More than 500 billion dollars are left on the table every year in the United States by companies with unhappy, unsatisfied, and unengaged employees. That’s half a trillion dollars...wasted...gone...vapor. And the simple truth is that this doesn’t have to happen. The answer costs nothing...not a dollar. The simple answer? Create an intentional company culture of joy, passion, respect, dignity, and trust. Any company that makes their employees the priority, and has a culture of appreciation and support, will dramatically increase productivity and revenues. According to the Harvard Business Review, companies with happy employees will have nearly 40% higher sales, 35% higher productivity, and a swing of over 60% in earnings growth than those who are not happy in their jobs. This book is the road map to creating that amazing, joyful, and profitable culture.
About the author
Dennis Ford is the Founder and President of Quantum Leap Productions, an innovative and wildly creative corporate messaging company. With over 25 years experience crafting unique corporate messages for live meetings, developing compelling training for sales and management, creating entertaining and wildly effective videos, and producing a myriad of original Team Building experiences for over 500,000 corporate employees and Senior Management, he realized there was a common denominator that every leader in every company talked about but, literally, not one addressed effectively.
So, after digging into the guts of many Fortune 100 and 500 companies, it became his quest to actually solve a problem that every company faces...how to conceive, create, implement, and nurture a truly positive, effective, and joyful corporate culture. And even more, how to create a truly profitable culture, one that contributes greatly to both productivity and bottom line revenues...at no cost to the company.
In his first career, Dennis spent nearly 14 years with CB Commercial (now CB Richard Ellis), the largest commercial real estate brokerage in the world. After seven years in sales, he became manager of the Phoenix, AZ office, leading it to #1 status among all CB Commercial offices nationwide five out of seven years. He was named Senior Vice President and was the #1 rated sales and negotiating trainer, company wide.

Any company that makes their employees the priority, and has a culture of appreciation and support, will dramatically increase productivity and revenues. It is a fact that happy engaged employees perform at a level often 40% higher than those who are not happy in their jobs.

With stories of amazing and successful cultures, and brutal examples of how corporate America all too often misses the culture mark, the audience will be laughing at, and stunned by, the state of corporate culture in America. In the end, Dennis offers a simple solution to the oft times dismal and unhappy state of American business culture. Corporate culture can be joyful and wildly profitable, and any company can make it happen.
