Dealing with Negative People

Dealing with negative people is not an easy thing to do. All too often, a negative person can drain the energy and creative focus from you.

It’s this very creative focus that’s needed to lead and guide your company to grow and stay on the cutting edge.

So what can you do when you find yourself dealing with negative people on a regular basis?

Well, one thing you can do is continually remind yourself that the negativity they are expressing is more about them and less about you. Negativity is a self-perception issue. It is a mindset, a way of thinking, that becomes entrenched in the mind of the person.

So as you deal with such a negative person, let that negativity slide off your back. Don’t give it a second thought. In other words, do not let it take up any space in your head. It does not deserve a second thought, glance, or precious brain cell. You have to realize the person you are dealing with.

On a more positive note, you may want to deal with the person by leaving them with encouragement and positivity, rather than feed into that negativity.

As a leader, you will need to deal with all types. Being able to safely navigate through such times will be most helpful for you.
