Positive Tips for a Positive Workplace

February 2nd, 2018

We all know that positivity can make everything fall into place. Imagine you’re having a bad day. You can slip into negativity allowing everything else that happens to you to annoy you, or you can choose to have a positive outlook and overcome the negative experience. The same is true in your office every day. Some of your employees will be having a bad day and some will be having a good day. The single most important thing to affect their productivity and engagement will be the overall atmosphere of the workplace itself. So how can you have a positive workplace? Here are some tips to get you started.

Show gratitude.

Saying thank you can go a long way, and often employers don’t say it enough. But not only should you say it frequently, but you should create a culture of gratitude in your office. Gratitude is contagious, and as more people say thank you to one another, the more positive the overall atmosphere will be.

Celebrate little wins.

Most companies will celebrate the big stuff like hitting major goals or landing a huge customer. But sometimes, it’s all about the little victories. Take time to acknowledge whenever someone does something worthy of recognition. This can go a long way toward feeling appreciated on the job.

Focus on being positive.

If negative attitudes breed more negativity, then it goes without saying that positive energy will create more positive energy. So even when things go wrong, focus on the positive. How can you solve a problem? How can you stay engaged? How can you encourage your team in tough times?

Be sure to smile.

The physical act of smiling is enough to put many people at ease. We’re not saying that you have to completely change your personality or the state of your resting face, but smile when you engage with others. When you’re listening or speaking, a smile can allow the message to remain positive. You’ll notice more general smiling around the office as well.

Know the mission.

Finally, at all times, make sure you know your company’s mission and live it. Encourage others to live it as well.
