Build Joy

Arthur Blank, co-founder of The Home Depot and owner of the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons, offers a moving manifesto about bringing and sustaining joy in your organization and its community.

In this Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestseller, Home Depot co-founder Arthur Blank shares, in detail, how his core values anchor his business practices. Blank – who built a stadium, created a new professional soccer team and purchased the Atlanta Falcons NFL franchise, among other ventures – explains that business success emerges from treating your employees and consumers well, giving back to your community, and challenging the status quo. When you prioritize creating joy for people, he believes you reap extraordinary rewards – as do your employees, colleagues and shareholders. Blank offers these values as his corporate North Star.

As a company grows, it’s the solidity of those values that allows for innovation and agility in every other aspect.Arthur Blank

Blank’s book scored myriad positive reviews from CEOs, authors and leaders such as Deepak Chopra, civil rights activist Andrew Young and perhaps incongruously, former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning. In a coronation of the virtues of Blank’s approach, former President Jimmy Carter, America’s one-man exemplar of virtue, wrote the introduction to his book.
