    Get the Grouch Out

    Ever worked for a grouch? Ever worked with a grouch? I bet you looked forward to going to work each day. Ever been the grouch? I’m sure we’ve all taken turns being the grouch at work. Occasionally, it’s a great way to let off steam but making a habit of it only leads to attracting other grouches and pushing away the Positive people. Modeling positivity as a leader helps teammates learn by example, increasing the Positivity around you. Being a positive team member makes you memorable and more attractive to be asked to join special projects or be groomed for the next promotion.

    How can you use your Positivity to advance at work and improve the culture?
