Event Details

Positive leaders, positive work environments, and positive engaged employees produce positive results. We all know that nothing affects employee morale more insidiously than persistent workplace negativity. It zaps the energy of your organization and diverts critical attention from work and performance.

Negativity occurs in the attitude, outlook, and talk of one staff person, or in a crescendo of voices responding to a workplace situation.

Negative people are not going to change on their own and employers cannot continue to allow them to infect the organization. So why does negativity cost organizations $300 billion and sabotage teamwork, careers, morale, and performance? In this session, you will find out. We will also cover:

  • How to deal with griping, whining, and gossiping.
  • How changing your words and your questions can change your thoughts, behaviors, and outcomes
  • Ideas and suggestions for actions you can put into place right away to help turn the culture around and have a little more fun in the workplace.


This session will offer you an opportunity to laugh and learn. Rather than focusing on who or what is wrong, or blaming others for negative outcomes, each staff member needs to look at what's right with the organization and what each person can do to make a difference. You will leave knowing you can and need to make a difference!
