Have you ever been in a situation where you probably felt underappreciated or overworked? A couple of things are a direct result. First, you start to hate your job. As a result of hating your job, you become less productive. By becoming less productive, you distract others and convince them to feel the same way. By distracting others, more people are less productive. When your team becomes less productive, they start to question their abilities as professionals and do not live up to their potential. Pretty crazy how this can happen huh?
I’m sure you’ve seen those Direct TV commercials that explain a similar slippery slope and the person’s eventual absurd downfall! But take a second and think about this scenario. Has it happened? Is it happening?
