Bad Moods Suffocate Your Team’s Energy, Excitement and Innovation

Bad moods grow and spread unless you resolve to change the climate where your people work

When bad moods descend on your company, it creates huge costs that get written off to “human nature.”

We think bad moods are inhumane.

What do they cost you?

  • Added labor costs?
  • High turnover?
  • Stalled revenue growth?
  • Quality problems?
  • Lost opportunities?
  • Offended clients?
  • Lack of innovation
  • Lack of initiatve and accountability?

Moods spread like viruses, and NO company operates without a mood.  SOMEONE has to decide to nudge their people into a high-performance mood.

 

Stress and bad moods diminish our mental agility.  Resentments and ambivelence interfere with initiative, creativity, accountability and motivation.

Is it affecting your company?

It’s affecting EVERYONE’s company.

In a 2013 survey, Gallup reported that only 13% of employees consider themselves engaged at their jobs

63% admitted they were not engaged and

24% said they were actively disengaged.  

A Driving Cause of bad moods is incivility at the workplace

The Harvard Business Review cites research that found

  • 43% of those treated rundely at work decreased their work output
  • 47% cut back how many hours they spend at the office after being treated rudely
  • 38% intentionally reduced the quality of their work
  • 80% said they lost time brooding over on an incident of incivility
  • 63% said they avoided the offending party, resulting in lost work time
  • 12% said they left their job after the incivility occurred

“The greatest tragedy today is our habit of spreading verbal acid.

The acid of speaking in a disparaging way of the people around us. It’s as if we strive to bring others down to our level so that we won’t be left behind if others grow and expand.

This mode arises out of both fear and from a lack of belief in ourselves.”

George Thompson,

Founder, Verbal Judo Police Training

BAD MOODS STIFLE BUSINESS GROWTH, SUCCESS AND INNOVATION

Is your company in  bad mood? Ask yourself a few simple questions:

Is your staff stressed out, running on fumes?

Are you failing to meet your numbers?

Do you grind your teeth when you hear your senior team badmouthing each other?

Do you pound your head against a wall whenever you see a dynamic, high-profit opportunity (because you can’t source good talent to launch a new initiative)?

Do it drive you crazy that your people keep dragging you into day-to-day operations?

to resolve problems they were expected to anticipate?

Do you carry tensions and frustrations home with you when you leave the office?

Does the workday leave you exhausted?

Do key lieutenants have blind spots that they won’t acknowledge or resolve?

Does your body tense when you see ongoing conflict obstructing your growth?

Are you unable to meet with key thought leaders to help influence the market?

Do you WISH you could schedule time to map out a coherent strategy?

How Mood Contagions Start and Proliferate

You’ve had bad moods – it’s an altered state of behavior

When you get in a bad mood, you’re never at your best.

You’re distracted; you dwell on something that got violated. You’re in another moment.You act on impluse.

You have a delicious feeling of certainty. It’s not a choice; you must act. Now.

It feels great at the time, but that small voice says you’ll regret it tomorrow.  Still,  you “need to” act.

Maybe you lash out. You do some mean-spirited thing.  You dismiss your inner voice.

Then you see everyone around you is in a bad mood, too.  Somehow, that makes it worse.

Now you’re headed for a downward spiral together.

There’s a flip side to moods; being around other people who keep getting in bad moods. 

It’s disgusting, right? You shut down.  You want to get away.

When they rant, fume or throw a pity party, you flle your shoulders slump and your muscles tighten.  Your jaw clenches. It’s hard to get work done. It’s hard to be at your best.

I’s easy to slip into a bad mood of your own.

One person in a bad mood can suck all the air out of the room.  A whole group’s energy can just fizzle out. Everything they were looking forward to getting done suddenly seems inconceivable.

Bad moods at the office work the same way…

They stop your people from meeting your goals.

When your team gets down,

  • Revenue goals slip
  • Innovation stalls
  • Employees loose motivation
  • Leaders get mired down in day to day operational crises
Sure, you can adopt all those official, sanctioned methods to push through your agenda.
No one will criticize you for doing what everyone else does.

But you’re not after the same results as everyone else, are you?

Those sanctioned approaches just don’t work.  Let us show you the difference that makes a differenece.
