Hostility in the workplace is not going to lead to your company’s success on any level be it daily or long-term. Finding a way to prevent negative energy from taking root and pushing forward is going to make a big difference in the way you work. The key is to lead your employees and set an excellent example of how to behave.
Lay the foundation for your team to keep workplace hostility to a minimum.
If you’re in a leadership position, then employees are going to be looking up to you in many ways. One of those ways is in how you handle problems and how you interact with other staff members. You need to create and actively contribute to a comfortable working environment. You can do that by showing respect to your employees and conducting yourself in a professional manner during work hours. This isn’t to say that you should live up in an ivory tower either. You should make yourself available to your staff; be friendly.
Alleviate workplace hostility by bringing your workforce together.
Each and every one of your employees is, at the end of the day, just a person. Make sure that the environment you are all working is remains humanizing rather than impersonal and unreasonable. Think of their mistakes as teachable moments when you can share your wisdom and help your employee grow. You don’t need to be friends with everyone you work with, but you should understand their professional needs and habits so that you can all work together to create a healthy working environment.
