    Event Description:
    Lead With Joy
    Fight Fear and Lift the Human Energy of Your Team
    Rich Sheridan, CEO and Chief Storyteller of Menlo Innovations, a software design and development firm in Ann Arbor, Michigan wanted to build a joyful company, one that produced far better results than he had experienced to that point of his career. He realized that the problems he faced were not technology challenges, rather very human ones, and ultimately they were challenges of leadership, including his own style of motivating with fear which he had learned so well from his own bosses.

    In this talk Rich will share what he has learned from nearly two decades of leading Menlo and from other great leaders he has met along the way. He will explore with you what it takes to lift the human energy of your team, define the values and purpose of your organization, avoid the weight of bureaucracy and meeting load, and lessen the drag of fear-based management systems.

    Rich co-founded Menlo Innovations in 2001. He brought a joy-filled message to the world with his first book, Joy Inc. - How We Built a Workplace People Love and now shares the path to joyful leadership with his second book Chief Joy Officer - How Great Leaders Elevate Human Energy and Eliminate Fear.

    Rich has spoken all over the world, from Paris to Singapore, from Tokyo to Iceland and all over the US. He leaves audiences inspired and encouraged to begin running experiments that move their teams towards joy and away from fear.
