Want to Know What it Costs to Put Up with Bad Attitudes at Work?

Do you have leaders or highly talented employees with bad attitudes in your organization? A study from the United Kingdom showed that while unemployment is associated with poor health, it appears that psychological stressors and poor quality work are just as bad as for your health as being unemployed.

So, it seems that those employees cause more harm to the workplace atmosphere than their brilliance affords. Some clients complain that these individuals’ behaviour creates an intolerable work atmosphere for others, leading to illness, high stress turnover, and poor relational well-being at work.

A RAND study showed that one third of USA employees reported experiencing hostility and a poor social environment at work; while a  Canadian study shows that up to 40% of Canadians report to have been bullied at work.

Ignoring the impact of these employees’ behaviour, can hurt the reputation and culture of your workplace, most times more than you gain in monetary benefits and profits. It may be hard to see the slow decay of your workplace culture, but it is very apparent to your customers when they engage with your employees on the phone.

Many employers tell me they keep someone with poor interpersonal skill in their employment because they have great tactical skills, or they are very organized. A common reasoning is that he/she out performs their counterpart. Ever wonder why? Maybe its because they are too busy protecting themselves from his/her ego, to get any work done.

Many of these leaders and high performers are not bad people, they are just misaligned and out of touch with their impact on others. What they need is a touch of humanity. Something that shifts their mindset and get them thinking of “we” instead of “me”.

It is very rewarding to see that transformation take place. Over the last 21 years I have had the pleasure of working with hundreds of individuals with such issues. I often laughingly tell my clients that they hire me to bring the humanity back into the workplace.

To aide me in doing so, I created the powerful nine-dimensional wellness system coaching program to help employees change their mindset and their behaviours. They begin to see the benefit of systems and they work in a positive way. This sets the foundation for their transformation. We have had a 90% success rate working with clients who need this kind of life reality, humanity adjustment. You don’t have to suffer with poor interpersonal skills or over active egos at work anymore. We help clients around the globe to work with these challenging attitudes to readjust their behaviour.
