It only takes one negative employee to "spoil the lot" for the rest. Developing a more positive attitude is something that can be learned through "Attitude Readjustment." Most people will get into a "rut of thinking" at some time in their life.Unfortunately, they do not have specific strategies for reducing or challenging their negative self-talk that leads to bad morale and poor work performance.
