Joy Farming
Cultivating Joy to Excel at Business and Life
by Nico Human

In this engaging read, Nico Human, a trusted business advisor, shares what he has learnt from following the journeys of five of his clients. These inspirational CEOs are successful to cultivate joy for themselves, their teams and their families every day. He uses the metaphor of farming as experienced on his grandfather's farm in South Africa (preparing the soil, planting the seeds, pulling the weeds and harvesting the crop) to illustrate the process. The tools provided will help and the stories inspire leaders to become truly inspirational, teams to work effectively together in a culture of trust, and everyone to find joy in their business, family and personal lives.

“At MacKay CEO Forums we populate the world with inspiring leaders. Nico personifies this. Our leadership team recently chose him to lead us through team building. It was a profound experience, challenging, and growing together through vulnerability. I recommend him, and this joyful book of his, wholeheartedly! Read it, better yet, partner with him. You won’t be disappointed!” —Nancy MacKay, Founder CEO, MacKay CEO Forums. “Nico wears his joy on his sleeve. The lessons from his life stories and his practical tips to incorporate into your daily routine will make you and your team more inspiring and joy-filled leaders.” —Steve Foran, CSP, P.Eng., Author of Surviving to Thriving “Read this book! Nico brings the serious business of inspiring and developing teams to greatness together. He has brought our team the tools we needed to cultivate trust and inspire joyful results. I. Keep it handy—to be read over and over as needed!” —Natalie Meixner, President/CEO, Richmond Hospital Foundation “Straight A’s for Nico Human! Joy Farming has shifted my mindset from hoping for joy every now and then to taking new and consistent actions to achieve a bumper crop of joy in my life.” —Bill Cates, CSP, CPAE. Author of Radical Relevance
