by James D. Grady, Victoria M. Grady, Patrick McCreesh, and Ian Noakes

There is a common thread to all these questions. Workplace attachment or our instinctual (biological) response to attach to both tangible and intangible objects continuously throughout life.
Workplace Attachment: Managing Beneath the Surface provides the first comprehensive review of attachment in the workplace. We explore the biological and evolutionary roots of our attachments, explain how you can find attachment behavior in your workplace, and help you proactively understand attachment behavior with your team.
Our practical research, case studies, and story-telling will help you understand how attachment behavior impacts you, your employees, your peers and ultimately the culture of your organization. Once you understand how people attach, detach, and re-attach to objects and elements of your organization, you will be able to create real and lasting change.
