Signs of good morale:

  • Optimism
  • Realism
  • Cooperation and mutualaid
  • Hard work and sacrifices
  • Constructive criticism
  • Confidence in self and leaders

How is the morale is your team or organization?

  1. Do you sense that people in your company have hope?
  2. Is the language they use optimistic and hopeful, or pessimistic and despairing?
  3. Are people making plans for the future with themselves in the plans, or are they instead making plans to abandon ship?
  4. Do people have a lot of idle time, or are they working on ways to continually improve the organization and its performance?
