Report: Legacy Toxicity in Formal Leader Low-Morale Experiences – Part 1 (February 2023)

For the past few years I’ve been considering something I call Legacy Toxicity:

the dysfunctional environment inherited by a person who assumes a leadership position in a toxic organization or group. Such toxicity may not be effectively mitigated due to the previous incumbent’s role in a) engaging in or perpetuating abuse/neglect, b) already exhausting avenues to eradicate it, and/or c) organizational, group, or individuals’ conscious or unconscious resistance to the new leader’s attempts to reduce or eradicate the source(s) of toxicity,

In September 2021, I created a survey to further explore the role of this impact factor. This inaugural report shares the first dataset of quantitative responses to this ongoing data collection project (n=53)

Part 2 will share qualitative results. This survey remains open, and I will continue reporting results periodically.
