Blinding flash of the obvious

Mickey Mouse Hat smiley face on dinner table cloth. Selling is the transfer of enthusiasm.

It is challenging to admit, but certain parts of business don’t work the way you think they are supposed to work.

Most people or companies you hire don’t have one-tenth of the desire and motivation you have for your business.

The insight is simple: you most find a million ways to work around this little known fact of life.

Note: When i say little known, i mean harsh reality as an owner. This is where hiring right-fit talent for a purpose bigger than yourself becomes a blinding flash of the obvious.

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?

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.
