I recently had a great time interviewing Rich Sheridan, CEO and Chief Storyteller of Menlo Innovations based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Rich is the author of the wildly popular book Joy, Inc.
With Five Inc. magazine revenue growth awards, invites to the White House, speaking engagements around the nation, numerous articles and culture awards and so much interest the company is doing a tour a day of the Menlo Software Factory™. Something is going right and Rich shares with us that that is.
During this interview Rich talks about the role of storytelling in building a strong corporate culture that beats the competition. We chat about why this happens. I love Rich's story of the Viking helmets, along with his thoughts on corporate culture, and about storytelling being a critical part of his CEO duties. And the results for Menlo have been amazing.
Listen to this podcast or download it for later this weekend. There are solid tips here and our conversation was both fun and enlightening. Enjoy this gem.
