Positive, Disruptive Style
I have a positive, if somewhat disruptive style. I’m definitely not rude, but I don’t pull punches either. I’m very upbeat, supportive and can find something positive in just about any given situation. No, I’m not some annoying Pollyanna, but I have found that the “building effect” of a positive outlook really does make a huge difference in my interactions in the world.
Yes, a vast body of research has proven the same thing, but research is one thing and personal experience is quite another. I’m living proof that it works. (If you want to read the research, I’m happy to share some great places to start.)
