Enhancing Workplace Culture through Positive Psychology

Learning Overview

Are you seeing these warning signs in your team members?

“I can’t be bothered” attitude – staff showing disinterest in the team’s goals, work projects and activities that often resulted in lower productivity.

Increased absences – staff often take leave or call in sick. Often showing signs of decreased motivation in getting their work done.

Delivered poor quality work – staff is less committed than the past, often make mistakes or fail to meet deadlines.

Displayed negative emotions– staff tends to have negative attitude, low morale, unhappy disposition and quiet.

There should be real concerns over these symptoms that you are getting from your team. Engaging and retaining the right people have always been organizations’ primary concern. The challenge occurs when people who can do the job are often let go due to under-performance and lack of motivation. These issues are often looked at from the perspective of the company looking at an individual’s contribution without exploring the real root cause.
