Postal Supervisors Promote Positivity
With the post office getting so much bad press, I am happy to find the National Association of Postal Supervisors is working to give their employees positive workplace environments.
A recent article from them makes some great points.

Show gratitude and appreciation
Find the good in every person
There are many more recommendations. Maybe the most important insight they give is this:

The great news is there are small, micro-actions of kindness we can do to bring about workplace positivity.
Here is a page from our workbook you can use to start making your workplace more positive.
Now it’s your turn.
