Recently I was visiting Tanveer Naseer’s website. There was one article in particular the caught my attention, and I thought it was worthwhile sharing at least a small piece of the article with you. It has to do with the importance of creating an optimistic workplace.
I think it is so valuable, that as leaders, our people feel good about coming to work every day. Even if their home life is stressful, being able to come to work, do what you do best and to contribute with your colleagues to a common cause, is such an important thing to do. So, take a few minutes and briefly consider Tanveer’s insights on workplace optimism.
Workplace optimism is a description for a climate that gives employees hope that good things will come from hard work. Optimistic workplaces emerge when leaders purposefully highlight what’s right with the environment and what’s possible when finding solutions to problems.
Employees don’t need to be optimists to appreciate workplace optimism. What makes such a positive environment effective is that it’s rooted in what unites us as humans: relatedness, purpose, goals, and even meaning.
