*NEW* Agility: The New Mindset for Today’s Worker

Working from home requires a new set of emotional and interpersonal skills. In order for companies to survive
today’s turbulence they must create an agile mindset within their culture, whether employees are working together
or virtually. Budget cuts and reduced staffing will add to the emotional impact of relationships with employees,
managers and customers. Emotional intelligence (EQ) is a person’s ability to understand and manage their own
emotions within a situation and use this insight to communicate appropriately. An agile approach to workplace
interactions is an empowering and engaging experience for everyone involved.

Don’t Let the Bad Apples Drive You Bananas

Are you working with, serving, or even living with someone who has a bad attitude? Like the cliché “One bad apple spoils the whole bunch”, one person with a bad attitude can have a negative impact on the entire team! Just being around someone who complains, whines, or just doesn’t do or say anything can cause people to feel frustrated, angry, or even helpless. In fact, studies show that 68% of people (employees and customers) quit or leave a company because of one employee’s bad attitude. Bad attitudes in the workplace can deteriorate morale, lower productivity, and increase costs. It doesn’t take much for a co-worker, manager, or customer to feel the negative effects from someone with a bad attitude.
