In this episode, we are joined by Mohammad Anwar, the President and CEO of Softway. He’s authored a Wall Street Journal best-selling book called Love as a Business Strategy, and he’s going to talk to us about how to implement this transformational idea all around building a culture of resilience, belonging and success.
Listeners will leave this episode feeling hopeful and ready to at least begin thinking about making some changes in their business and culture after listening to Mohammad.
1. Culture is nothing but a culmination of how we treat one another.
Culture isn’t about perks, benefits, values, and vision statements. It’s how we experience each other. It’s not rebranding or changing the benefits package, but it’s simply those little interactions that make culture.
2. Changing culture starts with individual self awareness.
People can see through inauthenticity, so you have to be authentic and honest when attempting to become more self aware. And you can accomplish that through introspection, looking within, and gathering feedback from people around you to validate or invalidate how people are experiencing you.
3. Small acts make a big difference.
Simply saying “good morning,” taking more opportunities to just smile, or sending a thank you note. You don’t have to make a big announcement that you’re changing the way you operate. Just start with those small daily interactions and people will begin to experience you differently.
