Meraki is a Greek word that means the soul, creativity, love, and essence of yourself put into something like work. Josh Schneider shares his expertise in workplace employee motivation and engagement by connecting to passion and strengths.

“I work with organizations and individuals to increase performance, energy, and happiness.”

– Josh Schneider

Josh’s latest book, 5 Days to Your Best Work Yet, lays out not only the benefits of personal and workplace performance but a simple, quick, and efficient set of steps to breakthroughs and to unleash potential.

“Our work should be fun, rewarding, fulfilling and when we show up and win every day we create this life that is more full.”

– Josh Schneider


In the trenches of a well-paid CPA firm, learning first-hand the hard cost of disengagement and how Millennials worked, Josh Schneider knew something had to change – so he did something about it. What he did was form a coaching company and work with organizations and individuals to increase performance, energy, and happiness. As the impact of disengagement rose, Josh wrote the book Generation NEXTLEVEL, which calls the next generation of leaders to play to their strengths and do work that matters.

To increase the impact of his work Josh founded The Millennial & Employee Engagement Institute to curate and develop research to help unlock people performance and consult businesses to transfer leadership to the next generation. From labor studies and engagement work with Sikorsky Aircraft, to working with the small business owner down the street Josh truly understands the future of the workforce and how to engage it.

He has been featured on Under30CEO and the CEOhour talking about business and people performance with strategies for reaching the next level. From the stage Josh brings a passion that is contagious, an energy that’s undeniable, and innovative ideas that work in today’s new business climate.
