About the Author
REX MILLER, the principal and thought leader for mindSHIFT, is widely recognized in the science of workplace innovation. He is winner of the 2009 CoreNet Global Innovator of the Year award. Rex helped create the mindSHIFT consortium of top executives from America’s largest construction and architecture companies and their unprecedented investigation into how the workplace can create—or undermine—culture shift. They discovered that space, engagement, and culture shift go hand in hand. But until Change Your Space, Change Your Culture, the space-culture connection has been a well-kept secret of major innovators like Google, Cummins Inc., and W.L. Gore. This book reveals how they do it.
