When the bar is set high

Couple of drops of moisture from a restaurant drinking glass. Who would notice? Who would care? Who would take a photo? Who would later decide to use it in a blog post?

When the bar is set high, failures are glaring.

When it’s set low, no one notices.

Think about where you set your bar for your daily attitude.

And ask yourself, “Is this my best self?”

Inspire yourself.

How many have been written or recorded?

Mickey Mouse ears from behind
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?

We know great leadership is a competitive advantage

Disney Keynote Speakers

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.

Excellence…every time?

UIHC
Working with CEO’s is awesome, and challenging.

 

Heading out at 7:20am this morning via Lyft to Orlando International Airport to attend a surprise 50th birthday party for a CEO i’ve known since 2014.

Our relationship began as a business association – as a contracted business advisor.

As we’ve worked together we’ve become friends – the same way it happens when you are colleagues.

The label pin photo is from a multi-year Disney Institute client (a different executive).

Here’s what i’ve come to expect from CEOs: they all intuitively know culture is their most important asset. And they struggle to make it their number one priority.

The road to excellence has no finish line

Disney Creativity Speakers
Glacier National Park a few days ago at dusk. Lake McDonald Lodge employee beach, just down from our cabin. The employees don’t need much, but they do need something (special).

 

If the evidence shows that there’s a better way to do this, are you open to changing?  – Seth Godin

 

Taking risks is risky. So is playing it safe.

 

At Disney, we are never satisfied.

And we are ok with that.

We wouldn’t be who we are without it.

It’s how we solve for impossible.

We like having that reputation.

Hard work, as a collective organization, is its own reward.
