A values-based organizational culture is always, literally without exception, going to outperform a latently-focused organization.

Humans want to be part of something bigger than themselves.

Failing to tap into that is the result of distracted, unfocused leadership – these leaders have created a culture by default that revolves around a constant sense of urgency…an urgency resulting from poorly executed priorities.

Leaders outspokenly focused on revenue, cost containment, and profit will never earn the commitment of those on their team who are not financially incentivized, which is the majority of all front-line employees.

Bound Galley – Not For Sale…

To be on the short list of trusted leaders beats being nothing but a hound dog.

But all i have to do is remember i too spent a lifetime at Disney.

What Do You Mean You Don't Know?

Be crystal clear and use simple, key, repeatable messages

Critical to being a great leader is to be crystal clear and use simple, key, repeatable messages.

The world is crazy and we are busy enough with everything we are supposed to pay attention to.

Therefore, make the most important things habit.

Engrained.

Automatic.

Habit.

Non-negotiable.

Something worth defending.

Dear Son

Patience and creativity are spiritual gifts

Steve Jobs unveiling iPhone in 2007
There are multiple breakthroughs in a first-time parent’s journey. Photo: screen capture of Steve Jobs unveiling the first iPhone in 2007.

 

Dear Lord, thank you for patience and creativity.

It sometimes takes several hours to get things back on track when our peaceful center has been turned upside down.

There is an art to parenting.

I’m in art school, and it feels like freshman year. Awkward sometimes.
