Track 06: Attitude in the Workplace

Negative Attitudes (Toxic)

  Nothing will ever get better.

 Nobody is telling me what to do.

 I will only do what’s required of me.

 It won’t work and can’t be done.

  The other department should have taken care of it.

Positive Attitudes (Encouraging)

  There is always tomorrow.

 What can I do to make this a better place?

 I appreciate the benefit of working here.

 I am willing to learn.

  I will give my best because it’s right.

If you have two or three of the negative attitudes, it’s time for a change, one way or the other. If you have two or three of the positive attitudes, your organization is benefiting from your work ethic.
