A Personal Note from Wendy:

Fueled by my desire to equip employees with tools to contribute to creating a workplace community they love, I set out to identify the specific employee behaviors that contribute to belonging. I assumed the behaviors were already identified and out there somewhere; I just needed to find them. When I couldn’t find them, I started my own research to identify them myself. This book contains the answers. I hope they spark ideas for you! ~ Wendy Gates Corbett
