Listen to the episode:

Every leader wants an incredible workplace culture. So, why does it seem to be lacking at so many companies? Honestly, because it’s a lot of effort! However, making your organization an incredible place might not always be easy, it is ALWAYS worth it as the payoffs are truly extraordinary.

For part two of his donothing Wisdom Series, Mat Ishbia is back to discuss his favorite tips and tricks on supporting a wonderful work culture, plus discover what benefits you can expect by helping your team truly love their job.

If you don’t know Mat, he’s the CEO and President of United Wholesale Mortgage (UWM), a former player on the Michigan State University basketball team, and the author of Running the Corporate Offense: Lessons in Effective Leadership from the Bench to the Board Room.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

CULTURE IS KING: WHY A DISCIPLINED CULTURE IS IMPORTANT

Does your company’s leadership follow the same culture guidelines as the rest of the team? Are all expectations regarding culture clear? Listen here to find out why every business needs a consistent, well-defined work environment.

 

WORK-LIFE BALANCE: THE FIRM FORTY

Mat expects his team to work hard while in the office. He also expects them to turn off for the weekend and enjoy everything else in their lives. Here’s how they make that happen at UWM.

 

ARE YOU AN ACCESSIBLE LEADER?

If, as a high-level leader, you only talk to other leaders at your level, you’ll never really know what’s going on with your organization. Here’s why chatting with more than the managers and VPs will offer you the best perspective of your business.

 

DO YOU RECOGNIZE YOUR TEAM MEMBERS ENOUGH?

Mat believes that regularly and genuinely recognizing your employees for a job well done is just as important—if not more important—than great compensation. Are you giving your team enough gratitude?

 

BE AN EFFECTIVE COACH FOR YOUR TEAM

Mat looks back to his time on the MSU basketball team and being coached by the legendary Tom Izzo for insights on incredible leadership. Everyone on his team had different coaching needs, and the same mentality goes into business.
