mindSHIFT for "Case4Space: How Engaging Workplaces Lead to Transformation and Growth."
Excerpted from the September/October 2015 issue of The LEADER magazine: In the spring of 2012, at the CoreNet Global North America Summit in San Diego, the association presented the results of its research study Corporate Real Estate 2020. When the session broke, conversation spilled out into the foyer.
One of the questions that came up in conversation was, Are we – personally, professionally, or corporately – equipped to face the relentless change and disruptions implied in the research? These questions continued to provoke the mindSHIFT team long after the Summit. Soon, 30 companies and more than 50 leaders (including Millennials) signed up to take part in an 18-month discovery process called Case4Space.
Finally, a clear picture emerged: When we create a process that is social and engaging the results produce an engaging workplace.
Case4Space completed our collective work in October of 2013. Wiley published it in September 2014 as Change Your Space, Change Your Culture: How Engaging Workplaces Lead to Transformation and Growth. Read more>>>
