Attitude: It’s Everything
An individual’s attitude can affect the overall morale of the whole staff and the tone of the workplace.
Research indicates that those with positive attitudes have lower stress levels, less sickness and live longer. As well as improving the environment for colleagues, an optimistic teacher helps students understand the importance of attitude in realizing one’s dreams and potential. Negativity causes conflict and tension in the workplace.
Dealing with Negative Comments
The first step towards resolution is to identify these behaviours; the second is to talk about them and work together to create a healthy and pleasant work environment.

We cannot make other people act in certain ways, but we can make choices regarding our attitude to a situation. A positive attitude can make each day better, and keep us in good health for our entire lives.
