Staying positive builds relationships, helps contribute to a successful shift, and directly impacts the lives of the people we support and the teams surrounding them. As staff, when we maintain a positive attitude, it leads to more natural, successful encounters between staff and the people supported, providing opportunities to learn and grow together.

By maintaining a positive outlook, you cause a contagious, positive vibe that everyone can feel. It isn’t always instantaneous, but with a little practice, you will begin to see the environment around you change from a negative environment to a positive one for all. It is important we remind ourselves and our teammates to practice positivity.

Do you know someone who is a naturally positive presence? Someone who can find the good in just about any situation? Who builds people up? Someone who can build relationships easily with others?
