A negative workplace is harmful to both employees and management. It causes turnover, disengagement, lowered productivity, turnover, lawsuits, brand damage, and so much more. This growing negativity has numerous sources including toxic leaders, economic pressures, work-life balance issues, rapid change, record levels of turnover, the wrong people on the bus, and more.

Hoping this will get better on its own, is wishful thinking. It’s time to take the challenge on directly. As the old song goes, you have to accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative! This program is all about doing just that!

Why you should Attend

A negative work environment can be created by numerous factors including toxic leaders, economic pressures, work-life balance issues, rapid change, record levels of turnover, employee disengagement…and more.
