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

How to win the talent war…

By Jim Whitt During one 24 hour period I had four interesting conversations. Conversation #1: Someone in a key position with a large retail organization told me how the manager of one their stores came to him complaining about how poorly she is treated by her supervisor and her supervisor’s supervisor. The store manager is doing a good job — she manages their top performing store. The two supervisors’ behavior is a reflection of the CEO’s behavior. The store manager is actively looking for another job. The company spends next to nothing developing their people. Employees are just numbers —… Read More

So, You Want to Be a Guitar Hero?

This post is dedicated to my friend Nancy Baumunk who celebrates a birthday this week. By Jim Whitt I am not a guitar hero but I’ve played Guitar Hero. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, Wikipedia describes Guitar Hero as a series of music video games “in which players use a guitar-shaped peripheral to simulate the playing of lead, bass guitar and rhythm guitar across numerous rock music songs. Players match notes that scroll on-screen to colored fret buttons on the controller, strumming the controller in time to the music in order to score points, and keep the… 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

The most important thing is not how or what, it’s why

By Jim Whitt Last week I attended a seminar hosted by Minert & Associates, an accounting firm based in Tulsa and facilitated by my friend and fellow consultant, Nathan Mitchell. Nathan’s topic was Building your Business in Any Economy. Nathan explained that the most important thing to build your business in any economy is not the “how” or “what” you do. It’s the “why.” Tony Minert, the founder of Minert & Associates, validated that claim. He shared how he found the why in a workshop I conducted 12 years ago. I thought it was one of the worst workshops I’ve… Read More

The new theory of relativity

My week started cohosting the Power of Purpose in Business Radio program with Nathan Mitchell on Sunday night. Our guest was my good friend Mitch Counce, who is CEO of Servi-Tech, Inc. Servi-Tech has been a client of mine since 2007. Mitch talked about how they have implemented the principles from my book, Riding for the Brand: The Power of Purposeful Leadership to transform their company. The bottom line results are a 50% increase in revenue over the last five years. Keep in mind that has been during the worst economy our nation has experienced since the Great Depression. Mitch… Read More

The real cost of employee turnover

I wanted to share this article by my friend Nathan Mitchell. Nathan and I will be conducting a workshop in Tulsa on October 3. Click here for details. The real cost of employee turnover By Nathan Mitchell When it comes to costs, many organizations “cross their T’s” and “dot their I’s” – that is, unless you are talking about the costs of employee turnover. For one reason or another, many businesses simply don’t measure it. Some organizations, however, know their percentage of employee turnover quite well, but don’t calculate the long-term consequences on overhead expenses like training and development. What… 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

Culture Matters

By Jim Whitt I just read an article by Bill Barnett in the Harvard Business Review entitled When Choosing a Job, Culture Matters. That is an understatement. Let me share an example. I know of an employee who went to work for a company and was so excited he couldn’t wait to get started. This exceptionally talented and qualified candidate was hired for a newly created position and he was determined to show what a difference he, and the new position, could make. The problem was that he discovered he was the only one who cared about making a difference…. Read More
