A Memorial Day Tribute

By Jim Whitt As this was our first trip to France we suffered from a perpetual state of directional disability. And that is how we met Michel. We wandered through the gate of a small cemetery not a stone’s throw from Omaha Beach in Normandy.  Michel did not speak much English but fortunately, Suedy, a friend of ours from the U.S. spoke a little French. So, with much hand signaling, exaggerated facial expressions and a few exchanges of French and English we were able to communicate. It turned out to be a most fascinating conversation. Michel explained to us that… Read More

What do you think of when you hear the word “politician?”

By Jim Whitt I conducted an experiment on Facebook posting this question: “I’m doing research for an article I’m writing and need some help. What do you think of when you hear the word ‘politician?’” Kenny Rogers replied, “That’s kind of like asking 20 different people what their interpretation of the old psychological ink blots is. You will get 20 different answers.” In fact, I got a lot more. You can check them out and even add your response to my post on Facebook. Some were positive such as: “Needed. Respect those that serve and do a good job.” Others… Read More

Six magic words: What can I do to help?

By Jim Whitt I was on a packed flight on small jet flying from Garden City, Kansas to Dallas. The flight attendant was frantically trying to cover all the bases required to get the plane off the ground. In the bulkhead seat two rows in front of me was an elderly woman who insisted on keeping her bag on the floor which of course was against regulations. There is only one flight attendant on these small jets and this attendant was losing her cool. The elderly woman spoke no English and the frustrated attendant kept raising her voice telling the… Read More

Two words to help you win in life and business

By Jim Whitt Golf looks like an easy game when you watch the pros on television. The problem starts when you go to the golf course and discover you’re not a pro. Rory McIlroy shared two words with the television audience after he won the British Open that all of us can use to help us in golf, life and business. The two words are spot and process. I’m paraphrasing but McIlroy said that he focused on his process and not the results. This is exactly the opposite of what most of us have been taught. We have been conditioned… Read More

It’s time to declare our independence…again

By Jim Whitt This was orginally published two years ago but the message needs to be repeated until we “get it.” There is one number that needs to be updated in paragraph four. Our national debt is now nearing $17.6 trillion. If you want to know what led to the creation of the United States of America you have to read the Declaration of Independence. The defining statement of this document would have to be: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that… Read More

Are you in the people business?

    By Jim Whitt Having accumulated a coat of mud and manure on my boots while touring cattle operations in Texas I decided to climb into the shine chair at Love Field. The man revitalizing my boots asked what kind of business I was in. I told him I was in the people business. He looked at me with a big smile on his face and said, “Just like me!” Indeed he is. He’s in the people business and he’s good at it. While shining my boots, he kept a patter going to attract customers, “You can’t close the… Read More

Who’s to say what’s possible?

By Jim Whitt On May 6, 1954 Roger Bannister ran a mile in 3:59.4 minutes. That’s no big deal if you consider the fact that his time has been broken hundreds of times in the 60 years since then. But it was a big deal then because he accomplished what most considered to be impossible. He ran a mile in less than four minutes. No human being had accomplished that feat until then. In my work as a consultant I am constantly provoking people and businesses to consider new and different ways to do what they do every day. It’s… Read More

Is your business sustainable?

By Jim Whitt When was the last time you saw someone using a Blackberry? In the not too distant past they were the king of the mobile phone hill. Now they are struggling to survive. They cut 4,500 jobs in 2013 and accepted a buyout offer from a private equity firm for only $9 a share. That’s how quickly things can change in the world we live in today. Blackberry is proof positive that your business could be on the brink of imploding and you might not know it until it’s too late. The window of opportunity is unforgiving in… Read More

Matt Dillon on leadership: If you behave badly there will be consequences

By Jim Whitt In the opening scene of an episode of Gunsmoke, Matt Dillon rides up on a peddler who is camped alongside a creek. When the peddler learns that Matt is a U.S. Marshall the following conversation ensues: Peddler: “Say, you aren’t after a bad man are you?” Matt Dillon: “I was.” Peddler: “Where is he?” Matt Dillon: “I buried him this morning.” I’ve found many lessons on life and leadership watching Gunsmoke. This particular scene offers a message that every leader needs to send to every employee in the organization: “If you choose to behave badly, there will… Read More
