Businesses love too.

By Sarah McVanel

 

The theme for this month’s One Tribe Magazine is love. You see our One Tribe Magazine publisher lost a very important person that he loves very, very dearly in this life. He put a request out there, how many of his authors would choose to take the call to write an article about love. And because we love him, many of us did.

I must admit though, I don’t usually write about love. I don’t do speeches about it and or coach people about love. I work with organizations, associations and entrepreneurs. And sure, my clients and their teams do loving things, but it’s a bit of a taboo concept.

Or is it?

You see, just this past week, I landed an amazing new client. One of those clients that you are so excited to work with because they just “get it”. Why do they get it? Because they have huge love for other people and their customers. When they say one of their core values is integrity, they are about integrity down to the core and in the most loving way. Not because it makes them more money or brings them more fame. In fact, I’ve encouraged the owner to share his successes in how he’s created a respectful, healthy and loving culture and how his people first culture has also resulted in huge growth, customer loyalty and a lineup of employees wanting to work for them. But he’s not interested, because that’s not what creating this culture is all about. In fact, it’s only partly about the numbers. He wants his staff to feel as enriched, fulfilled in life, and as happy in their lives as he feels in his. This focus happens to have led to great business results (but then again, as a reader of this magazine, you knew it would). Now, if doing something for other people, just because you can and you want to see them make their lives better isn’t the definition of love in a business environment, I don’t know what is. 

How can you bring more love into your workplace? Let’s take a lesson from my client. 

1.  Come together and dream 

Every month they gather together and they talk about their dreams. Everyone is invited to voluntarily participate in The Dream Initiative, listing 50 dreams that they have. If they’re looking for inspiration, they can read The Dream Manager by Matthew Kelly. He takes the time, as the owner of this company, to meet with every employee, to understand their dreams, and how he can make it happen. 

2. Recognize each other

The leadership team sees their staff, and peers see each other, not just for what they contribute professionally, but also for who they are as people. We know from research that any time somebody feels recognized and valued, not just what they produce but for their strengths, talents and passions, they feel understood and a part of something bigger than themselves. 

3. Take time out to connect

There are physical spaces in this business where people can sit together, whether it is to have a coffee, a conversation, or have less formal meetings. There’s even enough room in the space during breaks if you check on social media that you could also be having a conversation at the same time. 

Even the art and word clouds on the walls echo caring, love, support and inclusivity.

It’s very independent work that this company engages in, and yet there is so much opportunity for coming together on a regular basis to support, reflect and connect.

I’m curious, how do you see love show up in organizations? How do you contribute to a sense of loving community? What else could we be doing to make each other’s lives better through love?
