Nothing affects employee morale more insidiously than workplace negativity. It saps the energy out of your organization and diverts critical attention from your work and performance. Often the problem is with poor interpersonal communications in organizations rather than with the work itself. That's why solving these communications problems should be a priority for all businesses. This presentation can help. It will show you interpersonal communication skills that can be implemented immediately by individual leaders and groups. It will also teach you how to effectively and efficiently build trust between your employees and leaders so that you can have the positive and optimistic workplace you want.
