[Click here for your free subscription to "Boosting Employee Morale]

Negativism is a frequent challenge that supervisors need to deal with. 

If left "unchecked" it will most definitely spread and has the potential to do some costly damage. 

The source of negativism can be varied including:  personal issues, individual attitudes or personalities, constant negative feedback, harsh criticism, or even burnout. What can you do to overcome negativism? 

Provide encouragement for employees when you see them struggling. 

When a project is done well give positive feedback in the form of verbal praise, monetary rewards, additional time off or public recognition.

Above all, remind employees that they have choices and that their contribution makes a difference in the success or failure of the organization and team.
