How to make it a positive work environment with negative people

Working with negative people isn't good for your health. It adds stress to your day, disrupts your productivity, makes you grumpy, and if you bring it home, that spreads to your family like a virus. All because of this one person at work who makes their problems, your problems.

Or pushing that impulsive product on the customer as they're paying for their purchases. Now, what's the impression that we're leaving with that customer as they exit your office, website or store? And will they want to return?
Let's look at a...

Do you have an employee who tends to take over a project, or doesn't take feedback well? Or corrects others in mid sentence? If so, you most likely have a perfectionist employee, and need to read on before this starts to affect your business. Or has it already?
