How many have been written or recorded?

Stumbled on some old photos Disney Institute yesterday.

How many have been written or recorded?

How many books and articles have been written and how many videos and podcasts have been recorded about having a positive attitude?

What are they all trying to say?

They can’t all be saying something different.

So how have you sifted through it all to create your personal leadership template?

Leadership vision challenges

U Turn stoplight
First time seeing a light like this one. Heading West on Buena Vista Drive last night. We used this at the Casting Center.

Recall a time when your lofty vision became a reality. What allowed that to happen?

Recall a time when you were part of a team that pursued and completed someone else’s lofty vision. What allowed that to happen?

What are the similarities between your vision and someone else’s vision?

Recall a time when you had a vision that never materialized. What held you back?

Recall a time when you were on a team that was pursuing someone else’s vision and it never materialized. What held it back?

Now, think about your current vision. What’s to gain? What’s to lose?

What and how can you replicate what worked for you before? What and how can you replicate what worked as part of someone else’s vision? And how do you avoid the common traps.

Back to your vision and the power it holds…

Why is recalling and saying your vision, by others, a challenge? What if it wasn’t?

Do you believe there are scalable success factors that you can use to architect the desired future state?

Why or why not?

Too busy to take advantage of this?

Disney speaker jeff noel
Change your view and everything you see changes. Such a simple concept. So uncommonly practiced by most. Too busy.

Too busy to take advantage of this?

What?

.thinking .differently

An easy way to .think .differently is simply to change your vantage point.

The worst thing about thinking this way

excuses, habits, rituals
Wellness excuses, habits, rituals. This immediately triggered a business application.

The challenge with permitting your existing culture today is that it makes you more likely to permit it tomorrow.

The challenge with not taking action today is that it makes you less likely to take action tomorrow.

The challenge with not doing what you can do today, is that it also makes you less likely to not do what you can tomorrow.

We know great leadership is a competitive advantage

Disney Keynote Speakers
Branded photo?

Any leader and any organization, in any industry, can architect world-class leadership excellence using systems and processes they control. World-class leadership excellence is not reserved for special organizations that have secrets others don’t and never will have. Exceptional leadership is built with four fundamental blueprints. Jeff’s Disney Keynote will be interactive, fun, thought-provoking, and comes with a personal challenge for every participant.

First, a vision statement and a vision are not the same. You’ll learn the fundamental difference and why every leader has the daily imperative to articulate a clear, concise, and compelling Vision for the future. This is the first rule of great leadership.

Most organizations consider training and development as a single entity. Jeff reveals the distinct and powerful difference and makes a compelling case for separating the two – one yields compliance, the other yields commitment. There are four simple tactics for increasing Involvement

Leaders, clarity is power. The clearer the expectations, the better the results. There are two universal sets of Accountability metrics. The key is a balanced and agreed upon set of expectations.

Every leader experiences the honeymoon effect and eventually, the real world settles in and the ultimate (and relentless) leadership challenge is how to find a million ways to inspire, excite, and motivate a team that will face setbacks, obstacles, and unwelcomed change.

Expect to be wowed. Expect to have fun. Expect to be enlightened. Expect to be put to task. You deserve it. C-ya real soon.

BIO:

Jeff Noel is a 30-year Walt Disney World Leadership veteran, two-time Disney Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, a published author, and highly-sought business advisor, helping Fortune 500 companies worldwide achieve greater success through a series of programs focusing on Jeff’s unique approach and architecture for World-Class Organizational Vibrancy. He has spent his life deconstructing and then reconstructed Disney’s DNA into clear, concise, and compelling business insights. Jeff not only helps you see remarkable opportunity, but he also engages you in wonderfully participatory ways so you actually “feel” his context-neutral insights – it’s the “feeling” of these insights (and the simple architecture) that will motivate, excite, and inspire you to create a future that’s better than now. Much better.
