Career leadership 201:

  • Put contribution ahead of pay
  • Love what you do
  • Live within your means
  • Continuously improve
  • Have fun
  • .think .differently
  • Lean into discomfort
  • Envision a future that’s not only better than now, but much better
  • Develop others
  • It is definitely about who you know – get to know a lot of people and the right people

The list goes on, which is why the next blog about personal organization is critical.

7 tips for your first TED Talk

Disney characters at Glacier National Park
Still having photo upload issues. Rob will be here this morning and hopefully we can resolve it.

Summary:

1. Tell something new

2. Evoke contagious emotions

3. Tell a story (be personal)

4. Don’t lose the audience (jargon, etc)

5. Start strong (viewers are easily distracted)

6. Think globally (does your view make sense globally)

7. Practice (a lot)

My TEDx AUK Talk is a powerful and paradoxical catalyst to entirely (and easily) change the way we serve others.

Five storytelling tips here.

Everything speaks is a phrase we teach at Disney Institute, although we didn’t coin it.

For example: “Small details that are often ‘undermanaged’ or ignored ‘chip away’ at the customer experience.”
