Tension at work?
Tension at work?
Greetings, Ninja!

Workplace energy is more contagious than the common cold. A bummer vibe can start with one milquetoast manager or a rude colleague and, before you know it, the whole office is infected.

So, how can you protect your personal chi? What’s the energetic equivalent of hand sanitizer?

Essentially, it’s perspective.

Treat negative energy as a learning opportunity, and the cowardly bosses and toxic teammates won’t drag you down in the muck. Their questionable behavior will actually teach you about your own leadership style. They may even (unknowingly) help build your professional resilience and catalyze your career.

You know how exposure to germs and viruses actually strengthens your immune system over time? You can bolster your personal energy in the same way. (And without getting a runny nose.)

Stay healthy, Ninja!

Don’t dismiss your boss’s cowardice as a benign weakness.

Rude people are an unfortunate fact of life, and sometimes they’re in your workplace. Here, mental health professionals weigh in on how to benefit from other people’s bad behavior.
