Even the best of corporate cultures have a bad moment from time to time. Any employee can have a bad day and react harshly or harmfully to their coworkers. With true teamwork team members tend to work well together but that does not insulate them from bad days. What it does is equip them to detect the bad day of another team member and react positively to it.

Unlike the typical workplace reaction of resentment or retaliation toward the person having the bad day the team turns around the bad day. This will involve some sort of positive act or comment that will become a memorable moment.

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take,” said comic George Carlin, “But by the moments that take our breath away.”

Image being at work and having a bad day when a team member unexpectedly invites you to join them for break or surprises you with an empathetic email or card. These become moments that will last for a long time but, more importantly, may be the positive thing that turns the day around.
