I've been looking at companies that are on a positive path vs. a negative path and I've come to use the language of sports, winning streaks and losing streaks.
Americans don't care what your language is, your race is, whatever. Everyone is there to do their own thing and be successful. I wish people in Britain would be more positive.
Play with your physical workplace in a way that sends positive "body language" to employees and visitors.
Proper posture sends a positive message since 90% of all communication occures through body language and how you carry yourself.
If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.
Positive anything is better than negative nothing.
