Joie de Vivre!

Chip Conley, the founder of Joie de Vivre hotels, joined us at our Staff Meeting this June, when we gathered 330 of our leaders from around the country, to share the incredible story of his company and insight from his book, PEAK, How Companies Get Their Mojo From Maslow. Chip said that, “PEAK will help you create peak experiences with those you work with, so that these flourishing relationships will help you sustain peak performance.” You know we love and can relate to that. You just must carve out some time to watch Chip’s presentation. You’ll be inspired and motivated to create and nurture your own PEAK experiences and to do all you can to create them for those around you.

Tell us about your PEAK experiences (by Sept. 16) by commenting on this post for a chance to win a copy of Chip’s book, PEAK.

Chip’s newest book, Emotional Equations, which focuses on simple truths for creating happiness and success, will be out in January, but you can pre-order it now. In fact, the CEO of another company we admire for their approach to business, Tony Hsieh from Zappos, had this to say about Chip’s new book. “Rarely has a CEO bared his soul in a book as Chip Conley has in Emotional Equations. This powerfully authentic story and the resulting emotional building blocks that define how we can understand our internal weather make for a compelling read and a valuable operating manual for life.” We can’t wait to read it!
