Like the corona virus, negativity is highly contagious. There is so much hype on social media on being positive and staying positive ….and the power of the positive seems to have an overriding effect on all the negative stuff that happens.
The message of these feel good gurus on social media is that irrespective of the shit that is hitting the roof, you can make it all go away if you’re positive.
Well that may get clicks on social media, but that is NOT what real life experience says, and certainly not what research from social psychology points to. And, in my practice as an executive coach, I find that many of my clients struggle with figuring out what to do and how to manage team members or colleagues who are toxic.
So, in our conversation today, let’s talk openly about the power of the bad or the negative and the tremendous impact it has on how we operate and on our environment.
