With the pressure on managers and individuals, we cannot afford to allow workplace negativity to go unchecked. When the pressure is on, everyone needs to be more engaged and more focused on the mission and goals. Negativity saps enthusiasm and results in cynicism, detachment, and minimal performance. Learn strategies to counter the negative forces while forging a team of maximum performers, who achieve their goals and get results the organization demands.
Managers report negativity sometimes in individuals and sometimes as part of the general environment. Both are destructive and must be corrected.
