9780750683685: A Climate of Success

Could your organization be a better place to work? What effect would that have on the quality and quantity of what gets done?

This book examines the concept of organizational climate ('what it feels like to work here') in a readable and accessible way without sacrificing academic rigour. Using case studies to illustrate the causes and consequences of various climate factors, it makes practical suggestions for how improvements can be made - to everyone's benefit.

Building on current research, this book shows how perceptions of climate arise, the effects they can have on performance, and how managers can influence these perceptions and apply their understanding to improve their own and their people's effectiveness.

About the Author:

Dr Roderic Gray is a consultant, writer and management coach. His career involved a variety of practical, hands-on management roles before becoming an internal consultant in a major blue-chip company and running his own consulting practice, Kumpania Consulting. He has lectured on a range of postgraduate management and HR professional courses and published a number of articles on organizational climate, project management and product development topics. His book 'How People Work' was published by Pearson (FT Prentice Hall) in 2004.

Review:

"Too often the terms 'culture' and 'climate' are used interchangeably. This book makes the distinctions clear and demonstrates through academic study and practical case studies that improving the climate of an organisation will increase its success."
Helen Sweeney, Head of HR, Co-operative Financial Services

"Offering research for the theorist with case studies for the activist/pragmatist to understand the practicalities, this book could attract an extensive audience, especially first line managers who now want to understand best practices to use as part of their own development as they don't want to mimic bad practices used on them from old-style thinking. HR professionals would welcome this book."
Gillian Ince, Training & Resourcing Manager, Claire's Accessories UK
