“One bad apple don’t spoil the whole bunch girl . . .” (If you are old enough to remember the Osmonds and this song, it is now stuck in your head and I’m sorry. If you don’t know the song, here is a link to it if you are curious)
And after hearing it, I began thinking about the premise for my new teleseminar – One Poisoned Apple . . . Transform Toxic Attitudes and Keep Negativity from Infecting Your Workplace. If we do it right, the single bad apple of attitude doesn’t have to spoil the whole team or department. But if we don’t do it right, bad attitude can spread quickly.
Because the truth is that attitude is a contagion in any group of people. And if we aren’t spreading the one we want, we may end up with a rampant negative attitude virus on our hands.
