"Diane Stegmeier's landmark findings on workplace behavior in the corporate setting will prove vital in determining workplace strategy over the next ten years." —Prentice Knight, CEO of CoreNet Global "The author takes a truly comprehensive approach to understanding the business barriers to the successful implementation of physical space design. The Critical Influence methodology identifies areas of resistance to change and addresses them, enabling the architectural and design firm to do what they do best—create the appropriate workplace solution." —from the Foreword by Greg Bendis "One of the most difficult aspects of facility management is the inability to link environmental improvements with measurable productivity results. Stegmeier’s observations in this area are based on hard facts and real research, not just abstract theories. Her work is an essential tool for any professional looking to justify facility improvements that can actually support and advance the mission of the organization." —Heidi Schwartz, Editor-in-Chief of Today's Facility Manager Magazine This definitive book on innovations in interior office design offers vital lessons on preventing workplace strategy failure for architects, interior designers, facility managers, and business leaders. It fully explains the author's research on the fifteen Critical Influences on behavior in the workplace, and introduces a practical approach to integrate an organization’s cultural, operational, and environmental elements fostering the desired behaviors to support the company’s business goals when designing an office. The book includes case studies of good design in contemporary interior offices illustrating collaborative workplaces that work.

The fastest, easiest way to shift culture toward engagement and productivity Change Your Space, Change Your Culture is a guide to transforming business by rethinking the workplace. Written by a team of trail-blazing leaders, this book reveals the secrets of companies that discovered the power of culture and space. This insightful guide reveals what companies lose by viewing office space as something to manage or minimize. With practical tips and implementation details, the book helps the reader see that the workspace is, in fact, a crucial driver of productivity and morale. Change Your Space, Change Your Culture was born out of recent studies that expose truly outrageous "Oh, my God" realities: More than 70 percent of the workforce either hates their job or they are just going through the motions. Half of all office space is wasted. Those shattering facts exist because office space is generally regarded as "overhead" or "sunk cost." Most buildings today clearly communicate the low priority placed on people-friendly design. Poor workforce engagement is baked into the culture. This book provides guidance on turning this around, by rethinking and reshaping space to align with the way people work. Specifically, this book moves from the high-altitude view down to the details on how to: Discover the fastest, easiest and most cost-effective way to shift culture Add square footage by using space more effectively Boost employee engagement and vitality by the creative use of space Learn how space can become a powerful productivity tool We all know that design, space, and flow have a powerful effect on the human psyche. Our homes, museums, sports arenas, places of worship, and even airport terminals reveal that. Environment can inspire dread or enthusiasm, distraction or focus, collaboration or isolation. That's why the office must be designed to inspire the desired culture and workflow – if it's not properly designed, no program, training or rules will be effective over time. Change Your Space, Change Your Culture is the practical guide to office space, the foundation of an engaging culture.

We simply have too much stuff in our lives. Burdened by our heavy consumerist culture to continually own and consume without purpose, we lose ourselves to debt, dissatisfaction, and despair. If having more, doing more, and being more does not allow us to live abundantly, what can? Minimalism can make all the difference. A minimalist life removes non-essentials and clutter—whether it’s physical clutter in your home or a cluttered mental state that holds you back from your goals— and makes space for only the most important things that truly add value and joy. Make Space offers you the tools to achieve this transformative mindset shift by marrying minimalist philosophy and principles with practical tips, activities, and action points that will unlock truly simple living.

And when you’ve finally removed all forms of clutter, you’ll invite all things good and extraordinary into your most intimate spaces.

The projects in each section are located across the globe.
