Extended, personal leadership retreat

Glacier National Park, driving North from Apgar along Glacier’s Western border.

What is one positive outcome from Covid-19?

There are many, just like there are many downsides…i’m unemployed for the rest of the year. Focusing on loss will not change the loss. Focusing on possibilities will attract possibilities.

For example…

Thanks to a personalized, extended, individual leadership retreat this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Thinking things i’ve never had a chance to consider in 60 years.

The questions that will be discovered are questions never considered before, not even remotely.

Never. Ever.

How cool is that?

The price we pay

Disney service trophy
The price you pay for what i have is a lifetime of Disney Service.

The cost of unnecessary worry is insidiously debilitating.

Almost like the saying, a person who can read but doesn’t is no better off than an illiterate person.

Tricking people to ask the wrong questions allows others leaders to survive without having to know great answers.

Be careful.

You’re the leader tricking yourself.

Wait, you are one of the exceptions.

Congrats.

Teach others.

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?

Luck favors these people

Used Siri to dictate the above message walking home from gym yesterday. i don’t proof or edit Siri text messages to myself.

Here’s the original thought:

•  •  •  •  •

So the question everyone wants to know the answer to is:

“What does jeff noel know about life that we don’t already know?”

From that question, i can swap the word “life” with:

  • leadership
  • employee engagement
  • customer service
  • brand loyalty
  • creativity and innovation

This came to me while reflecting on the Disney Keynote Speech i gave four days ago. Also inspiring this train of thought is thinking about how to concisely position my new podcast, “If Disney Ran Your Life”

Two questions i ask to get better at anything

Disney Keynote Speakers
Published yesterday, Christmas Day, The First Noel.

Do you know the two secrets to long-term transformation?

If you want to get better at something ask yourself two questions.

1. How will my life change in 10 years if I succeed?

2. Why do I want to get better at this?

What you gain is vision and motivation.

Simply put, if you know where you are going and it’s life-changingly (made up that word) important to you, can you guess what’s gonna happen?

Also simple: if you don’t know where you are going, nor are you motivated to figure it out, nor motivated to get there…it makes the previous question’s answer ridiculously obvious.
