Chip Conley interview
The Chip Conley interview takes us into the mind and spirit of the author of Peak: How Great Companies Get Their Mojo from Maslow.
Chip shares his thoughts on how Maslow's "Hierarchy of Needs" and his concept of self actualization has led to the realization of his own full potential.
In the Chip Conley interview, he talks with Dr. Frank and Dr. Fred talk about his work as a calling and not a job.
Dr. FredChip, on one of your websites you say, “I named my company ‘Joie de Vivre’ because I was looking for joy in my own life.” What had you say that? Why this business? And what is your background leading up to the current work you do?
Dr. FrankHow do you incorporate Maslow’s "Hierarchy of Needs” into the work you do as a consultant and as CEO of “Joie de Vivre?” You speak of “Peak Relationship Truths.” Would you give us an overview of what you’re referring to?
Dr. FredWhat’s your approach in putting the truths you distinguish into action? How are the companies you work with transformed?
Dr. FrankA common issue for midlifers is a re-orientation of their work from making money to giving back to society. They are starting to look at social entrepreneurship and conscious capitalism as areas to explore either in terms of starting this type of business or being employed by one. What advice would you give to this group, especially to those who think this domain is one where income doesn’t match a typical business?
Dr. FredOn your “Peak” website and in your book, you recommend lots of resources. If you had to live on a desert island, what two books would your bring with you for inspiration and motivation?
Dr. FrankChip, you share a story on your blog entitled, “Lose your job, find your life.” You begin by saying, “Abraham Maslow and Viktor Frankl both suggested that the person who loses their job is best-suited to find another means of keeping themselves active while in the process of seeking new employment …” I can identify with this story because I lost a job too. Tell us briefly about the story.
Dr. FredI mentioned at the start that you travelled to Bhutan last year to study its Gross National Happiness index. What did you learn from the trip that you eventually applied to your business and also your own personal development?
Dr. FrankChip, would you share with our listeners how they can find out more about your work.
