Video – The Don't Quit Poem
by On November 13, 2009

Inspirational video based on the famous Don’t Quit Poem.

Excert from the Don’t Quit Poem:

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest! if you must; but don’t you quit.

Video – The Extra Degree
by On November 6, 2009

At 211º water is hot. At 212º, it boils. And with boiling water, comes steam. And steam can power a locomotive. The one extra degree makes the difference.

This simple analogy reflects the ultimate definition of excellence. Because it’s the one extra degree of effort, in business and life, that can separate the good from the great.

Simple Truths of Service

Watch the video

This video was created by Ken Blanchard and Barbara Glanz. Barbara was hired by a supermarket chain to help increase their customer service. During her talk she stressed the point that EVERYONE can make a difference for their customers and that will make them come back to the store over and over.

A 19-year-old Down Syndrome grocery store bagger, Johnny didn’t think he could make a difference in the experience of his customers at first. Then he had an idea to make a “thought of the day” and include a printed copy in everyone’s grocery bags. As a result, Johnny’s checkout line was always longer than anyone else’s, and the shoppers were happy to wait in line just to get Johnny’s Thought of the Day.

One customer even remarked she made extra trips to the store just to get Johnny’s Thought of the Day! Even more amazing, because of Johnny’s simple act, the entire store’s effort to make memories for their shoppers increased exponentially.

What can you do to put your personal signature on your job that will creative a memory with your clients, a memory that will make them recommend you and become loyal?

Video – Tony Robbins on the Power of 1 Millimeter
by On September 18, 2009

Using a golf analogy, Tony Robbins demonstrates what we at Freedom Personal Development call the Winning Edge Theory.

The Winning Edge states that a tiny change, such as a few millimeters, can yield large results in the outcome.

When all hell is breaking loose in your life, all you need to ask is “What little thing do I need to change, and adjust by one millimeter, that can produce massive results on the backend?”

The good news is that when life is off balance and chaotic, you do not need to change EVERYTHING to get back on track, only a small aspect of what you are doing. This mindset makes the process of change and the manageability of the situation easier to wrap your mind around.

Historian and Pulitzer Prize winner David McCullough talks about the value of education.

He sites Milton Friedman, the famous economist, who said the most powerful motivating force is self-interest. He took this a step further and also said it is also our interest in our children and grandchildren. The overriding riding theme behind this thought is education.

Without education we cannot be a productive, innovative society that remains competitive in the global community.

Video – The Surprising Science of Motivation
by On September 4, 2009

In this talk featured at the TED Convention, career analyst Dan Pink examines the puzzle of motivation, starting with a fact that social scientists know but most managers don’t. Traditional rewards and incentives do not work and often do harm.

Dan has studied the science of human motivation, specifically the dynamics of external and internal motivators.

There is a mismatch to what science has proven and what business does. Rewards can narrow the focus of people’s thinking and restricts their creative possibilities.

In today’s global market place, left brain activities, such as accounting, computer programming can be easily outsourced and automated. Therefore, there is a premium for workers that think with their right brains – out of the box conceptual abilities.

At a study conducted at MIT found that when tasks where mechanical, bonuses worked as expected; the higher the pay, the better the performance. However, when the task called for even rudimentary cognitive skill, a larger reward lead to a poorer performance.

Science also gives a solution for how to motivate people and it is rooted in intrinsic motivation and revolves around 3 key building blocks:

*  Autonomy – The urge to direct our own lives
*  Mastery – The desire to get better and better at something that matters
*  Purpose – To be of service to something larger than ourselves

Management concepts work wonderful if you want compliance. But if you want engagement, self-direction is the way to “manage” people.

Examples of companies that have used these concepts are discussed, including google and the wikipedia model.
