Don’t make them ask

handwritten postcard
2014…one of my final days during a 32-year Disney career. Sent this to my boss (in 2014). He frequently received postcards from me, for years.

Never let your boss feel compelled, especially out of habit, to ask you, “How’d things go?”


What are you doing now that you weren’t six months ago?

How does it feel?

What caused the change?

What are the benefits?

What was missing previously?

Can you teach/inspire others similarly?

What will cause others to change?

What will be the benefits?

What is missing now?

Can they teach/inspire others similarly?

How far down the org chart can this travel?

What will happen if this goes all the way to the ‘bottom’?
