Shola Richards on the Heart of a Healthy Workplace
Show Notes Chapter Markers

If you’ve worked any time at all, then you’ve worked in some place that was unhealthy. Maybe it was full of gossip and backstabbing. Or perhaps there was one disgruntled employee who just made the whole place miserable. Or perhaps you or one of your colleagues was bullied. Toxic workplaces take an emotional toll. They’re exhausting. Draining. Demoralizing.

What can we do as leaders to create a healthy workplace culture right from the very start? How do we turn around one that’s developed some sort of trouble spot? And how do we contribute to a healthier and happier workplace through our own attitude and resiliency? In “The Heart of a Healthy Workplace,” speaker, author, and workplace culture consultant Shola Richards talks to us about creating a healthy workplace environment.
