Are you the ‘go to’ positive person at work?
Do you work with people who remind you of the walking dead? They drag themselves around, chin on the floor, un-engaged, un-involved and with nothing to say. That is, unless it’s something negative. If they’re like that at work, chances are they are equally unimpressive at home, but not always. Perhaps they hate their job, dislike their boss, or find their colleagues equally as irritating. It is important to realize though, are you a positive person at work?
Either way, we want them out. We are tired of tippy-toeing around them, hoping they won’t come to work today so the whole team won’t have to endure more misery.
What are you like at work? Are you a positive person?
- Would people say you are always happy, helpful and optimistic?
- Would they say mostly you are moody, unhelpful and disorganised.
- If you want to be the optimistic, ‘go to’ person at work, think about your attitude and how you behave at work. To be optimistic, you must see the glass as ‘half full’, be willing to help others and ALWAYS say good things about others.
A rule to go by goes all the way back to a lesson my mum taught me. If you have nothing nice to say about somebody, say nothing!
Become the positive, go to person your team needs and the world will be your oyster.
