NEW YORK, Jan. 26, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FMW Media Works Corp's "New to The Street Leadership" show, powered by Sector SPDR ETFs, airs on Bloomberg TV as sponsored programming on Saturday, January 27, 2024, at 6:30 PM ET.

Executive Coach, Media Personality, and Author Matt Doherty and business TV Host Jane King, who co-hosts the show, welcome three (3) business guests who share their extraordinary leadership experiences:

1). David J. Friedman, CEO/Founder of High Performing Culture, LLC, CultureWise®, and Author: "Fundamentally Different" and "Culture by Design."
2). Scooter Brown and Donnie Reis of War Hippies, a country music duo.

David J. Friedman is the CEO/Founder of High Performing Culture, LLC. (HPC), CultureWise®, and Author: "Fundamentally Different" and "Culture by Design," is with New to The Street Leadership's TV Host Matt Doherty in-studio at the Nasdaq MarketSite Studio. As a former CEO of a company that received seven "Best Places to Work" awards, an author, keynote speaker, consultant, and CEO/Founder of High Performing Culture, LLC., David talks about organizational culture, making it simple, practical, and actionable. Many years ago, David and his family started a very successful employee benefits company, and he realized earlier on that his family had the same business values and goals. When the Company grew, he quickly discovered that his newly hired employees needed to understand the established business goals, values, and culture. People think differently, but teaching employees how you want your business to run is vital to success. David realized he established a business culture environment, teaching practical business standards. His cultural input fostered a fantastic business reputation for excellent and effective customer service. He decided one day to take his employees on an off-site retreat event at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Philadelphia, PA. A hotel executive spoke at the event, describing Ritz-Carlton's successes. Each day, Ritz-Carlton's employees, managers, and executives work together from a list of twenty business behaviors. They talk and teach one another about a listed topic. The daily routine built a thriving business culture. David took inspiration from the event and developed his unique fundamentals for success, a weekly routine, like a ritual, where behavioral practices become installed in each employee. David believes that values and behaviors have different meanings. Values like loyalty, quality, and integrity are abstract. However, behaviors like honor, respect, commitment, blameless problem-solving, and rational expectations can garner employee positivity through actions and practices. Like a successful sports coach, practice brings perfection, and a business leader must do the same with their employees and practice good behavior. A business needs to operationalize its core values into positive behaviors. David believes any organization can achieve a positive culture through leadership that installs effective daily and weekly routines, bringing everyone together. David and his team at High Performing Culture created CultureWise®. This turnkey culture operation system institutes a cultural platform that many organizations and businesses in North America use successfully to develop productive and positive work culture environments. David has two books he wrote, "Fundamentally Different" and "Culture by Design." Matt Doherty informs viewers that "Culture by Design" is a must-read book for building a thriving and protective business culture. David Friedman's leadership abilities enabled him to develop successful business cultures, sharing those award-winning leadership experiences, skills, and successes.

From the Nasdaq MarketSite Studio, Scooter Brown and Donnie Reis, the country music duo of War Hippies talk with New to The Street Leadership's Co-hosts Matt Doherty and Jane King. Fans know them for authentic song lyrics, fantastic live shows, and a clothing lifestyle brand. Since the duo's self-titled debut album during their 2022 "The Can't Miss Tour," War Hippies appears as #8 iTunes - Country Music, #30 iTunes - Chart All Genres, and has millions of views on streaming platforms. War Hippies' fan base continues to grow. Scooter Brown and Donnie Reis are former U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Army combat veterans. The band's name came after Scooter had a 'People" magazine interview with a published headline "Self-Proclaimed War Hippie…." In 2020, Scooter met Donnie, both of whom had musical experiences, and decided to start the band. Military service and training gave them leadership skills to bring into their music careers and lives. Military disciplines help them prepare and handle events as a musical duo, successfully growing War Hippies. Each is a 50/50 partner in all business decisions, and they manage operations through effective communications. Scooter and Donnie are proud of creating a musical culture and atmosphere in which everyone is a part of the business. The band hires family members, managers, booking agents, cinematographers, and a drummer, all contributing to War Hippies' ongoing successes. Donnie says that the music industry is nothing like his military experience, which has regiments and chain of command. Relationships and performance outcomes are usually the driving business forces within the music industry. During military combat missions, the goal is to bring back everyone alive after a mission. Courage and training are a must for successful outcomes. In 2023, War Hippies performed at over 100 venues, played at rallies and received an endorsement from Harley Davidson Motorcycle. The duo looks to assist military families and fellow veterans and help children acquire musical instruments. War Hippies is a growing lifestyle brand with a clothing line, and they are looking into establishing coffee, beverages, and other product brands. Past military leadership experiences have helped Scooter and Donnie create a vibrant musical business culture in their songs and business operations. The duo will perform at many great venues throughout 2024; viewers can find concert dates and learn more about the band at, or scan the QR code during the show.
