CONTAIN THE ISSUE, DON'T SPREAD IT.
It can be really tempting to set a new policy in response to the mistakes on one negative employee, but that's not always the best thing to do. Doing so can feel like a punishment to your other employees and could possibly cause even more negativity in the workplace. This is just something to think about if you are dealing with negativity in your office. Remember, that you have options. One employee's negativity doesn't need to be the cause of a massive negative impact on the whole office.

SOLVE THE PROBLEM WITHOUT MAKING IT WORSE.
You may have a really good employee who just feels a bit lost and because of that, they are exhibiting negative behavior at work that could be affecting others. With that in mind, handle these matters delicately. For example, if you are meeting with an employee who has been brought to your attention, guide them. Turn this negative situation into a positive one.

BE THE BOSS YOUR EMPLOYEES WANT TO TALK TO. 
Negativity can be like a virus in a workplace and if you don't manage it, morale can become bad. Be the person your employees can come to when they have an issue. Put yourself in their shoes. How would you feel if you were working for someone that you felt like you couldn't talk to when something was bothering you at work? Our guess that feeling would be somewhat negative.

USE EMPATHY WHEN NECESSARY.
You never know what another person, meaning an employee, may be going through outside of work. As a manager, you should never assume anything. Be human when handling these situations. If you've noticed a change in a certain employee's behavior, reach out, but in a subtle, kind way. You'd be amazed how much you could help just by offering a few kind words to an employee who is going through something awful. Not only could you be doing a kind act but you could be helping them turn their attitude around at work, thus improving their productivity.
