The future is a foreign country

By Jim Whitt There’s a monument in Liberal, Kan. that reminds me of how different the world looked like 30 years ago. It’s easy to miss because it lies flat on the ground like a stone marking a grave in a cemetery. And in a sense, that’s what it is. It’s a concrete slab upon which once stood a Purina feed mill. I used to ship feed out of that plant when I was in sales with Purina. When I left the company in 1987 that mill was running 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It was idle… Read More

The future belongs to contrarians

By Jim Whitt If you were going to build the largest hotel in North America, where would you build it? The logical thing to do would be to build it in one of the continent’s largest metropolitan areas. Maybe New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles or Florida. That would make sense, wouldn’t it? Find out where the most people need overnight accommodations and build a hotel big enough to hold them. But William Cornelius Van Horne didn’t choose New York, Los Angeles or Florida for the largest hotel in North America — he chose Banff. Banff? Yes, Banff — Banff,… Read More

Purpose-Based Business Approach Comes to Tulsa and Atlanta

By Jim Whitt I’ve never seen a time in my life where there is more anxiety about the state of our economy than right now. We’ve been mired in an economic swamp since the meltdown of 2008. And yet my business has gotten better each year since 2008. No, I don’t have a magic formula for creating wealth or I’d be selling it in an infomercial on TV. The key to the success of the last four years is directly attributable to what I was doing for the 20 years before 2008. I was building a new business model. I… Read More

What will the world look like in 30 years?

By Jim Whitt While speaking at a meeting in Australia I shared the platform with Steve Tighe, a future strategist. This was in the fall of 2008, which coincided with the “fall” of 2008 when the economy collapsed. Keep in mind that many major corporations and financial institutions were so totally unprepared for this free-fall that their only salvation was a taxpayer bailout. The devastation was so severe that the economy still hasn’t recovered. How and why did this happen? Part of the answer comes from a recent article Steve wrote entitled: Time to Slow Down: “For many companies, it’s… Read More

How We Can Create Millions of Jobs and Pump Billions of Dollars into the Economy

By Jim Whitt There are over 600 million passenger cars in the world not to mention a few million planes, trains, buses and trucks. 99% of these modes of transportation are propelled by internal combustion engines which are fueled by our most abundant natural resource – fossil fuel. Yes, there are alternative sources of energy and I’m all for them. In my book, Riding for the Brand: The Power of Purposeful Leadership, I paint a picture of a future where hydrogen powered vehicles are the norm. And I look forward to the day when that happens. But I’m a practical… Read More

What Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson Can Teach Us about Change

By Jim Whitt A few months ago, Charlie Sheen seemed to be on top of the world. Then his world turned upside down. What’s really sad is that Charlie thought he was, to use his terminology, winning. And why shouldn’t he? He was raking in millions of dollars as the star of the highest rated sitcom on television. By many standards Charlie Sheen was a success. He probably really believed he possessed Adonis DNA and Tiger Blood. He saw absolutely no need to change. Now he has no show. Mel Gibson, another celebrity whose problems are well documented, knows what… Read More

Do You Have Organizational Sclerosis?

By Jim Whitt A friend of mine who was attending the South by Southwest festival in Austin emailed this summary of one of the sessions he was attending: “Blockbuster had it all figured out. Kodak was America’s favorite company. Tower Records was the place to be. Cunard was the fastest way to travel. Alas, no more. Each of these companies were blindsided by innovation. In the blink of an eye, their entire reason for being disappeared into thin air. Every day companies new and old, small and large, start down the path to obsolescence. Some have no idea that they… Read More

The Prevailing Point of View

By Jim Whitt A friend sent me an article entitled In a Downturn, Provoke Your Customers* in which the authors write about provocation-based selling. Being a professional provoker, I found the principles described in provocation-based selling to be congruent with my approach as a consultant and speaker. One of the things I really like about the provocation-based selling approach is that it challenges the prevailing point of view as opposed to aligning with the prevailing point of view. You can sell a lot of stuff to people using the prevailing point of view because it’s familiar to them. But you’re… Read More

Stop Planning and Start Pioneering

By Jim Whitt Before you invest time and money in traditional strategic planning consider this — only 5-10% of strategic plans are ever implemented. The reason most organizations engage in strategic planning is to reduce anxiety. It’s like taking a couple of aspirin for a headache. In this case the headache is the future. The aspirin is a couple of days locked in a room putting checkmarks in the appropriate boxes. Mission statement (yada, yada, yada): check; SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats): check; long range goals (3-5 years): check. Ah, that feels better. And like the aspirin bottle, the… Read More
