The Positive Power of Rejection

By Jim Whitt I just read an article in the Wall Street Journal about some famous people who were rejected when they applied for acceptance to prestigious universities. The list included people like Warren Buffet and Ted Turner.   I was so far down the intellectual food chain that I would have never dreamed of applying to Harvard or Princeton. I sat out a semester after high school and then attended three semesters as an art major in junior college. Not wanting to add my name to the burgeoning rolls of starving artists, I dropped out and cowboyed in a… Read More

Turn Down the Sound? No Problem!

By Jim Whitt I was meeting with a business associate at a coffee house one day and the music was so loud we were about to resort to sign language to converse. I walked up to the counter, got the attention of the barista and yelled, “Could you please turn the music down. We can’t hear each other talk!” He shook his head and yelled back, “We don’t have any control over the volume!” Oh really? I suppose aliens on the planet Starbuck are beaming the music in. It reminded me of the opening narration of the old Outer Limits… Read More

By Jim Whitt A local company received a letter from a prospective customer: “Sirs…Could you please send me a catalogue and price list of your products, namely concrete tools and saws. Thank you for your time…Signed: Joe Bob Smith.” The letter found its way into my hands via a friend who showed me the envelope it arrived in after I had read the letter. It was stamped: “THIS LETTER HAS BEEN MAILED FROM THE WISCONSIN PRISON SYSTEM.” Do you remember how the old Dragnet series always ended? “The story you have just seen is true. The names were changed to… Read More

Professional Provoking…Online

By Jim Whitt  Monty Teeter was one of my first consulting clients when I started my business a couple of decades ago. I apparently struck a nerve during a conversation with Monty one day. He wanted to know what my official title was. I told him I was a management consultant. “No you’re not,” he responded. “You’re a professional provoker!” He went on to tell me — in no uncertain terms — that I was constantly provoking him. I’ve learned to embrace the title of professional provoker because it’s an accurate description of what I do. There’s a method to… Read More

Is Your Job Recreational?

By Jim Whitt Fred entered the room carrying a picture of John Wayne. Along with the other people in the room, Fred had been given the assignment of reading Riding for the Brand: The Power of Purposeful Leadership. The first thing on the meeting agenda was to discuss what they had read and how the principles in the book applied to their organization. I asked Fred why he was carrying a picture of John Wayne. “Because,” he said, “John Wayne is all about Riding for the Brand.” To help you connect the dots, I wrote the book as a template… Read More
