Are you building a typical team& or a high-performance tribe? The motivational power of the desire to belong is the key element for ensuring employee satisfaction and retention, as well as your company’s long-term success.

With millions of exhausted employees “living for Friday,” the place we spend most of our time--our workplace--is drudgery.

But what happens when leaders revive the workplace by tapping into a hardwired human need? That need, a sense of belonging, can resuscitate employee satisfaction and retention, while also contributing to a company’s long-term success.

Employees want more than a job. They want an opportunity to solve essential problems and receive fair pay and benefits. While some companies use slick culture tricks to attract and retain employees, a more meaningful experience can be created by fostering a sense of belonging.

How can businesses achieve this?

In his new book Work Tribes, Shawn Murphy, CEO of WorqIQ and a sought-after leadership speaker, shows readers how to tap into the motivational pull of belonging. Based on findings from his interviews with leaders and employees at companies such as LinkedIn, The Container Store, Canlis Restaurant, and Barry-Wehmiller, Work Tribes reveals why a human-centered approach is more aligned with the way we work in the twenty-first century.

Astonishing outcomes result from making your employees feel welcomed, wanted, and valued--and this book will show you how to transform your team into a unified tribe.
