Employees are customers too

Mr. Noel and Mr. Fredrickson, two days ago. Or as we say at Disney, Jeff and Carl. Employees are customers too.

Employees are customers too.

Easy to forget.

Might even be easy to never establish this organizational philosophy.

But if you do believe it, it can be insidiously easy to let it slip away.

Why?

Because the reality is employees are lucky to work for a great organization.

Conversely, great organizations are lucky to have great employees who want to work for them.

It absolutely works 100% both ways.

Neither should ever get complacent.

Lead like you mean it

More views from Grinnell Glacier trail.

Lead like you mean it.

When people ask what it was like to work at Disney (1982-2014), the response is always, “It depends on who your leader was.”

In the final decade serving at Disney, there was enough earned wisdom to thrive whether leadership was good, very good, or excellent.

Inexperience leads many to believe they have to accept their fate if they work for a good or very good leader instead of an excellent leader.

At Disney we say, good and very good aren’t good enough.

Learned to focus passion, art, energy, and purpose on being the best partner for our team, the best facilitator for our participants, and in doing those two exceptionally well, the business result (rebooking/recommending) took care of itself.

Emotion trumps everything

Disney Guests having fun
Consistently exceeding Guest (and Cast) expectations is the key to creating a deep, unbreakable emotional connection.

Disney has been named the most “intimate” brand among consumers in MBLM’s Brand Intimacy 2019 Study, moving up four spots from 2018. The annual study is a comprehensive ranking of brands based on emotion.

Earlier this year, The Walt Disney Company was named among the “World’s Most Admired Companies,” ranking No. 4 on Fortune’s annual survey of corporate reputation. Disney also recently earned high marks on Forbes’ list of the World’s Best Employers for 2018, placing fourth, and topped Forbes’ list of the World’s Best Regarded Companies for 2018.

Loyalty, Disney Style

As Keynote speaking tips are discovered, they get shared at junglejeff.net for you.

If you have any desire to speak or to become a better speaker, an example of eight sound speaking tips is here.

Did you know? A few years before retiring from Disney in 2014, there was a personal idea (and challenge) to begin omitting “i, me, my, mine” in all communications: email, text, written notes.

Why?

Subconsciously, most of us communicate selfishly.

Start taking a closer look at the messages you receive. Count the ratio between the sender’s “i, me, my, mine” versus the sender’s “you, your, our, us, and we”.

Almost to a fault, we are internally (personally) focused versus externally (the receiver) focused.

Count the “i’s, me’s, my’s and mine’s”(ommitting the ones in “parenthesis” to explain the concept). Do the same with “you, your, our, us, we”.

Totals (excluding the one in “parenthesis”):

i, me, my, mine = 0

you, your, our, us, we = 5

Downside to world-class organizational vibrancy

Apple Store Mall at Millenia
Apple Store Mall at Millenia yesterday minutes before opening at 11am.

The downside to world-class organizational vibrancy?

None.

There’s something about world-class organizational vibrancy that attracts and retains great (loyal) employees.

Same thing happens with customers.

World-class customer service vibrancy attracts and retains great (loyal) customers.
