Does your organization have enough positive leaders? Do you wonder how others think about the attitudes of your leadership teams? A quick test is to observe the way people react to you when they walk into a room. Are people happy to see them? Do they want to talk to them? Or do they quickly make themselves scarce? If they run when they see your leaders, it’s time for an attitude make-over.
Negativity in organizations was costing US businesses $300 billion/year before the Pandemic (Covid-19). It is imperative that leaders establish a culture of positive leadership. As a leader, others look to you to set the tone for your team/organization. Being engaged and committed to a positive culture is a priority for the leader, and also every employee in the organization.
Organizations that have a positive culture are more productive, have happier employees and most importantly, happy and satisfied customers. Leaders have a choice about his/her attitude – and no matter what the situation, you have a choice to make about how you are going to react. No matter what the current situation is, or who is causing the negativity in your organization/team, it is vital that you create positive strategies that keep the team/organization strong.
