While listening to my podcast interview with Rich Sheridan, you will get an innovative perspective on people, culture and design from one of the top organizational leaders and business builders in the US today.

I am fascinated with people who have the enormous courage, heart, vulnerability it takes to actually do things differently (in Rich’s case, radically different). Whether you are a business IT leader employed by a company, or an entrepreneur. Rich and I cover equally cover the two, because he has had massive success with both.

This discussion is a master- class. I felt like he was speaking to me personally on how to think about my own company and my own teams. I trust his message will be equally ring true for you.

About Rich Sheridan

Rich Sheridan got started as a kid programmer in 1971. He is the author of Joy, Inc. He is a Michigan graduate BS Computer Science + MS Computer Engineering. He has never shied from challenges, opportunities nor the limelight. While his focus has always been around technology, his passion is actually process, teamwork and organizational design, with one inordinately popular goal: the Business Value of Joy! He is an avid reader and historian, and his software design and development team at Menlo Innovations didn't invent a new culture, but copied an old one ... Edison's Menlo Park New Jersey lab. Henry Ford's recreation of the Menlo Park Lab in Greenfield Village was a childhood inspiration!

Some call it agile, some call it lean … Rich and his team call it joyful. And it produces results, business and otherwise. Six Inc. magazine revenue growth awards, invites to the White House, speaking engagements around the nation, numerous articles and culture awards and so much interest they are doing a tour a day of the Menlo Software Factory™.

Major Take-Aways From This Episode:

  1. How to handle the chaos of software development with process and culture,
  2. The process of installing a culture of delight into your teams,
  3. His version of instilling accountability and service,
  4. The concept of team flow,
  5. One simple phrase to disarm every naysayer ever again.

I had a wonderful discussion with Steven Kotler. I don’t believe that you can talk about Exponential Tech, Leadership, and Enterprise IT Security without discussing Human Potential.

During this episode you will be a fly on the wall in exploring the Frontiers of Human Potential with one of the top leaders in this field.

By reading Steven’s books and engaging with the body of research around them, I have greatly expanded my capacity as an individual, father, businessman, and leader.

About Steven Kotler

Steven is a New York Times bestselling author, an award-winning journalist and the cofounder/director of research for the Flow Genome Project. He is one of the world’s leading experts on ultimate human performance.

His latest work, Bold was called a “visionary roadmap for change,” by president Bill Clinton and spent many weeks atop both the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists.

His previous book, The Rise of Superman, was one of the most talked about books in 2013 and the first book in history to land on national bestseller lists in the sports, science, and business categories simultaneously. In it, Steven decodes the science of flow, an optimal state of consciousness where we feel our best and perform our best.

Just as Rise explores the upper limits of individual possibility, his book, Abundance, explores the upper limits of societal possibility, breaking down four emerging forces that give humanity the potential to significantly raise global standards of living over the next 20 to 30 years. Abundance spent 10 weeks atop the New York Times bestseller list and appeared on four prestigious “Best Book of the Year” lists.

His writings have been translated into over 40 languages and appeared in over 80 publications, including The New York Times, Atlantic Monthly, Forbes, Wired and TIME.

Alongside his wife, author Joy Nicholson, Steven is the cofounder of Rancho de Chihuahua, a dog sanctuary in the mountains of Northern New Mexico.

Make sure to check out resources on redzonetech.net/podcast to Steven Kotler’s programs at Flow Genome Project, which I am currently taking, and the three books I have mentioned. You can also find the link to his twitter profile on this page.

Major Take-Aways From This Episode:

  • Science and neurobiology.
  • How to increase flow in your life.
  • Leading in times of exponential change.
  • Reducing the signal of noise to the brain.
  • Reducing the inner critic.
  • Developing lateral thinking,
  • Staying focused.
