If Disney Ran Your Life

Should high expectations come with the territory?

Disney Leadership Keynote Speaker
August 31, 2016.

 

How would i define my Mid Life Celebration values?

For example, personal responsibility.

  • Respond within 24 hours.
  • Ask. Don’t assume or wonder. Ask.
  • Treat others the same way you’d like.

Need to be ahead of the curve for future contracted partners.

Should high expectations come with the territory?

Don’t let high stakes alter your values

When the stakes are high, so are our emotions. Don’t let high stakes alter our values. No compromising, even if it looks like we might lose.

Lose with dignity.

Win with humility and gratitude.

Being Brave

Speak like you mean it, and be willing to walk away

Speakers Bureau Contract sample
There was a clause in the contract that over-rode this . Signed last night, Jan. 12, 2016.

 

Began 25 minutes behind schedule and ran over my time by one minute, a net loss of 24 minutes. Never complained. Saw it coming and adapted on the fly. This is what a professional speaker does.

Did the client or the audience have any idea?

Certainly not the audience.

Just another day of doing work that matters.

Coincidently, received an email from a different client with great news. The Speakers Bureau’s client agreed to remove their video taping request.

i was willing to walk away from a big contract, rather than compromise my values.
