As a manager you have to deliver on some goals with your team members and its of immense importance that you get positive support from all your team members.

A teams performance can severely impacted if there is continuous negativity at the workplace among your team members. Negativity leads to low morale and low motivation on the employee. And more seriously negativity can spread rapidly if not brought under control.

Keeping this proximity would help you to identify the symptoms of negativity before its morale-busting consequences damage your workplace. But first let us understand the five major reason that causes of employee negativity.

1. Continuous excessive workload on employee/employees
2. Concerns about management’s ability to lead the company/team forward successfully
3. Anxiety about the his/her own future, growth prospects, income and then retirement security
4. Lack of challenge in their work/ daily tasks, with monotonous work pattern boredom intensifies and so does frustration about work.
