Everybody Matters Podcast: Shawn Murphy and Belonging in the Workplace

Our friend, Shawn Murphy, has written a new book about teams, team building and team performance: Work Tribes: The Surprising Secret to Breakthrough Performance, Astonishing Results and Keeping Teams Together.

Shawn interviewed a number of Barry-Wehmiller team members for the book, but he also talked to companies like LinkedIn, The Container Store and others. Shawn’s conclusion: people want more than a job, they want meaningful relationships, they want to belong.

In other words, everyone wants to know that who they are what what they do matter. That is important for every leader to remember and Shawn does a great job in exploring this idea in his book.

On this week’s Everybody Matters Podcast, Shawn talks about the book and the idea of helping your people feel like they belong.
