3 “Everything can be taken from a person but one thing; the last of the human freedoms - - to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” ~ Victor Frankel, Auschwitz Prisoner Author Man’s Search for Meaning

4 “Bad attitudes have become mainstream. Irreverence, criticism, and disrespect are at the forefront of our humor, entertainment, media, political discourse, and everyday conversation. These personal attacks and ‘character assassinations’ occur so often, they are no longer shocking or noteworthy. We have become desensitized to such attacks. We do not just disagree with someone’s ideas and actions, we attack their intelligence, ethics, and morals. Managers have moved from guideposts to whipping posts and frequently bear the brunt of employees’ personal feelings of insecurity and inadequacy, outside problems that filter into the workplace, employees’ lack of personal preparation and failure to position themselves for tomorrow’s workplace opportunities as well as stalled careers.” ~ Harry Chambers, Author The Bad Attitude Survival Guide

5 We have experienced an erosion of respect for people, positions, and institutions. Employees are holding you accountable for crimes you never committed and problems you do not have the power to fix. It comfortably distances employees from responsibility. Today’s employees are less fearful of what you might do to them and more resentful of what they perceive you haven’t done for them. We are no longer motivated to avoid loss. Blaming is a comfortable way to distance themselves for any responsibility, affirms their righteousness, and avoids accountability for unresolved issues. Bad attitude employees do not differentiate between a four alarm blazing fire and a burned marshmallow. We have experienced an erosion of respect for people, positions, and institutions.

6 Antagonism is fashionable. There is always someone or something to be against. There is no middle ground. We tend to think in absolutes. Every decision they make is wrong. They are always out to get me (us). Everything the boss or company does is wrong. The company will do everything they can to get me. With the advantage of hindsight, elapsed time and observable results, we have become experts at being post-event critical. After-the-fact geniuses -- used by those who are not secure enough to put themselves on the line and take risk. Antagonism is fashionable. There is always someone or something to be against.
