Hi, I’m Josh.

I help leaders and entrepreneurs create astonishingly great places to work.

I’m an author, speaker, and CEO.

I’m a thought leader, speaker, practitioner, and entrepreneur. I own multiple companies that all exist to completely transform the way we work from life-sucking to life-giving.

I write and speak about the changing world of business, helping leaders and entrepreneurs understand the future of work and how to leverage trends and company culture to make their organizations more effective. I also serve as an advisor to select technology startups who want to make the way we work more human and meaningful.

I’m a work revolutionary, an agent of change, a catalyst, a firestarter. I’m generally obsessed with figuring out how the world works: what drives people, systems, and cultures. I am endlessly fascinated by brilliant ideas, cultural movements, and technology.

I am convinced that the economic landscape of organizations is going to experience a tectonic upheaval (i.e. BIG change) over the next few years, and I strongly believe we can help “push” these changes in a positive direction. I hope you’ll consider joining the movement.
