This article looks at the value of positive culture that shapes business and improves profitability, and the negativity that is invading business. It argues that negativity pulls down the performance of the enterprise, and calls for changing business culture from negative to positive by giving priority to culture-building. It cites the observation of Jim Collins in his book "Good to Great," and the steps needed to turn a business culture from negative to positive.
