Having a positive attitude at work is a vital part of building a good reputation. A good attitude requires that you show optimism, flexibility and politeness. If you’re struggling and tend to be perceived by your colleagues as having a negative attitude at work:
- Partner with your manager on ways to improve your attitude.
- 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 can help create a more positive attitude at work or the perception of one.
