Show and tell?

Disney keynote speaker Jeff Noel on stage with two audience members
You can talk the insight or you can show them the insight. Here i am showing the 400-person audience the insight about ‘displaying appropriate body language’. Invited two audience volunteers onstage to help.

Best, average, worst days

list of things that make up a typical day for an executive
A simple question: “Describe consistent elements during a typical workday.”
list of things that make up the best days for an executive
“Describe consistent elements when you have your best days.”
list of things that make up the worst days for an executive
“Describe consistent elements when you have your worst days.”

Everyone has average days, great days, and bad days.

Is it possible to identify and list the elements, the ingredients, the events, that lead to a day’s label?

Assuming we can, then is it possible to architect our days in such a way as to increase best days and reduce (or eliminate) bad days?

Note: When reviewing your “get-to-do’s” and your “have-to-do’s”, do you see the predictable alignments?

Asking the wrong question

Walt Disney quote
Walt saw the future so vividly that after he died his team knew where Walt wanted to go.

Dear CEO, your biggest blindspot….

In thinking more about it, totally confounded why you can’t (won’t?) answer the singularly most important question, “What is your vision?

Could it be the wrong question for you?

No, not in a million years.

Note: Spent 30 years deconstructing and then reconstructing Disney’s world-class, time-tested Organizational Vibrancy DNA, into brilliantly simple and easily transferable insights.

The first, and most important, of the 19 architectural blueprints is Vision.
