As a tribal business owner, supervisor or employee, you know gossip, negative talk, being out of the loop or not getting feedback to do your job effectively can disrupt the workplace. An unbalanced work environment creates stress and job dissatisfaction that affects everyone's health, well-being and optimal performance. Neglecting any of these can lead to excessive absenteeism, low morale, poor productivity, lack of energy and focus, and missed deadlines.
