If you’re running a workplace, then it’s in your best interests to ensure that everyone is happy, fulfilled, and satisfied in their work. If they are, then not only will there be a more pleasant atmosphere in the workplace, but you’ll find that work productivity and output is much better than if there is a hostile environment.
Alas, while we might hope for a positive workplace, this isn’t always possible. Employees are only human, after all, and if you put people together in one room for a long enough time, then there will be some conflict and negativity. The causes of this negativity can be varied; it could that one employee is bringing other people down. It could be that the staff doesn’t feel valued by the company, or that certain staff members are becoming hostile to changes that you’re trying to implement.
The cause of the negativity isn’t really the issue; what matters is that you’re taking steps to move beyond it. By identifying the negativity and using your leadership to correct the issue, you can steer your workplace back on track, even when it seems like you’re in a pit of negativity. Of course, this isn’t something that can happen overnight, or without having the leadership skills to make it happen.
As such, it’s important that you work on improving the conflict management side of your leadership. You’ll find some useful tips on how to handle negativity in the workplace in the infographic below, which was produced by USC.
