This literature review examined how to overcome negative work environments. The review considered twelve popular books, and summarized key advice that most people can practically apply to their current situation of a negative working environment. The three main themes for overcoming a negative work environment revealed throughout the literature reviewed were: 1) accept ownership over the situation; 2) work to make the best of the current situation; and 3) take specific action to change the situation. This topic could be further researched as a case study throughout organizations to determine additional causes of negative work environments, and to determine additional advice for individuals and organizations on how to overcome negative work environments.
