Top 3 leadership priorities?

Disney Culture expert, Jeff Noel architecture
Today’s posts walk through all five industry-neutral organizational pillars. You probably know this, Reputation is synonymous with Brand Loyalty. And, Improvement is synonymous with Creativity and Innovation.
Disney Leadership Speaker Jeff Noel
You know firsthand how powerful clarity is with your own priorities.

A leader and a direct report are paired and each has a Post-it note. The leader writes the top three leadership priorities she expects of her direct report. And the direct report writes the top three leadership priorities she thinks the leader expects from her.

What are the odds the lists match?

Whatever percentage you guessed, why?

What does a SWOT analysis reveal from your number?

Bonus: Imagine if it was always a 100% match with every pair of employees.

Note: SWOT = Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats.

Scale your products so the ideal customer receives what they are hungry for. Not only feed them, but give them the recipe so they can feed themselves.

Order up

“Order up” is what a cook says when placing a ready plate on the wait staff pickup shelf.

Way before any of this is possible, brainstorming the menu happens.

Why?

It’s important to think through what hungry people want to eat, what would easily sell, what has a decent profit margin, and what is practical to store and prepare repeatedly?

Wisdom: Whatever you decide to “cook” at scale, it should fill your soul with a higher purpose you can’t find doing anything else.
