I'm finding a lot of information on how to improve the negativity of your directs. But I'm searching for how to help yourself maintain your own positivity when working on this tasks. It's really tough to remain positive when there are some seriously strong negative personalities around. It's even harder when they have been with the company "forever" and you are newer and younger than them! Add to that the "If it's not broke, don't fix it" corporate culture and they've doing things the same way for 30 years.
