Video: Ditch the 'It won't do any good' mindset

In this video, Toni Bowers talks about why so many people are reluctant to directly address problems and why that is the wrong perspective.

It is a phenomenon that seems to be running rampant. Employees who have a problem in the workplace will do anything — seethe in silent anger or complain constantly to their co-workers — rather than approach the boss with the problem.

The common excuse for this is "It won't do any good." In this video, I explain why NOT directly addressing a problem will ensure that nothing will be fixed.
