Hear It from Them

Inspire you to think differently

New ideas or philosophies aren’t worth a whole lot until they’re successfully put into action. By integrating his thoughts on the intentionally joyful workplace at his own company, Richard Sheridan has developed a model that business leaders would be wise to follow. So many people can identify with the stress and frustration that Rich felt in the first half of his career. But as he speaks about bringing joy to the work environment, you won’t be able to help but feel how his attitude and approach can transform your team or even your entire company. Rich’s stories about pairing, hiring and even promoting employees will inspire you to think differently about your operation and your potential for creating a positive space that smart, talented people flock to."

Rich’s core message about culture transcends industries because it’s about focusing on what brings energy, fulfillment, and effectiveness to people. Rich had our whole audience engaged and feverishly taking notes. Rich’s genuine and down-to-earth personality, paired with replicable but thought-provoking ideas, really resonated with attendees."

Constant "intentional" design

I listened to Rich tell a story about how we as human beings should try to bring joy to our workplace. This is fundamental to achieve any greater business outcome. He explains the true meaning of the "business value of joy" through the Menlo story..."

Re-energize your team

Rich was just what we needed to kick off the school year for Pontiac Schools. Rich was able to help us connect his story of Menlo labs with our rebirth in Pontiac. Much like Rich and Menlo, we “run the experiment” to provide the best opportunities for our students and staff. If you are looking for some Joy in your work or that spark to re-energize your team, invite Rich to your next organizational meeting."

Creating strong organizational culture

Rich’s inspirational presentation highlighted the key ingredients for bringing out the best in people and creating strong organizational culture. Leaders who use storytelling and focus on purpose, transparency, and humility, and who show gratitude and optimism, will inevitably create a loyal and productive following.
