Do not choke

Imagine what a 30-year Disney Operations insider knows about creativity and innovation. Priceless? Depends what you need to fix and improve.

World-class is highly desirable.

Of course, it is also expensive.

Investing time, money, and resources.

(It’s also expensive in lost opportunity costs, turnover, cultural weakness, ineffective leadership).

Not many naturally see world-class cultural architecture as an investment.

Some do.

Guess who they are.

The crazy ones. The misfits. The outliers. The ones who know there is no other choice.

So please do not choke when i give you the quote.

TEDx Talk in Kuwait

Disney TEDx Speaker
On average, overnight success takes about a decade.

TEDx Talk in Kuwait is being proposed for late April by my agent, Thinking Heads.

Here are some notes for the proposal:

Assumptions:

  • 12-16 minute speech
  • Clear, concise, and compelling idea
  • Universal application
  • Easy and immediate implementation
  • Inspiring

Thesis:

  • Personal and professional vibrancy is overwhelming because our goal is incorrect and going the extra mile to reach the goal is a flawed proposition

World Challenge:

  • To simplify and scale exceptional service for everyone we encounter, every day

World Solution:

  • Unveil the blinding flash of the obvious that aiming for satisfaction is dangerous
  • Revealing the paradox of going the extra mile by illustrating going the extra inch

Bonus: 

  • Issue a 72-hour challenge for the audience to implement the ridiculously easy solution of going the extra inch and to teach it to others

Ultimate outcome:

  • Make our world an exponentially happier and more vibrant place not only for the recipient but also for the giver

Emotion Trumps Everything

Is profit the reward or the goal?

Will senior management learn to cup possibility in their hands?

 

The senior management team met yesterday morning to present their compelling recommendations to their Board.

One of those recommendations is to hire me to help them:

  • Transform their culture
  • Move from good to great
  • Develop competitive immunity
  • Create a culture by design from a culture by default
  • Build something every employee wants to protect

At this point it is out of my hands, like an injured athlete with timing not in her favor, and so i wait.
