Negativity
can be the downfall of even the most talented teams.  Over the past 18 years as a consultant, I’ve
worked with many organizations that had great people, quality products or
services, and innovative ideas, but the environment in which they worked was
filled with so much negativity, they weren’t able to reach their full
potential.

Creating a
positive work environment is not simply something that feels good, it’s a key
driver in the success and performance of the individuals and teams that make up
the organization. 

If you
think of the most enjoyable work experiences you’ve had, and the most successful
teams you’ve been a part of in your life, you’ll probably notice that the
environment in which you worked was positive.

In the
video below, I share these five specific tips for how to create a positive work
environment:

1)  Stop Complaining

2)  Listen to Each Other

3)  Stop Gossiping

4)  Have Fun Together

5)  Appreciate One Another

I give
examples and tips about each of these ideas in the video.  Feel free to check it out, share it with
others, and integrate these principles with your team to create the most
positive work environment possible.
