Jenn Lim Bio
Jenn Lim is the founder and bestselling author of Beyond Happiness and CEO of Delivering Happiness (DH), a company she and Tony Hsieh (the late CEO of Zappos.com) cofounded to create happier company cultures for a more profitable and sustainable approach to business. Delivering Happiness started as a book (New York Times and WSJ Bestseller, which sold one million copies worldwide) and evolved into a business consultancy and global movement that has impacted and inspired hundreds of companies and organizations worldwide. In her new bestselling book, Beyond Happiness: How Authentic Leaders Prioritize Purpose and People for Growth and Impact, Jenn draws on her decades of experience in culture and strategy to translate it into a practical "how-to" framework for more sustainable workplaces and modern organizational design. She guides all of us--no matter our title or role--how to live more meaningful lives through the work we do every day. Jenn's mission is both simple and profound: to teach businesses how to create workplaces--led with happiness and humanity--that generate more profit, sustain all people at every level of the organization, and share how we can make a greater impact by being true to our authentic selves.
