Attitude Virus: Curing Negativity in the Workplace, Government Version
Run time: 20 Minutes
This video training will introduce you to the common attitude virus carriers:
- The Steamer, who blows his lid
- The Perfectionist, who wields 'quality' like a weapon
- The Resister, who is threatened by change
- The Not-My-Jobber, whose narrow views block progress
- The Rumor Monger, who spreads stories everywhere
- The Uncommitted, who simply doesn't care
- The Pessimist, who expects the sky to fall no matter what
If you spot these warning signs, an attitude virus could be spreading through your department: resisting change, lack of commitment, spreading gossip, misdirected anger and condescending perfectionism.
Participants will benefit by learning to take responsibility for their own attitudes and success, plus, underlying causes for unproductive attitudes will be resolved and fewer personal problems will affect work. These better attitudes will positively impact team results and the efficiency of your government agency.
