Why is it important to be reminded or enlightened?

Back in the day, we hadn’t yet added the word please. Why? Excellence is a journey, it doesn’t fall from the sky.

Why is it important to be reminded or enlightened?

A positive catalyst is always helpful. Sometimes a negative catalyst proves equally as effective.

In prepping for a keynote yesterday, i am inspired to create questions regarding the speech’s leadership business insights.

Why?

To illustrate, with the audience’s words, not mine, how critical (and how simple) it is to apply the insights versus simply being familiar with the concepts.

Possible questions:

  • Why does knowing this matter? What grade do you earn daily, weekly, monthly on your delivery?
  • What, if anything, do you gain from this photo? (Photo is a Disney trash can inscribed with, “Trash Please”)
  • What do you do with the obvious fact that your behaviors drive how your employees treat your customers?
  • What do you do with the obvious fact that your employees’ behavior drives your customer’s brand loyalty?
  • What do you do with the fact that your customer’s loyalty drives long-term profit more than anything else you do?
  • Is it acceptable to downplay, and discount, common sense?
  • How do you feel about the second three-legged stool?

Small and intimate. The only available meeting room at the Orlando Ritz Carlton.
Disney Speaker jeff noel question
Great customer service question.

Who is jeff noel’s If Disney Ran Your Life podcast for?

Two types of people.

Dreamers.

Doers.

And without exception, the people who will benefit and appreciate If Disney Ran Your Life podcast are the type of people where the two types (dreamers and doers) are always found together, in the same body.

Two career truths and a lie

Orlando Airport is one of the coolest i’ve been in.

This is entirely indoors. In an airport no less. Not lying. Honestly.

 

Need an icebreaker for a group?

Two career truths and a lie.

The goal is to stump the others at their table, or in pairs.

Ask your audience to think of two of their biggest career or work accomplishments, milestones, or freakish encounters.

Perhaps they have patented a manufacturing process that has eliminated workforce injuries in an area where injuries were far too common.

Maybe they have a side-hustle as a comedian and have appeared on America’s Got Talent.

Then ask them to create an outrageous “lie” that competes with their two lifetime achievements.

The goal is to stump the others at their table, or their partner if they’re in pairs.

Never neglect the back rows if you can avoid it. Upper left corner, see the speaker?

Big rooms are harder to fill (and keep filled) with energy.

Audience participation up on stage is a great way to create energy in a room.

Animated body language generates energy.

 

From the Board room to the bathrooms and everywhere in between, the speaker’s methods and messages must resonate universally. When a client is paying a premium for a world-class engagement, it’s best to deliver world-class.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

 

Can public speaking make you a better leader?

Speaking in front of others is something every leader must do, and should do well. The better you become at public speaking, the better you become as a leader. It’s intuitive that this makes sense, right?

Today’s post is actually an entry on my “National Speakers Associationpage, so you’d be unlikely to read it without this convenient link:

The top ten list will save you time, because I’ve highlighted the best of the best. I composed the top ten list from memory – meaning, after three weeks, here are the key take-aways. They help me and they will most likely help you.

Great leaders know the value of being able to convey their vision, mission and brand. Great leaders create a compelling picture of the future. One that inspires passion and interest, and clearly communicates the organization’s values.

Make it a GREAT day, because if you don’t, who will? Carpe diem, jungle jeff 🙂
