AgileWorkplace success begins with a state of mind.  People typically behave in alignment with their attitudes, thoughts, beliefs, assumptions, expectations and emotions.  Therefore, keeping an eye on what people are thinking or how they are feeling about work can play a significant role in both individual and the collective accomplishments of your team.   Although negativity at first may seem just annoying, it can spread quickly through a team or organization, resulting in higher staff turnover, absenteeism, low morale, distrust, decreased productivity and resistance to new ideas or to change.  An individual’s or team’s mindset often come from “the top,” managers and other influential people inside and outside their team.  Therefore, this workshop will help participants look at their own attitudes, as well as the attitudes of their teams.
