Episode 108: How Do You Make Software?

Meet the Expert: Richard Sheridan, CEO Menlo Innovations

Richard Sheridan

Menlo Innovations CEO Richard Sheridan became disillusioned in the middle of his career in the chaotic technology industry. He had an all-consuming thought: things can be better. Much better. He had to find a way. Why couldn’t a workplace be filled with camaraderie, human energy, creativity, and productivity?

Ultimately, Rich co-founded Menlo Innovations in 2001 to end human suffering in the workplace. Menlo’s unique approach to custom software creation is so surprisingly different that 3,000 people a year travel from around the world just to see how they do it.

Rich’s passion for creating joyful work environments led to his bestselling and widely celebrated book, Joy, Inc.: How We Built a Workplace People Love. His second book, Chief Joy Officer, continues to prove that a positive and engaging leadership style is actually good for business.
