Coping with Workplace Negativity

Solving a Real Workplace Problem.

It’s draining, distracting, and annoying. Negativity has a way of creating a darkness around the workplace.

Now you can shine some light on the problem and Build a Better Life in your workplace.

Negativity in the Workplace

It’s always that one person in the office. No matter what you say, how you say it, or what is said – he or she responds in a negative manner. It’s tiring, infuriating, and stressful. It makes us want to avoid that person and tkes up valuable time and energy in the workplace or in our social lives.

We depend heavily on each other behaving respectfully in the workplace. Being at work brings you into contact with the words and actions of others – even if only by email or memo.   And here’s the hard truth: The way that people engage in the workplace – the words and actions they use with you, with each other — has a huge impact on how you feel about work, the workplace, and maybe your life.
