In my role as a leader, I often thought, “I wish that there was some way to make my team culture more positive!”
“If only, everyone could be focused on the good things in each other instead of picking on the negative!”
Does that sound familiar to you?
It is true that our brains are wired to be biased towards negativity. What we focus on grows and we have a natural tendency to focus on the things that go wrong. However, when are constantly focusing on the negative, this will become the vibe of our team and the undercurrent of our work environment. Since we spend such a significant amount of time in our place of work, negativity and stress can be harmful to our well being and to our team culture.
Research has shown when we shift our focus to gratitude, we cope with stress better, we are happier and healthier and more satisfied in our jobs and our lives.
