The moment you walk into Menlo Innovations, you can sense the atmosphere full of energy, playfulness, enthusiasm, and maybe even . . . joy. As a package-delivery person once remarked, “I don’t know what you do, but whatever it is, I want to work here.” Every year, thousands of visitors come from around the world to visit Menlo Innovations, a small software company in Ann Arbor, Michigan. They make the trek not to learn about technology but to witness a radically different approach to company culture. CEO and “Chief Storyteller” Rich Sheridan removed the fear and ambiguity that typically make a workplace miserable. His own experience in the software industry taught him that, for many, work was marked by long hours and mismanaged projects with low-quality results. There had to be a better way. With joy as the explicit goal, Sheridan and his team changed everything about how the company was run. They established a shared belief system that supports working in pairs and embraces making mistakes, all while fostering dignity for the team. The results blew away all expectations. Menlo has won numerous growth awards and was named an Inc. magazine “audacious small company.” It has tripled its physical office three times and produced products that dominate markets for its clients. Joy, Inc. offers an inside look at how Sheridan and Menlo created a joyful culture, and shows how any organization can follow their methods for a more passionate team and sustainable, profitable results. Sheridan also shows how to run smarter meetings and build cultural training into your hiring process. Joy, Inc. offers an inspirational blueprint for readers in any field who want a committed, energizing atmosphere at work—leading to sustainable business results.

This year's winner of the Thinkers50 Lifetime Achievement Award and the CEO Reads Lifetime Contribution to the Business Book Industry Award, Tom Peters is one of the world's most revered management gurus and global business thinkers. For decades, he has been preaching the gospel of putting people first, and in today's rapidly changing business environment, this message is more important than ever. Studies show that fewer than one-third of employees feel engaged with their work and that half of all jobs are at risk due to technology. But Peters has a solution: a sustained commitment to excellence combined with a commitment to people. These are, he argues, the only tools for coping with and thriving amidst the tsunami of change facing business today. In The Excellence Dividend, Peters shows that nothing beats a high-quality product or service, designed and delivered by people who are as dedicated to each other as they are to their shared goal. With his unparalleled expertise and inimitable charisma, Peters offers brilliantly simple, actionable guidelines for success that any business leader can immediately implement. After spending four decades in in pursuit of professional excellence, giving more than 3,000 presentations on the subject and working with companies around the world, Peters has delivered a contemporary personal excellence manual for any professional looking to make their mark and face today's business challenges.

Winner of The Shingo Research and Professional Publication Award! Everyone knows that in order to reach optimum levels of health, you have to exercise—and that you have to keep at it, day after day after day. No big secret here. It’s the same with process improvement, and, specifically, lean processes. Everything there is to know about Lean has been revealed. Countless books, articles, and seminars provide business leaders all the information they need to understand how lean works and how effective it can be when fully implemented. Again, not a secret. Why, then, do companies invariably fail in their pursuit of operational excellence? The same reason people fail to trim fat through exercise. They don’t do it. They try to squeeze it into their schedule; they don’t make it part of their schedule. And, inevitably, it becomes less of a priority. In the same vein, too many business leaders see process improvement as a project, something separate from the more “pressing” goals of profits and growth. That’s where they go wrong. And that’s where Building the Fit Organization comes in. In this practical, hands-on guide Markovitz walks you step by step through the process of making lean as intrinsic to your company as the pursuit of profits. You will learn how to make an unshakeable commitment to increasing the value provided by doing the right work in the right way with continuous monitoring of processes and structured coaching for everyone. You don’t need another book about lean. What you need to learn is how to make process improvement your company’s purpose. Like a serious athlete, you’re warmed up. You know what lean is and how it can help your organization. Now it’s time to perform. Building the Fit Organization is the next step to creating a company that can compete on the toughest of playing fields.

"You will live and not die, and bring healing and hope to the nations, and restore leaders or soon-to-be leaders." This inspirational word to Robert Choate enabled him, through trials of testing, to one day be sent to the nations. A poor welfare surfer boy from the streets of coastal California, it seemed impossible. He had no family, no money, no social status, no real education. He lived on the streets and had no hope. By God's transforming power, Robert Choate rose to the challenge and built an international ministry, marked by controversy, achievement, and setbacks. Today, he is recognized as an international spiritual healing figure, who has preached to, prayed for, and chauffeured government leaders, celebrities, authors, sports stars, corporate executives, newly weds, families attending baby dedications, street people, terminally ill patients, drug addicts, cult followers, suicidal people, the mentally ill, molestation and rape victims, the homeless, and young and old people. Through his ministry, Choate has helped to establish churches and ministries. He was a pioneer in the early days of Christian television and radio for set design, programming, scripting, and talent, to effectively communicate the Gospel. The charismatic and Pentecostal anointing was brought to a fresh creative level, highlighting over 1,000 people, worship groups and ministries to over eighty countries and 40 million viewers through Gospel Channel Europe worldwide. Spanning thirty years of ministry to the masses through Christ Comfort Ministries International, "City Talks" programs, publishing, worship music, and home meetings, Robert's steadfast spirit, with the help of friends and family, stands as a testimony and witness to what can happen to an outcast who obeys the call of God.
