Podcast: Shawn Murphy on Workplace Climate

Jacket cover of The Optimistic Workplace by Shawn MurphyWorkplace culture is deeply embedded in every organization–perhaps too deeply embedded, if you’re a manager trying to make a difference. Managers can, however, change workplace climate: the day-to-day environment in which their employees can thrive. Shawn Murphy sat down with the AMA Edgewise team to discuss his book, THE OPTIMISTIC WORKPLACE: Creating an Environment that Energizes Everyone, and how managers can take charge of their workplace.

A lot of people are talking about workplace culture right now. Shawn Murphy, author of The Optimistic Workplace, published by AMACOM, is talking about workplace climate. He defines it as what it actually feels like to work somewhere and, unlike culture, it’s much easier to influence for the better.
