You've felt unhappy at your job for some time now. You've told yourself it would get better, but it just doesn't. You may even feel like a different person than when you started in your position. Perhaps you find yourself participating in negative behaviors like gossip, backbiting, or glory stealing. Maybe you get a little pit of loathing in your stomach when a certain co-worker or boss approaches you. You parcel out the workweek. If I can just make it to...lunch...five o'clock...Wednesday...Friday...the weekend. During the weekend, the freedom is tainted because you spend too much time dwelling on the situations at work to enjoy it. Half or more of Sunday is spent worrying Monday like a loose tooth. So how did you get to this point? Is it a quarter-life crisis? A mid-life crisis? A rut? It's definitely some sort of discontent, but where did it come from? Chances are you're experiencing a problem at work. It may be a person, situation, or culture issue, or even one you have created for yourself. Whichever issue is giving you problems, unless you take action to correct what's going on, the pressure is just going to get worse. If things don't get better soon, you feel like you may explode. Your temper will be shorter, your mind cloudier, and you may find your health starting to decline. Stress related consequences are real, magazines and online media are rife of articles about stress. You may not even recognize the person you have become. You need to step back and examine exactly what is going on. You need to re-evaluate your interactions with those around you. You need to place some insulation between your life and your work. You need to remind yourself that you are in control. I was just like you. At the end of my fourteen year corporate career, I was unrecognizable by previous peers and bosses. My family was genuinely concerned for my health and wellbeing. I went from being a positive, upbeat person to a broken, negative being that reflected the inappropriate and offensive environment that surrounded me on a daily basis. Our workplace became a den of backbiting, gossip, favoritism, manipulation, and fear. And I allowed myself to become the reflection of all that was bad around me. I did not take action, and I paid the price. This program is built from my time reflecting on what I could've and should've done. Most of the steps and actions were known to me during my slide into becoming one of the negative people. I had the knowledge and skills, I just didn't use them. I honestly believe that if I had followed these steps, taken these actions, I wouldn't have allowed myself to get to the point of having nightmares and being miserable. The Positive Solution to a Negative Workplace is a step-by-step guide to help you evaluate your circumstances at work. It will allow you to place boundaries between yourself and others while you see your situation with a fresh pair of eyes. It will sharpen your skills, some of which you probably already possess, and give you a sense of control over your own destiny. Just as you have to be the one to make the changes at work, you have to be the one to give The Positive Solution to a Negative Workplace a try. If you want something to change, you have to change something. Get your copy now and pursue that change.
