"I really believe that running is such a great way to challenge us and to add that difficulty to our life in a very controlled way so that we can deal with challenge and adversity. And I love that. I love getting to the crux of a workout. I go out hard in races and workouts because I want to suffer early on so I can find ways to get through it. And to me it’s always been a game—just this playful pursuit of seeing how badly I can hurt and then what tools I can learn to get through it…When I can handle these challenges in running continuously, then when something shows up in life, I feel like it’s a breeze to get through it."

Stewart Butterfield, the Co-Founder and CEO of Slack, was captivated by the early internet and co-founded both Slack and Flickr. In this conversation from the 2018 Wharton People Analytics Conference, Stewart and Mae McDonnell, an Assistant Professor of Management at The Wharton School, discuss his experiences leading Slack and building the next generation of enterprise software.
"90% of my job is to make sure that the organization is performing at the highest possible level."
New work is definitely about the people. It’s ‘people before paper’. But if you were to ask someone what communication tool truly represents new work, in almost all cases, people will say: Slack. We had the honour of meeting Stewart Butterfield, the founder and CEO of Slack. To put it in perspective, Slack is known as one of the fastest growing companies in history and one of the hottest startups of the time. With a valuation of over 5 billion US dollars, Slack is still growing with roughly 1000 people working within the organisation. Stewart deeply cares about the way they work at Slack and he shared with me very openly how his role as a leader has changed. Successful, yet humble. Innovative, yet down-to-earth, with a very fundamental understanding for what is important in life and work. It was definitely an interview that I enjoyed a lot, since we have many clients who use this tool and ask us for our input and advice. So for this episode, we went one step further - directly to the source: How Slack is used at Slack effectively and how they live and push ‘new work’ to new limits. And as Stewart hints throughout the discussion - it’…

People have a tendency to always be looking for the latest and greatest software to do their work with. They want something new, something shiny. And while tools are important and when possible you should try to use the best tool for the job, this quest to always find something better will not magically make you better at what you do.
Photoshop doesn’t make your ideas any better. Ulysses doesn’t make your writing magically more profound. OnmiFocus won’t make your more productive on its own. But we sometimes tell ourselves this is the case. We think we can get out of a slump by getting a new, cool app to work with. That may lead to a temporary surge, it’s only temporary.
Focus on what tools remove friction from your life. That is my main motivator for software and I’m trying to get better at optimizing for that over looking for the new and flashy stuff.
