Dealing with negativity at work can sometimes appear to be an insurmountable task. Our typical workplace has its ups and downs in terms of employee negativity. However, constant negative thinking can spread like wildfire across the normally positive workplace. It’s difficult to understand and control.
Whether it’s an employee expressing disagreement about a new policy or a group of co-workers frustrated by the latest operating system, negative attitudes can affect how people interact, and more importantly, how it will affect each person’s productivity.
One of the most difficult situations occurs when a work environment has personalities that continuously express negativity in every situation. These employees may be passive-aggressive, complainers, remain quiet and unresponsive, or are just downright negativists who say, “It won’t work,” or “It’s impossible to do a new idea.”
This training is designed to recognize these different types of negative behaviors and give co-workers, supervisors, subordinates and leaders the tools to address each situation.
