Conley is the founder and CEO of Joie de Vivre (JdV), a hospitality company that has grown to become the second largest boutique hotel company in the United States. He transformed a 1950’s no-tell motel into the world-renowned Phoenix Hotel, a legendary rock n’ roll destination catering to the likes of David Bowie, Linda Ronstadt, and Nirvana. JdV expanded into a collection of more than 35 award-winning hotels, restaurants and spas with more than 3,000 employees.
Conley and his company’s time-tested techniques and transformational leadership practices have been features in the New York Times, Time, USA Today, Fortune, and The Wall Street Journal. He is also an international speaker for organizations that include TED, Pixar, and Google.
His interest in the relationship between psychology and business, and emotional intelligence, led to Conley’s penning PEAK: How Great Companies Get Their Mojo from Maslow, which is based upon noted psychologist Abraham Maslow’s iconic Hierarchy of Needs theory. His latest book, a New York Times best seller entitled Emotional Equations: Simple Truths for Creating Happiness + Success takes readers from emotional intelligence to emotional fluency, using math as a way to better understand and manage our emotions.
