Whether it’s big picture corporate conflicts, like power struggles and layoffs, or something that affects you more personally, like getting passed over for a promotion or having a difficult worker on your team, dealing with any negative influences at work is just added stress that can sidetrack you from being the most effective kind of leader.
Negative attitudes – yours or your team members – can poison a workplace atmosphere, if not handled quickly and effectively. However, when people work together through the process of resolving a conflict in a positive way, often better and more creative solutions develop than if everyone had been on the same page from the beginning.
We at Progressive Women’s Leadership would like to know if you’ve found ways to deal with workplace negativity effectively. Please take our How Do You Deal With Workplace Negativity? survey. Our intent is to get the results to you quickly (within a few weeks) so that we might be part of the solution for you.
