From Twitter yesterday.

Anyone can teach.

Everyone can teach.

Were we all born to teach?

Running to something or from something?

florida pool owner
Did i mention there have been photo upload challenges since the website hosting platform migration recently? Of course i have. Optimistic for a resolution soon.

Regarding leaders (including our previous self) who are perceived with low integrity. You want to leave your company because of your negative perception of a leader?

Does quitting and moving on:

  • Does it change who you serve?
  • Does it change the way you serve them?
  • And does it make it harder to do those things?

Running away Leaving might be a sign of personal issues and blind spots.

Moving on just might be the most courageous decision of your entire career.

The challenge is this won’t become clear until later.

Son, my 2014 Disney departure (official retirement at 55) was six years in the making. It was the perfect move at the perfect time.

Leadership accountability challenges

Disney intersection east side
On our (Disney) Eastern border, we head North toward Magic Kingdom to go home.

Leadership accountability challenges are common.

Why?

Lack of clarity.

If i asked you and your boss to each grab a post-it note and privately write down your top three work priorities, would your list match your boss’s?

What if the two post-it note lists matched?

What’s to gain?

What if they don’t match?

What’s to lose?

Finally, do you have company-wide standard buckets of focus? For example, at Disney, we have Employee, Customer, and Business buckets. Everyone is crystal clear on this.

Additionally, we have a second level of company-wide leadership standard buckets: Technical, managerial, and behavioral accountabilities. How well do you perform your responsibilities? How well do you manage time, money, and resources? And how well do you demonstrate the desired leadership behaviors.

Your favorite leader and why?

This Golds Gym visitor’s t-shirt caught my eye a few days ago. Asked to photograph it. A different version could be an icon for my website.

 

Who’s your favorite leader and why?

Six benefits for listening to a Disney Leadership expert

  1. Align your leadership values with your vision
  2. Create a leadership culture by design
  3. Become the category rather than striving to be the best your category
  4. Consistent, long-term growth designed to clearly outdistance your competition
  5. Harness the staggering creative talent within your team
  6. Create a culture every employee believes is worth defending

Or, you could hire someone else. There is no shortage of leadership advice.
