Be the first?

The Many Glacier Valley. George Grinnell is reputed to be the first white man to visit what is now called Grinnell Glacier.

Be the first?

What does this mean?

You can define it any way you want.

Does it matter to be the first?

Lots of research touting the benefits of being first to market. You’re probably familiar.

Not as much chatter about becoming a category.

Life is about choices.

Choices birth consequences and/or opportunities. Opportunities birth a price that must be paid.

The price to be paid then leads us back to the beginning of the cycle – a choice must be made – to pay or walk away.

What is your attitude about excellence?

Three common sense leadership tactics to use with underperforming employees.

What is your attitude about excellence?

As a leader, everything is your fault. Great leaders accept responsibility. Then they collaborate with their team to fix things.

And when things are amazing, great leaders shun the spotlight.

An article on Walt Disney’s thoughts on courage and leadership is here.

Son, become a student of leadership. Start with personal leadership. Start with these blogs. Balance is not a myth. Mind, body, spirit, work, home.

Improve one, the other four benefit. Neglect one, the other four suffer. Now do the math on improving two. Now the math on neglecting two.

i can’t make it simpler than this.

You are so far ahead of most 18 year olds. Do not shy from this advantage. And take on additional responsibility for helping your classmates who are willing to listen. To teach is to learn twice.

To excellence and beyond

“To excellence and beyond.”

The goal of great leadership is to inspire every employee to deliver excellence all the time, every time. And to do so willingly and exceptionally.

Huddle up

Disney Institute trainers
My final Super Bowl engagement was Super Bowl 48 in New York/New Jersey. This is part of our team rehearsing (and having some fun).

Yesterday while prepping for a speech and searching for an older photo to use, i stumbled upon lots of Disney Institute photos.

The distraction was fun, of course.

The speech is a month away and there’s no ticking-clock pressure to stay focused.

Worth mentioning too that this speech preparation is a more concentrated effort to increase the use of photos and to have fewer slides with words. Additionally, any slide with words is being reevaluated to pare it to three words or less.
