“Being positive doesn’t just make you better; it makes everyone around you better.” – Jon Gordon, The Power of Positive Leadership
Positive people improve any culture. Negative people bring down any culture.
Organizations function at a higher level when the culture is positive. They function at a lower level when the culture is negative.
When we are discipline, when we intentionally and purposefully cultivate positivity, we function at a higher level. We are also happier, inspired to reach new levels of performance and more focused on what really matters.
When we permit negativity, without calling it out, we encourage a negative culture. Don’t permit negativity in your world. Confront negative behavior with positive behavior. Don’t be a bystander and let others bring you, and your team, down. When you permit it, you promote it. Make those around you better.
