Is what you do important?

By Jim Whitt I was on a conference call as part of my preparation for speaking at a staff development meeting for a trade association. The CEO and a couple of senior staff members were on the other end of the line. My parting question was, “What’s the most important thing you want your people to take away from my presentation?” The CEO didn’t hesitate, “I want each of them to believe that what they do is important.” To drive that point home in my presentation, I decided to share this story about my friend Kent Stroman. Kent grew up… Read More

Can “Praise Addiction” Mess With Your Career?

October 6, 2016 by Purpose Unlimited In a day and age when everyone seems to get a trophy regardless of how they place, is it possible to get addicted to praise. And as a result, can it really mess with our career progression? In a recent article at Inc.com, J.T. O’Donnell suggests that we should not let praise become our professional demise. According to her, compliments can actually be a bribe that may be holding us back in our careers.

Humility – A Primal Virtue with Modern Value

August 25, 2016 by Purpose Unlimited According to an article on Mark’s Daily Apple, humility tends to be a value that is in short supply today. According to the author, “In truth, little in our culture today encourages a humble disposition.” In addition, it is noted that, for one reason or another, it’s the “loudest, boldest, and (often) most obnoxious voices that garner our attention.” So, what does humility mean to the human condition as it is today? The article suggests the following: Situating one’s self-concept within the steadying perspective of a broader backdrop Moving through life and relationships and business… Read More

Freedom – Your Best Investment

August 24, 2016 by Purpose Unlimited In a recent article written by Jeff Zias, and published on LinkedIn, Jeff talks about how long-term sustained growth comes through innovation in companies. Jeff also clearly states that, “It’s innovative work that continues to beat competitors, and it is the engaged employee that does this innovative work.” So, with that in mind, what do organizations need to do to drive innovation, and more importantly engagement in the workplace? Jeff recommends the following advice originally given by Daniel Pink, author of the book, Drive! Give team members autonomy in their roles. Allow them to be… 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

Christmas is all about change, leadership and purpose

  By Jim Whitt Sometimes it’s strange where you find inspiration. My friend Monty Teeter asked me to speak at his company’s Christmas party. I was struggling with what I was going to say when I stumbled onto a quote from a book on project management I was reading. That quote made me think about the birth of Jesus so I’ll start with this passage from the Bible: “After Jesus was born in Bethlehem village, Judah territory— this was during Herod’s kingship—a band of scholars arrived in Jerusalem from the East. They asked around, ‘Where can we find and pay… 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

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

A prison of your own making

By Jim Whitt This is an excerpt from Chapter 6  of The Transformational Power of Purpose: Finding & Fulfilling Your Purpose in Life: I was in a restaurant on Fisherman’s Wharf overlooking San Francisco Bay. A radiant sunset framed a silhouette of the Golden Gate Bridge to my left and to my right I could see Alcatraz, the former island prison which once housed such infamous criminals as Al Capone and Machine Gun Kelly. How ironic. Here were two famous landmarks that symbolized both freedom and captivity. The Golden Gate Strait through which so many freedom-seeking immigrants had passed, leads… Read More
