Dominating the news of late is the recent controversy surrounding the culture of the Australian Armed Forces in relation to bullying, sexism and an ignorant approach to the systemic problems that seem fairly deep seated within the ranks. This week was also the sentencing of a Melbourne café owner where several workers bullied an apprentice to the point of suicide.

Aside from the obvious systemic failures in both these circumstances, I think another factor at play is in one word, ‘attitude’.

A negative attitude breeds intolerance, persecution and in less serious scenarios than the ones mentioned above, a considerable reduction in productivity.
