Help Your Team Shake a Bad Mood

Morning traffic, spilled coffee, running late — it’s not uncommon for people to arrive to work harried and annoyed. But if your team members start the day in a bad mood, they’re likely to stay that way, which can affect their performance. Luckily it’s possible to help people hit the reset button and shake a negative morning mood. Consider sending positive messages in the morning or holding a regular team huddle to help people transition and experience a better mood as they start their workday. Providing food or celebrating accomplishments can also help people turn around a bad start. Be mindful of how your behavior can contribute to, or even  worsen, a negative mood. Avoid setting up intense meetings  first thing in the morning, and don’t send late-night emails that will give people a full inbox when they arrive at the office.
