Creating WE Institute - Workplace Negativity

The Center for Sustainable Leadership together with The Creating WE Institute are offering a 4-hour workshop titled Workplace Negativity - Performance Inhibitor or Business Accelerator?

Workplace negativity has been blamed for everything from stagnate productivity to declining morale. Management gurus routinely offer advice on how to "overcome" negativity and several bestselling books have been published on the topic. But what if negativity was not necessarily a bad thing? What if, instead of being something to be overcome, negativity could be harnessed as a source of heightened productivity and breakthrough innovation? Learn how companies like Capital One, IBM and Motorola are using this new understanding of negativity to enhance leadership effectiveness and improve teamwork.

In this 4-hour program, you will:
  • Learn why traditional approaches to managing negativity "leave money on the table"
  • Learn about a radical new understanding regarding the nature of negativity and how, when properly interpreted, negative emotions can become a source of penetrating insight, heartfelt compassion and breakthrough creativity
  • Learn a 5-step method for transforming negative emotions into prudent action and apply this method to an emotionally-charged situation at work
  • Leave with a Workbook and Job Aid to support you in applying these principles in your day-to-day interactions.
