Attitude!! Attitude!! Attitude defines our Altitude not our Aptitude….which directly link to employees high Productivity



Somebody quotes: “Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.”

Attitudes are thoughts that we have accepted as true and that lead us to think, feel, or act positively or negatively toward a person, idea, or event. They represent an emotional readiness to behave in a particular manner.

Our values, those beliefs, and preferences we feel are important serve as a foundation for our attitudes.

Attitude is often synonyms with self-esteem. People formulate a powerful first impression of our within fist 12-30 seconds.Judgement is happening from physical posture, appearance. Each of us lives our life according to a unique set of core values.


One of the most significant differences between high and low achievers is choice of attitude. People who go through life with a positive attitude are more likely to achieve their personal and professional goals. People who filter their daily experiences through a negative attitude find it difficult to achieve contentment or satisfaction in any aspect of their lives.
Jack Welch, the former chairman and CEO of General Electric, believes that an organization needs people with “positive energy” and needs to get rid of those people who inject the workforce with “negative energy”—even if they are high performers.

Many organizations have discovered the link between workers’ attitudes and profitability. This discovery has led to major changes in the hiring process. Employers today are less likely to assume that applicants’ technical abilities are the best indicators of their future performance. They have discovered that the lack of technical skills is not the primary reason why most new hires fail to meet expectations.

It is their lack of interpersonal skills that counts. Happy employees are productive employees
People who are self-motivated are inclined to set their own goals and monitor their own progress toward those goals. Their
attitude is
“I am responsible for this job.” They do not need a supervisor hovering around them making sure they are on task and accomplishing what they are supposed to be doing.

Many find ways to administer their own rewards after they achieve their goals. Employers often retain and promote those employees who take the initiative to make their own decisions, find better ways of doing their jobs, read professional publications to learn new things, and monitor the media for advances in technology.
Optimistic thoughts give rise to positive attitudes and effective interpersonal relationships. When you are an optimist, your coworkers, managers, and—perhaps most important—your customers feel your energy and vitality and tend to mirror your behavior

If you feel the need to become a more optimistic person, you can spend more time visualizing yourself succeeding.
Monitor your self-talk and discover whether or not you are focusing on the negative aspects of the problems and disappointments in your life, or if you are looking at them as learning experiences that will eventually lead you toward your personal and professional goals. Try to avoid having too much contact with pessimists, and refuse to be drawn into a group of negative thinkers who see only problems, not solutions. Attitudes can be contagious.

An attitude is nothing more than a personal thought process. We cannot control the thinking that takes place in someone else’s mind, but we can sometimes influence it. And sometimes we can’t do that either, so we have to set certain rules of behavior. Some organizations have come to the conclusion that behavior that offends or threatens others must stop.

When employees have positive attitudes, job performance and productivity are likely to improve You are constantly placed in new situations with people from different backgrounds and cultures. Each time you go to a new school, take a new job, get a promotion, or move to a different neighborhood, you may need to alter your attitudes to cope effectively with the change when events, such as a layoff, are beyond your control, you can accept this fact and move on. It is often said that life is 10 percent what happens to you and 90 percent how you react to it.
Most companies realize that an employee’s attitude and performance cannot be separated. When employees have negative attitudes about their work, their job performance and productivity suffer.

Excellent work + Poor Attitude = Poor Productivity

Excellent IQ+ Excellent Work + Poor Attitude = Poor Productivity

When employees work with right mindset output increase.

“Excellence is not a skill. It is an attitude. “
