Dealing With Negative Attitudes In The Workplace – One Day Workshop
Every workplace has negative people who erode morale. They’re not always easy to pick out of a crowd, but they can do an amazing amount of damage over time. Most of the time, these folks don’t make the big mistakes that call attention to themselves. They’re frequently pretty good at their jobs, so they’re not called on the carpet too often.
But like a virus running in the background of a computer program, their acidic personalities eat away at the goals, and ultimately the bottom line of the company week after week, year after year.
Who are these people? They’re the employees who:
- Continually find things to complain about and exaggerate the seriousness of co-workers’ mistakes
- Spread gossip and start rumors that pit employees against each other
- Talk negativitly behind co-workers’ backs, and
- Undermine supervisors’ authority with a never-ending flow of criticism that stays under-the-radar so it’s rarely recognized and corrected.
Managers need a strategy to deal with this constant drag on employee attitudes.
- How to identify and deal with the most common types of negative attitudes in the workplace
- Specific steps you can take to introduce positive change to a negative situation
- How to keep the negative thinking of a few from spreading to the many
- The warning signs that excessive negativity is influencing your whole organisation
You don’t have to accept negativity in your associates, your employees or even in your organisation.The purpose of this eye-opening day of training is to give you the skills to identify problem areas, deal effectively with negative attitudes and turn around these behaviours wherever you find them.You’ll learn the root causes of pessimism, cynicism and negativity; you’ll learn how to handle a chronically negative attitude; and you’ll learn how to inoculate yourself against the negative influence of others.The negative people you deal with aren’t going to change on their own—you have to put the wheels in motion.
