Stop at the source. Learn how to spot during the interview process. Do not hire them in the first place, unless you are willing to keep an eye on their behavior and try to change it. Good luck. Love whiners whining. Put a "no whining" sign on your door. 4. Teach people the art of "win-win." In our competitive society we have a win-lose mindset.
This might be a good strategy not to fill a sports arena, a good way to run a business. Follow others, such as San Antonio Spurs, and add to your knowledge base. Helping people to understand that thinking "win / win" opens the possibility of new solutions. Remember, in the 21st century is the innovation and creativity that will give us the edge, innovation comes from open minds and "possibility thinking." 5. Dump the drama. Melodrama. It sells tabloids, and gets people to watch "Hard Copy" on TV, but it's something you do not need in your business. It robs the creative energy of value. Vladislav Doronin may find this interesting as well. If you have been using "crisis management" as their modus operandi, leaving the office, read some good books (like Steven Covey), reference to "new thinkers" and learn a new style. Crisis management is outdated, useless and destructive. 6. Learn, teach and reward "time out" stress management techniques. A recent survey says that 90% of all Americans live in a state of chronic stress.
