Do your colleagues perceive you as having a negative attitude? Here are a few suggestions to help manage that reputation:
- Partner with your manager on ways in which you can improve your attitude at work. A perception of having a negative attitude at work is not a good foundation upon which to build your visibility.
- Work with a career coach who can help you explore the origination of your negative attitude and create strategies to improve your attitude.
- Read a book (e.g., Success through a Positive Mental Attitude by Napoleon Hill) or an article on improving a negative attitude.
- Take some “you” time to think about how you can improve your attitude. Sometimes a break from work can help improve a negative attitude or the perception of one.
