    Emotional vampires tend to drain the energy of everyone they encounter. These “vampires” tend to suck out your optimism, and enthusiasm rather than your blood. Their toxic behaviors can range from subtle comments, to full blown drama. These vampires, it can be one, or one hundred in an organization, affect workplace productivity and lowers morale. It is essential to stop having your energy drained from you. One way is to learn to identify the different types of behavior they possess.

These skills are often seen as crucial to support executives, but the truth is leaders at all levels need to keep things organized and on time to be proactive and to develop a vision for their team or organization.
