Joining me as my guest for episode #189 is Rich Sheridan, CEO and Chief Storyteller at Menlo Innovations, a software development company in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Rich is author of the new book that I’m really enjoying: Joy, Inc.: How We Built a Workplace People Love. Learn more about the author and the book at www.menloinnovations.com/joyinc. You can also download a free chapter here. There’s so much to love about his book and what they are doing at Menlo. I think it’s great to start a new year, 2014, with a look at a book that gives us hope about creating workplaces where employees are fully engaged and everybody wins – customers, company, and employees. I’ll have a chance to visit Menlo in about two weeks when I’ll be in Michigan for my public Kaizen workshop, so I’ll report back on what I see during that visit.
