Leading with Love as a Business Strategy with Jeff Ma and Frank Danna

Imagine working in a toxic workplace where you've recently laid off a third of your employees and the company is on the verge of bankruptcy. Then a few weeks later, that toxic leader pulls the rest of the leadership team into a conference room for a "all hands on deck" meeting, where he starts the meeting by stating that he loves this team and he cares about all of them. Sounds strange? Well, according to Jeff Ma and Frank Danna, co-authors of Love as a Business Strategy, they thought someone had swapped bodies with their CEO. But, it turns out that this CEO, and fellow co-author of the eventual book, found the motivation to change his behavior and transform himself, and the team, so that they led with love in how they worked with each other, and with their clients. It ultimately saved their business, and their relationships with each other. Jeff Ma stresses that they are still on the journey into this transformation and that it doesn't get easier, it actually gets harder. There has to be tough conversations where co-workers commit to the accountability that they have for one another. Honesty is stressed over harmony. And as Ma puts it, "it sucks sometimes to be honest." Otherwise you end up with what Frank Danna calls "unforgiveness." That situation where, because the issue is never addressed, it festers and causes a rift, and that unforgiveness grows and grows. So stressing honesty over harmony prevents this air of unforgiveness and leads to a better work environment. We discuss the six-pillars defined in the book: Inclusion Empathy Vulnerability Trust Empowerment Forgiveness Even in the law firm environment, Love as a Business Strategy has a place and can improve the overall performance and culture in the workplace.

SUMMARYIn this month's episode, I hosted a round table style interview with Mohammad Anwar and Jeff Ma, senior leaders at Softway Solutions a software tech company and co-authors of the bestselling book, Love as a Business Strategy. Mohammad and Jeff shared that after years of continued growth and success the company reached a point where their aggressive growth strategies failed them, and they began to lose clients and profits in an almost fatal downward spiral. After rethinking their business culture and hoping to reverse the downward trend, they were inspired upon Mohammad hearing a football coach who used love as a strategy to help support the whole team. Mohammad was astonished that the team embraced love in this way and began to make small changes to shift the culture at Softway to put love at the heart of the business.Listen in to discover Softway Solution's Platinum Rule and how empathy has been the necessary element to increased diversity and inclusion in their teams.*Timestamps are listed below links.LINKSLove as a Business Strategy websiteSoftway SolutionsLove as a Business Strategy podcastCulture+Mohammad Anwar on LinkedInMohammad Anwar on FacebookMohammad Anwar on InstagramJeffrey Ma on LinkedIn TIMESTAMPS[03:17] Mohammad explains the origins of Love as a Business Strategy[06:41] The culture of love[09:56] Jeffrey's story of joining Softway[12:41] Redefining what an expert is [13:47] The before and after of using love as a business strategy[18:23] The six pillars of love in the workplace [22:57] What is empathy in the workplace?[27:48] How empathy leads to greater diversity and inclusion[30:42] The Platinum Rule[33:12] What is empowerment and how does inclusion lead to empowered employees? [37:56] What's the ROI on using love as a business strategy? [41:37] Writing a book with four authors[47:27] What is Culture+?Support the show (https://paypal.me/sinogapsolutions?locale.x=en_US)

In the mid 1990s, a group of MIT students stunned casinos by winning extraordinary amounts of money playing Blackjack. These students, utilizing a data-driven card counting strategy, gained notoriety and became the subject of acclaimed books and films such as Bringing Down the House and 21. One of the team members, Jeff Ma, went on to become a 4x founder and an executive at Twitter before joining Microsoft as VP of Startups. Jeff joined hosts Scott and Andrei to describe his key learnings from building and exiting several successful companies. The conversation covers misconceptions around funding as an end goal, aligning perspectives between enterprises and startups, and the most exciting areas in tech.   Here are some quick takeaways:   Aligning perspectives to avoid friction should be the first consideration when entering a partnership When partnering with an enterprise, startup founders often underestimate the sheer scale that they are dealing with- fully utilizing their resources is not a trivial task The size of large enterprises can hinder rapid implementation of initiatives; however, it also makes accomplishments more rewarding Starting a company with the hope of being acquired is the wrong mindset

If you're listening to this episode at the time that it's being released, and you're thinking about work, you're probably thinking about returning to a physical office in this new land of the Delta variant, or perhaps you're looking for a job, or you're figuring out how to get a new job because you're done with the one that you have. Or maybe you don't want to talk or think about work at all. But the reality is - we all understand work dynamics and most of us cannot escape the reality that we do need to belong to a group that provides us with money to make a living.  So here's our question: what happens when you make a mistake at work?  What if we told you that there's another way to do business - one that focuses on love?  We were convinced that this might work after we spoke with our guests today - and read their book. Mohammed Anwar and Jeff Ma are executives at Softway, a company whose mission is to bring humanity back to the workplace. In their book, Love as a Business Strategy, they break down how this is possible. After you've heard what they have to say, here's what we'd like you to do: tell all your friends to listen (you knew that was coming!). Then buy their book from their website, and download the free resources too. Read it, and share it with your teams - both at work, and in other spheres. And then let us know what most resonated with you by emailing us at hello@dearwhitewomen.com.  Let's put humanity first at work and see where that gets us.   Have questions, comments, or concerns? Email us at hello@dearwhitewomen.com What to listen for: The major dysfunction in Softway's company culture that led them to make a shift The biggest resistance to the idea of love in the workplace What it takes for leadership to lead a massive shift in workplace culture How using love as a business strategy affected their relationships outside the workplace About our guests: Jeff Ma Jeff spent the first decade of his career working in the video game industry, from game testing to project management. He continues to bring his love for games into everything he does, from playing with his kids to training and coaching leaders. Jeff has a burning passion for board games, magic tricks, Agile, and growth mindsets. He was born and raised in Texas, where he and his beautiful wife, Maggie, dote heavily on their wonderful children, Cody and Penelope. Mohammad Anwar Mohammad is the youngest of five children and was born and raised in Saudi Arabia by Indian parents from Bengaluru. He graduated from the University of Houston (Go Coogs) with a BS in Computer Science and started Softway at twenty, where he still serves as the President and CEO. Mohammad lives in Sugar Land, Texas, with his amazing wife Yulia, a Russian diver and five-time Olympic medalist, and his beautiful children, Sufia and Moshin.
