The workplace is a cultural environment. For some people that’s as obvious as 2 + 2 = 4. What’s fascinating is that all kinds of people do very well at work – while not once having that thought.
For so many, today’s workplace is not something they particularly think about as they plunge in and do the work tasks they’re being paid to do. Some people are very fortunate to be paid well for doing something they love doing – and they see it. They convey their appreciation for their good fortune.
However, for many folks, the workplace is an obstacle course sitting on a minefield. It’s necessary to go there to make a living, but it’s also filled with people – watching, evaluating, demanding, pushing, not cooperating – who can affect someone’s entire ability to have a good day, let alone feel good about life.
