Life coach for toxic workplace

Toxic. That is what a staff member of the Dunedin Public Library said to the ODT about their work environment. Bullying like a bunch of little schoolkids. Is it normal for any school to have a teacher or maybe a principal take care of this, at the DCC they hire a life coach. And like any council this business and life coach, Sally Angus, came at a good price, $60,000. More even then the council’s cost of the big black dildo in the Octagon. Maybe a dildo for all the council staff will ease some frustrations and lower bullying. The ODT revealed miss Angus ‘had been paid $60,469 since 2004 for a series of training, coaching and team-building exercises within the council’s library services department’. According to council human resources manager Bruce Miller bullying is not widespread in the council and the life coach was not at the library specifically to counter the problems, but merely to review team effectiveness. This review, carried out earlier this year, alone cost the taxpayer $17,595. The ODT pressed on at the address of mr Miller but got this responds: “It’s really not a significant issue and I’ve got real work to do”. That what residents have always said. There is real work to be done by council, start doing it.
