Preventing – And Reversing – Workplace Tension and Mistrust
Disappointments and disagreements are a daily part of every workplace. So what makes the difference between teams that handle frustrations constructively and those that spiral into blame and mistrust?
Self-Defeating Habits of Otherwise Brilliant People® empowers individuals from front-line employees to leaders to top executives to build the workplace environment they desire – and deserve. Learn the part you and your colleagues can play in building a resilient culture of integrity and pride in work. Learn why negative assumptions pick up momentum and spread, how to short-circuit destructive disagreement, and eliminate unconscious behaviors that spark power struggles and mistrust.
In a recent Gallup poll, nearly 70% of employees reported that they are disengaged from work or actively undermining the efforts of others. At a cost, Gallup estimates, of 34¢ on the dollar. Fortunately, organizations can reverse these discouraging trends. Thera Rising consistently generates return on investment between 600% and 900%.
