Tom Muha, writing for, highlights some of Kim Cameron’s work in an article about building positive workplaces:

“In Positive Leadership: Strategies for Extraordinary Performance, Dr. Kim Cameron offers four strategies for creating a positive work environment. His research at the University of Michigan has shown that the top performing organizations are characterized by four qualities: positive climates, positive relationships, positive communication and positive meaning. When all four elements are present, employees are able to ‘achieve their highest potential, flourish at work, experience elevating energy, and achieve levels of effectiveness difficult to attain otherwise.'”

Muha goes on to offer ways of fostering better relationships, stronger communication, and higher meaning.
