What is a trait that makes for a successful individual? A successful leader? A successful team? There are many characteristics that we can all agree are extremely important to the success of someone or a group of people. When you look at your circumstances, your situation- is the glass half full or half empty? Positive people tend to be people we want to surround ourselves with. Certainly on a team, negativity is a dangerous attribute that spreads fast and furious and once it gets in- it starts to perpetuate. Let it be known on your team and in your life- you won’t tolerate this and you won’t get sucked into it. We are not advocating “PollyAnna’s” – however there is a tremendous difference between a “woe is me” attitude and a “hey I am struggling thru something yet I know I can overcome”.
Who do you want to be around and even more important- which kind of trait do you want to be influencing your team?
