“Negativity in the workplace” – the phrase has become almost cliché, hasn’t it? And the fact that it’s so “common” speaks volumes about the environments we face when we show up for work every day. Lower morale, lower productivity, lower customer service.
So what can we do about such a predictable, but demotivating, scenario? In this full-day face-to-face workshop, we’ll cover three primary sources of negativity in our workplaces: our patrons, our co-workers, and ourselves! We’ll discuss what causes it, how we can recognize it, and specific tips on how to handle it.
Don’t miss this opportunity to spend time reflecting on this very human side of your workplace. You’ll come away with a new perspective on what others perceive as inevitable – you’ll discover ways to deal with it!
- analyze where the negativity in their workplaces might be originating
- reflect on what part they may be playing in creating a negative environment
- develop a list of ways they can deal with negativity, no matter the source
