The key to making change that matters

All in means all in. Not being all in means exactly that, not all in. Obvious, challenging, and yet the key to it all.

What stifles making change that matters?

A busy schedule.

A lack of balance between the big categories.

Time and competing priorities create the illusion that organizational and personal vibrancy are impossible.

Balancing leaders, employees, customers, reputation, and improvement yields organizational vibrancy.

Balancing mind, body, spirit, work, and home facilitates personal vibrancy.

At the DNA level what makes change happen and last?

Commitment.

How well does your architecture serve you?

Just happened to notice a rocket launch a few minutes after it actually launched. Yesterday. Sitting at my desk.

Context: customer equals anyone that you serve, everyone in an organization serves others.

  1. Does your architecture help you deliver on what your customers want most?
  2. Does your architecture support your business strategy?
  3. Are workloads balanced among your leaders?
  4. Are employees getting the right amount of direction, not too much, not too little?
  5. Is there partnering and synergy across geographical and organizational boundaries?

i could go on, but these five define the point that there is much room for improvement.

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.

The true regret is waiting and doing nothing

Elton John died yesterday. We all die. We don’t all come alive.

The true regret is waiting and doing nothing.

Here’s to hoping Elton had no regrets.

Here’s to hoping we can feel the same when our time comes.

The secret to a great employee culture

How true could this really be?

Bold statement. What-chew-think?

 

After the Disney Employee Engagement Keynote speech, there was a video interview in a nearby Boardroom.

A question centering around what’s the secret to a great employee culture directed my answer in a unique way….

” Everyone knows the benefits of taking care of your personal health. Yet many of us struggle to be excellent at the basics for personal vibrancy. Organizational vibrancy – a great employee culture – is the same thing. We all know the benefits of doing the right things, the basics, and those who succeed are the ones who make the basics their top priority.”
