Social Climate Training Manual
By Judd Allen, Ph.D. with assistance from Gillian Pieper, M.Ed. and Tiffanie Winters

The Social Climate Training Manual supports efforts to create healthier and more productive cultural environments in organizations, groups, households and communities. Three social climate factors―a sense of community, a shared vision and a positive outlook―play important roles in individual and organizational wellbeing. Where these factors are abundant, it is easier for people to pursue wellness goals. The three climate factors have a large impact on life expectancy, resilience, recovery from illness and quality of life. Organizations with strong social climates function more effectively. Innovation, customer satisfaction and productivity are just some of the many benefits of a socially cohesive workforce. 

The Social Climate Training Manual discusses the following tools:

  • The Work Climate Survey and report which is used to assess the current social climate and to set goals for improving the sense of community, shared vision and positive outlook.
  • A customizable presentation on what social climate is, why it is important and what can be done to improve the climate.
  • The Social Climate StrengthsBuilder, a tool for examining current strengths and for developing strategies for change. The StrengthsBuilder draws upon a database of field-tested initiatives that have been useful in building trust, overcoming negativity and addressing other climate challenges.
  • The original groundbreaking social climate research, first published in the American Journal of Health Promotion, serves as a reference on the important role of social climate in culture change.
