Hey you, Mr Snake-oil salesman

OC Tanner
An executive forwarded me a link to an OC Tanner riff on culture. Screen shot of the video transcript.

 

 

Do you know what a snake-oil salesman means?

“This special blend of ingredients will cure what ails you.”

Their slick and polished messages prey on the victim’s fears and hopes.

The product is only as good as the vision the marketing people can create. OC Tanner has phenomenal marketing.

Shot an email reply back to the executive asking for her key insights from reading the article and watching the video.

My purpose, to open the discussion to refocus her on the fact i’m leading her in a way OC Tanner can’t compete with.

Ever.

Bold?

Absolutely.

Speed and clarity oppose each other

Apple 2017 Keynote iPhone X
Leadership comes with the opportunity to leave a legacy others will want to emulate and perpetuate.

 

Speed and clarity oppose each other.

Do you come up with epiphanies or unique viewpoints that lead to transformational change?

When you do have brilliant clarity, how often does it happen?

And does it typically happen while you race through your day?

But what if this tactic fails?

Work hard? But how hard and for how long?

What if it doesn’t work?

Then what?

Excuses

#Excuses

Nothing is easier in life than coming up with great reasons why something didn’t work out or why something will never work out.

Do you enjoy being pressured by others?

Balance Keynote speaker jeff noel
This blog is about our contribution to society (work).

 

Let us assume a fair amount of time (two weeks or more) has passed…

i hate pressing people for an answer.

i also dislike waiting.

But i’ll wait because patience is a virtue.

And disorganized people – overwhelmed by their demanding schedules and skewed priorities – can take forever to get back to you with a simple yes or no answer.

No means move on.

Yes means it’s time to roll up our sleeves.

There’s a huge difference.

But in the silence of not hearing anything, you live in an unproductive world.
