealthy behavior (including, but not limited to narcissism, violence, abuse and/or addiction) was normal and/or rewarded. 
You’re in an unhealthy or abusive work or personal situation. You don’t know whether you should leave or set boundaries.
National Domestic Violence Hotline 
You don’t know how to cope because you’re so overwhelmed with just getting by. 
National Suicide Prevention Lifeline

If You’re in Therapy:

Awesome! Keep going; the process will make you a better leader. Frankly, it’ll make you more effective and confident in all your roles.
When therapy gets hard, remember your original goals and intentions for starting. Write these down in a safe place where you can see them every day.  
After you’re finished with therapy, join my group coaching program if you would like to maintain the skills you learned in a supportive, safe context

If You’re Not in Therapy:

I recommend that you enter psychotherapy with someone who understands interpersonal trauma before you become one of my coaching clients. I require that all my coaching clients have established self-care skills for at least 3 months before they work with me.

How to Find a Therapist:

If you are insured, call your insurance for a list of therapy providers in your area.
If you are uninsured, search for local graduate schools that train therapists and/or social workers. Many of these schools offer low-cost therapy as part of their training programs. 
Be aware that it can take time to find the right match. Finding a therapist is kind of like dating; this person needs to be the right fit for your personality and needs.
