What’s the number one metric we should be measuring but can’t?


Culture is what people think and do without thinking.

And what we accept by default becomes the standard.

This ought to scare the heck out of you if you’re in charge of culture.

How do we measure culture?

Experience your product for yourself and use your best judgement.

Many things to measure as a leader to influence prioritized decision making.

Some things we measure will never matter.

And some things we can’t measure may be the only things that matter.

Good luck leaders.

Going from managing things to leading people


The paradox of measurement and significance:

Many of the things you can count, don’t count. Many of the things you can’t count really count. – Einstein

jungle jeff’s Top Ten List

jungle jeff’s top ten list:

Today, my personal Leadership recipe:

  1. Vision – number one, it must be compelling, and impossible
  2. Passion – passion is unlike yeast, we need a ton of passion
  3. Communicationmore is better; daily
  4. Confidence – people love someone who believes “all the way”
  5. Structure – how great work gets done effectively, and quickly
  6. Teamworktogether, everyone achieves more
  7. Innovation –  fancy word for creativity; implementing creative ideas
  8. Measurement – you can’t improve what you don’t measure
  9. Results – this is why we are in business
  10. Fun – do what you love

Mix with courage, or, an indomitable will, and you have the opportunity to achieve what others say can’t be done.

Carpe diem, jungle jeff  🙂
