Seriously.

 

Disney Keynote Speaker jeff noel
Not so seriously.

It was their idea, not ours.

 

Delivering a special keynote speech i’ve not delivered before.

Why?

An awesome client asked for something i didn’t have.

Initially, the answer to their request almost was no, but in taking a deep breath and asking myself “why not, and, what if”, i instead said, “Absolutely”.

The practice has been fun, inspiring, and enlightening.

The more i do it, the more i love it.

Lost count but it averages three times a day.

Practice like you mean it.

A discovery too…

i can speak the Disney Way about anything.

At Disney Institute for the 15 years i was there, we only spoke about our five core topics, two of which have since been discontinued (in 2013) as stand-alone products (Brand Loyalty…Creativity & Innovation).

Leadership comes with the opportunity to leave a legacy others will want to emulate and perpetuate.

 

Life would be easier if i didn’t work every morning, as in seven mornings a week.

Work is only work if you’d rather be doing something else.

Disney Loyalty Keynote 60 minutes vs 90 minutes

St Mary Lake
A few minutes and three miles away from the Bear sighting. Same Lake, but on the western end here.

 

Disney Loyalty Keynote 60 minutes vs 90 minutes.

Same content for either length…

Your Promise  •   Delivering Your Promise  •  Connecting Emotionally

Same high-energy, serious-focus, fun, interactive delivery.

What’s different then?

The extra 30 minutes adds even more interactive, engaging, thought-provoking activity, roughly seven additional minutes of experiential learning for each of the four world-class brand loyalty basics.

A long list, but is there a silver bullet for Leadership?

Quote about change
Action. Good, thoughtful and intentional action.

 

A long list that comes down to one powerful leadership thesis.

The criteria most use to describe why they admire a certain leader center on characteristics, traits, experience, talent, competencies, skills, expertise, and competencies.

But is there a leadership silver bullet that summarizes the whole volume for being a great leader?

It starts with an i, but it isn’t integrity.

It’s intentionality.

Great leaders over-focus on the same things other leaders under-focus on or ignore. It’s about being intentional where others are unintentional.

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.

 

Feedback on my speech from two months ago

Email from the Real Estate Company President…yesterday…

On another note, I wanted you to know that we did an anonymous survey of all of our attendees to our Leadership Conference in Orlando. Consistently, your session was ranked highest among the feedback we rec’d. Additionally, you were ranked as the favorite speaker (I was a close 6th…haha). I share this with you to know you are doing something right. Your approach to your audiences and their need for takeaways is working. Keep up the good work my friend.
