“I let that negativity spread to me like a cancer, and that’s what it is in your organizations,” says Becky Borthwick, Associate Circuit Judge at 31st Circuit, State of Missouri. Borthwick says early in her law career she worked for a firm with two very negative coworkers. Over time, Borthwick says she stopped being excited about her job and moved to a different firm where she took the lessons learned and used them to engender a positive environment of respect in her new workplace.
