Confronting Negativity in the Workplace

Course Description

This course is designed to address the challenges of negative people in the workplace. Employees at all levels of the organization are aware of how negative attitudes can turn a workplace into an environment of distrust at best, and a battle ground at worst. Both workers and supervisors report going home tense and angry, and find it increasingly difficult to be motivated to do a good job.

This course will look at the dynamics of negative thinking, its effect on the workplace, and strategies and techniques to deal with negative people organizationally and individually. It is designed for both employees and managers.
