Understanding the Dynamics of Staff Retention

Research has shown that employees start thinking about leaving before they actually decide and act on it. This is hardly a surprise to anyone.

Neutralizing Negativity in the Workplace

Neutralizing negativity in the workplace is important because it is one of the most common, and deeply ingrained, obstacles to a healthy work environment. When working with front-line employees, supervisors, and mid-level managers in a variety of industries, I’m often asked, “What can I do to create more positive interactions in my workplace? People are so negative here!”
