    Beat Discouragement

    How to Beat Discouragement at Work

    I’m sure you’ve seen it. Your typical happy employee comes into work with slumped shoulders and a forced smile on her face. You know instantly that something is wrong. The reasons why your typically stellar employee is feeling down today could be endless. Is it something from home or work? You may wonder, “How I can help this person?”

    Discouragement hits everyone from time to time. Although you can’t do much about what happens at home, you can take proactive steps to prevent discouragement at work.
