Finding Darth Vader: Deal with the Light Eaters and Your Negativity Problems Go Away (For leaders, managers, and supervisors)
Negative and resistant people can be helpful, irritating or dangerous. But most leaders (and coworkers) lump negatively-oriented employees together and treat them the same. That is a big mistake. Managers make things worse by the way they lead negative employees: they engage the helpful negative people too late and too long, intensify the irritating negative people by ignoring them, and strengthen the dangerous negative people by fighting them. As a result, the crabby people win, and their influence pulls down the rest of the team or organization.
This presentation uses laughter and unforgettable metaphors to teach leaders and coworkers how to tell the difference among the three types of negative employees — the Hound Dogs, the Yippers and Yappers, and the Light Eaters. It also provides simple and practical answers to the most popular questions hundreds of leaders have asked about turning negative situations around:
- How can we keep negative people from taking over our team?
- How can we identify the helpful negative employees (and keep them from killing innovation)?
- How can we help negative people use their negativity to speed things up rather than bog them down?
- How can we separate the dangerously negative people from the merely irritating?
- How can associates help their managers deal with the dangerous “Light Eaters?”
- How can we turn around positive people who are becoming negative?
- How can we raise the performance of everyone on the team?
Get beyond the negativity and help your team have fun and get more done.
