How do you deal with such a problem? Well here are some tips:
1. If there is one person in the group that is always negative with “the world is coming to the end” speech everyday then walk away from them. Their mood does not have to bring you down. Remember that is only their opinion.
2. Sit down and discuss with the individual as they may not realize exactly how they are coming across to everyone else. They may be shocked at first but hopefully they will start to see the positive side of life.
3. Or ask them if they have something negative to say to please keep it to themselves as you do not deal in negativity and prefer to be happy.
4. If none of the above work talk to your boss. You may feel bad discussing their attitude but if they are affecting the group’s performance then you have good reason to bring it up.
Have a wonderful evening!
