Negativity hurts performance, productivity and profitability. This program focuses on two key factors that can shift a work culture towards more positivity: work environment and individual perspectives. Tina shares actionable strategies you can use to help employees (and yourself) develop a more positive perspective that leads to greater teamwork, engagement and resilience.


You will also learn the 5 factors needed to create an environment that makes it easier for your people to bring their best. Studies show the importance of these factors for motivation and engagement in the workplace. You will leave with ideas on how you can improve these areas in your own organization.
