Final 120 Days

If you are afraid to fail, you’ve failed

Minutes ago this came in from Cristina.

If you’re afraid to fail, you can’t be creative.

For the first time ever i created a Twitter hashtag as a repository for a Disney Keynote speech…#jeffnoelMadrid

Will it benefit the attendees after the speech?

We shall see.

Son, spending 82 days out of 115 Summer days in Glacier National Park this year may be a mistake (failure).

We shall see.

Dear Son

It’s a cycle worth embracing

Disney Keynote Speaker
Be uncertain, yet advance. Failing comes with anything new. Learn from it. Repeat.

 

We can bank on being uncertain about many things during our lifetime.

We must learn to live with this reality and find a million creative ways to solve for uncertainty.

For example, be okay with being uncertain, yet advance anyway.

We will often fail because we were uncertain.

Fail away.

Failing comes with anything new.

Embrace it.

Learn from it.

Repeat.

The main reason organizations get and stay stuck

Disney Management Keynote Speakers

The reason organizations fail at their primary purpose (which is to deliver shareholder value by surprising and delighting their customers and employees), is because they fail to embrace what truly motivates and inspires their people.

Employees aren’t encouraged and motivated by rewards or reprimands.

Employees aren’t inspired by upward mobility and performance review ratings.

Employees, at their core, want meaning in their lives. They want to feel like a part of something bigger than themselves. Something they can rise up to.

They want a true sense of connection.

If your goal isn’t impossible, you’re not reaching high enough.

And your people won’t reach high enough either.

What Are You Waiting For?

Want to be your own demise?

change quote
Is being uncomfortable an integral part of your comfort zone.

 

 

There is never a right time to do a difficult thing?

We believe what we want to believe.

This is dangerous.

May i submit the paradox?

There is always a right time to do a difficult thing.

Cultural rules apply to people in power before they are applied to those without power.

Working with CEO’s and Executive teams, this is literally the most challenging transformation.

Why?

Because executives are too busy to change.

He did something that crushed it all

Disney Cast Members
Tom (right) was our heir apparent for Bob Iger’s position (Disney CEO). The Board nixed it. Tom is no longer with Disney but he was at Disney yesterday, working.

 

Disney Grand Floridian Cast Members
Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa Cast Members. Rare to see two Walt Disney Legacy name tags this close together.

 

Disney Cast Members
me, Pete, and Jerry. Jerry and i go back almost three decades. Pete and i, about three minutes.

 

Disney Cast Members
Brett has a twin brother Brent. Brett and Brent are known among Grand Cast as “the Twins”. Have known them both for almost three decades. The Grand is a special Disney Family atmosphere.

 

He did something that crushed it all.

Whatever it was, it couldn’t outweigh all the good he did.

When the Disney Board speaks, people listen.

So Bob Iger extended his contract at CEO.

PS. Richard is 92 years young.
