Creating a Culture of Optimism

#TChat Preview: Creating A Culture Of Optimism

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, March 12, 2014. #TChat Radio starts at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT) and the convo continues on #TChat Twitter chat from 7-8 pm ET.

Last week, we discussed the need for some disruption in the HR profession and this week we’re looking at the importance of bringing the bright side to your office. While it’s not advised to gloss over the truth, being optimistic could positively affect the overall culture of the workplace. And we all know what happiness can do for productivity.

Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about creating an optimistic workplace with this week’s guest: Shawn Murphy, owner and principal consultant at Achieved Strategies.
