This week John and Michael have a great exchange with Chip Conley, President and CEO of Joie de Vivre Hospitality, and author of Peak: How Great Companies Get Their Mojo from Maslow.  This marks our first interview for Leadership Matters. A bit of witty repertoire between John and Chip makes this a memorable discussion….while reminding us that Maslow is not merely something appearing in the the first chapter of management textbooks.  By relying on Maslow, Chip reveals how he managed his company through difficult times, retained key employees, and created a world-class working environment that anyone would be proud to join.
