From federal pay freezes to tightening budgets and a shrinking workforce, federal employees and managers have had to deal with their fair share of changes the last few years. But what kind of toll has it taken on the workforce? Managers and employees alike tell Federal News Radio their morale has been affected drastically - and not in a good way. In our special report, "Managing Morale," we find out from feds just how bad the problem is; we speak with federal managers and leadership experts on what can be done to fix morale issues; and we hear straight from Congress what exactly lawmakers expect from the federal workforce during these difficult times.
Turning a negative work environment into a positive one

April 2, 2012 -- This week on For Your Benefit hosts Bob Leins and John Elliott welcome Nan Siemer of Breakers to the show.
Siemer founded the Breakers consulting firm to help people improve some of their key professional skills. Today's show focuses on finding the positive in a negative work environment.
- office morale;
- the causes of low morale;
- what you can do to "fix your office;"
- how to change the things you can and accept the things you cannot change.
In particular, Siemer encourages federal workers to ignore the political rhetoric about feds during the current election season.
"Remember: politicians — omigosh! — they're posturing right now," she says.
