An inspiring new take on workplace environment and crafting improved employee engagement
When it comes to work these days, we’re expected to do more with less—but is this nose-to-the-grindstone philosophy the best way to run a business? Alarmingly low employee engagement numbers indicate otherwise. So, if pushing everyone harder isn’t the path to productivity, what is?
Supported by the latest research, this eye-opening book argues that our best work is the product of a positive environment. That’s good news for you as a manager. While you can’t personally transform corporate culture, you can influence workplace climate and create meaningful and lasting change. Advocating a steward model of management, The Optimistic Workplace reveals how to
- explore personal and organizational purposes—and align them for astonishing results;
- overcome resistance and skepticism;
- build camaraderie and deepen loyalty;
- increase intrinsic motivation;
- help your team find meaning in their work;
- identify goals collaboratively and track progress; and more.
Examples from companies large and small demonstrate how this people-centric focus ignites employee potential, increases innovation, and catapults organizations to new levels of performance. Far from being a wish-upon-a-star discussion of workplace happiness, this book presents an array of surprisingly simple strategies as well as practical thirty-, sixty-, and ninety-day plans designed to focus your actions and make employee optimism not just a worthy goal—but a real and measurable result.
