PNSQC Webinar with Rich Sheridan
The Vision to Create Joy in our Work
How An Escapee from Corporate America Founded a Business Based on Joy
How many serious business plans do you suppose have been written around the themes of joy, happiness, and fulfillment rather than growth and profitability? At least one has been, by business founder/author Rich Sheridan, the guest on our August 16 webinar, hosted by Phil Lew. Sheridan’s popular nonfiction book, Joy Inc. – How We Built a Workplace People Love, describes his journey from disillusioned, burnt-out techie to the founder of a company where people love to work. He did it, he told Forbes in 2014, to save himself from a career of drudgery.
“Many would look at what I’ve done and say I took a big risk. I look at it just the opposite. What was at risk for me was myself – so I was not running toward risk. I was running away from risk. Once you’ve made that decision in your head that the risk of staying the same is far greater than the risk of change – you’ll start racing towards change. And that’s really where I found myself,” he said.
Join us August 16, 2017, at 10 AM PDT (1 PM EDT) as Rich will explore the beliefs, the actions and the habits that are supported by the underlying values that are driven by the vision to create joy in the world with the work of our hearts, our hands, and our minds. It will touch on the compelling content of “Joy, Inc. – How We Built a Workplace People Love” with a focus on the leadership lessons of his upcoming second book.
