Cranky Teams

Catherine Tomczyk wrote an interesting piece on “detoxifying negative environments” in ComputerWorld this week:

    She handed out pink index cards to every member of the staff and told them to write down the best thing that happened to them in the past week… The cards were to be filled out daily. “I started getting descriptions of sunsets or things like, ‘I sat with my daughter and watched a movie last night,'” she says. “They actually started looking forward to writing down their happy thoughts every day.” As a result of thinking more positively, Tomczyk says, the team became more energetic and proactive.
