Business With Style Episode 15: The dangers of a “No negativity allowed here” culture

It occurs to me that positive thinking, if not balanced with a good dose of critical thinking, risk assessment and thoughtful disagreement, can do more harm than good.

In a time when the multi billion dollar self-help industry promotes heavily the idea that negativity is the root of all evil, I believe that this oversimplified message can mislead many people who may end up confusing prudence, risk assessment and disagreement (albeit based on evidence) with negativity.
