In today’s Episode…

We’re talking about coworkers. You know the one. The negative Nancy. The Downer Dan. The Grumpy… Griffin?

We have all had coworkers who are disengaged and unhappy in their jobs, and who let their frustration loose on their coworkers and sometimes even their guests.  It’s super frustrating, and it’s easy to let it get you down!

Watch our chat this week for some ideas on how to help that coworker to get them out of their funk, or, if that doesn’t work, how to protect yourself so it won’t bring you down.
