Servant Leadership saved our company.
Our little story.
In 2016, amid massive layoffs and maxed out lines of credit, Softway almost closed for good. And our leadership team was to blame. Faulty and greed-focused objectives clouded our judgement and ability to create a healthy place of work. A command and control "top down" model reigned supreme. Softway had "company values" but they were just words on a page—nice to look at, rarely put into action.
With money quickly running out, our CEO knew he had to do something drastic to save the company. He started with himself. He began to practice Servant Leadership to see if a new way of leading could make a difference. It started small—sharing half his lunch with employees, writing handwritten notes of thanks, and staying late with teams to support them where he could. In the months and years that followed, our products and services improved, morale increased—and revenue came flooding back.
This ebook outlines the same path our CEO walked down to become a servant leader—a path he still walks to this day. Are you ready to take the next step in your leadership journey?
