“Reducing Negative Psychological Influences in Team Dynamics?”

A sign of intelligence is one’s ability to learn from experiences and apply this knowledge to future experiences. This becomes a problem, however, when a negative experience impacts our ability to effectively interact with certain people or situations because of residual anger, regret, resentment, or anxiety. Often, conflicts, “bad attitude”, and negative morale are not due to what is going on with the current situation but, rather, are the symptoms of previous negative experiences.


Key points:

  • Understand the true meaning of forgiveness
  • Learn to let go of past issues that negatively color current interactions
  • Set healthy and appropriate boundaries
  • Become empowered in our outcomes
  • Reduce the negative stress in our relationships
  • Reduce chronic anger, frustration, and anxiety

Learning objectives:

  • Improve conflict resolution and mediation skills
  • Develop a deeper understanding of the psychological factors to enhance: motivation, problem solving, and effective change management
  • Reduce “hostile work environment” issues
  • Improve disciplinary and performance improvement protocols
