Taking everything i learned, did, and taught from a lifetime at Disney, i deconstructed it and then reconstructed it. Making it profoundly simple and simply profound.

Why?

Because simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

Simplicity also facilitates efficiency and effectiveness.

The less effort, the faster and more powerful you will be.

So small

iPhone screen shot with CNN message…small world…it fits on the iPhone. Covid-19 is not the only wakeup call we can expect to receive.

Our world is small. Which is beautiful.

…and a smile means friendship to everyone.

Be the change you wish to receive.

A shared vision

performing a traceroute
Two nights ago, and an hour on the GoDaddy Tech support line, we did a Traceroute – IP Address related -and yesterday life in WordPress is back to normal. The web speed in WordPress felt like what a compound fracture must feel like in the wilderness.

A simple question, “What’s our vision?”, has the power to transform people, a department, an organization, an industry, the world.

What’s my vision with this Executive client?

A shared vision:

We work together to make our world a better place.

We work together in a rare, glorious, remarkable way that inspires great ideas and great people to do work that accomplishes great things, impossible things.

None of this will fly, however, if i want it more than you do.

The simple question is this, “Do you want it more than i do?”

Disney’s PATA to CAST

Disney acronyms
Disney hiring acronyms.

Reflected on my wife’s illustrious 35-year Disney career. After her first year, she then spent 34+ years in Disney Human Resources.

Ten consecutive years in Disney Casting. Casting is the outside world’s equivalent to an Employment/Hiring department.

She was the Casting Operations Area Manager when we opened the brand new Casting Center along Interstate 4 in 1989.

During the next two decades, the hourly Cast hiring interviewers used an acronym to ensure they consistently covered the same four non-negotiables with every applicant. At one point, the acronym changed – why it took so long is anyone’s guess. Note the content didn’t change, just the way we remember it.

Disney’s PATA to CAST

PATA:

  • Pay
  • Appearance
  • Transportation
  • Availability

CAST:

  • Compensation
  • Appearance
  • Scheduling
  • Transportation

Change what you see and what you see changes.
