Can We Have Joy at Work? with Richard Sheridan on VoiceAmerica's Business Channel

On Thursday, January 7th at 2 PM Pacific Time, Dr. Linda Sharkey will interview Menlo Innovations CEO & “Joy, Inc.” author, Richard Sheridan


Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/06/2016 -- From kid programmer in 1971 to Forbes cover story in 2003, Joy, Inc. author Richard Sheridan has never shied from challenges, opportunities nor the limelight. While his focus has always been around technology, his passion is actually process, teamwork and organizational design, with one inordinately popular goal: the Business Value of Joy!

With Six Inc. magazine revenue growth awards, invites to the White House, speaking engagements around the nation, numerous articles and culture awards and so much interest, they are doing a tour a day of the Menlo Software Factory™.

Most workers today would probably agree that there isn't much joy at work. In fact, employee engagement scores have been at their all-time low over the past 8 years or so according to Gallop and the Conference Board. So how has CEO Richard Sheridan been able to create such joy at Menlo Innovations? Even the delivery man notices the "vibe" when he comes into their offices and wonders "how can I get a job here?"

Join Dr. Sharkey in an interview with Rich Sheridan on Thursday, January 7th when they'll be discussing the "secret sauce of Menlo" and how he and his team have created such joy at work. It should prove to be an interesting, insightful and sometimes controversial conversation.

It is her unique perspective, years of experience and relationships with top leadership professionals worldwide that make Dr. Sharkey's show not only fascinating but also a valuable resource for leaders who are looking for the latest tips they can apply in their daily lives – both professionally and personally.

Dr. Sharkey is an internationally recognized expert on global leadership development and culture transformation. Her specific area of focus is using science and data to underpin her work and assuring alignment to business results and outcomes.
