Joy can be so powerful at work — it’s a force multiplier that allows teams and companies to set ambitious goals and meet them without burning out.

A Referent Power Like No Other
Uncover the foundational leadership quality of joy, an unexpected leadership practice that is currently our most requested development topic.
Together we’ll learn why joy is so vital to our well-being, our cognitive functioning, and highly engaged performance —
and why we often hold ourselves back from joy at work.
Getting to the How
We not only inspire and engage your team through story, we give you tangible tools to put theory into practice.
In this workshop we’ll step through three ways to actively cultivate joy in teams:
A Pathway to Purpose that's Good for Us
Cultivating joy is an antidote to the uncertainty and weariness of the past few years and ultimately, an on-ramp to deeper meaning. We’ll also explore the science behind joy and why it’s pivotal to building a healthy mental immune system.
Being Responsible to Awe
Building a culture of awe
Finding meaning from the Stoics
Building Generous Connection
Exploring the concepts of Ubuntu and “collective effervescence”
Business leaders tend to think a great deal about success, but rarely about joy. Chances are, few are even aware of the joy gap in their organization and the resulting lack of interpersonal connection and team aspiration. That must change. Joy can pack as much practical punch as technology if we allow it to.
