Oscars Mix Up: The Promise of Being Present - Jason Hewlett

By cmiadmin | Feb 28, 2017 | Comments Off

Following the biggest gaffe in Academy Awards history, PricewaterhouseCoopers launched a full investigation into the mix-up of the Best Picture envelope mishap.  

(I was so wrapped up in what had happened from a Stage Performer’s perspective that I blogged HERE the night of the incident)  

It was revealed there are two of the same card showing the winners names in the secret locked briefcases of those overseeing the stage production, with PwC workers on both sides of the stage ready to hand each presenter the appropriate envelope.  In this case it was Martha Ruiz, and managing partner, Brian Cullinan.  

Upon Emma Stone winning Best Actress for “La La Land” she went backstage and was quickly photographed by Cullinan of PwC, who was excited for her win.  He then posted about it on Twitter.  Meaning, immediately in the middle of doing his job he was distracted by something he wanted to share with the world, and was temporarily unfocused on his job and the task at hand.  

This is normally not a big deal, to update your Twitter account with something neat that just happened, but in this case it caused all kinds of problems.

His job was: Give the correct envelope for the next presenter to speak from stage.

Unfortunately those next presenters were Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, now marked for life as having made the blunder, as they were handed the duplicate card for Best Actress Emma Stone and “La La Land”, which is what they read on stage for Best Picture!  

Sadly in this case the world will always remember Beatty as the culprit.  

Sadly this could have been prevented.  

I made the case in my previous post that Beatty could have read the card in his head, noticed it was wrong, and asked for the correct card.  He certainly looked confused upon rewatching the video.  Obviously, stage time is warped, and eyesight is compromised, I have experienced it, and so that can prove very challenging to catch such a mistake when confused and thinking you were handed the right envelope.  

However, the obvious culprit is officially now the PwC employee, even managing partner Cullinan, who was trusted to do his job correctly.  

How does this apply to The Promise and why am I so passionate about this occurrence?  

That is easy: The Promise is PRESENCE.  

Be where you are, in the moment, and do your one and only job.  Do it with care, with precision, with focus.  

In this instance focus was lost, he shared his excitement online with Twitter, which would be everyone else in the world that didn’t matter in that moment, instead of concentrating on where he was in full presence and needed to be focused solely on the job at hand, and because he wasn’t it caused the greatest mishap in Awards Show history.  

This happens all the time in many business settings and in life.  

In business, I once missed the performance given by someone right before me in favor of hitting the bathroom.  Upon taking the stage I launched into my opening number, Billy Joel’s “The Piano Man”, harmonica and piano blaring, and absolutely no one singing along, which never happened before.  The whole show was thrown off.  Later I found out the opening act had done one song, one number….yep, “The Piano Man” by Billy Joel.  Had I been present in that moment, watched what was happening before me, I could have changed my opener.   I wasn’t present.  

In healthcare the biggest cause of malpractice and lawsuits is in unfocused employees mistakenly giving the wrong patient someone else’s medicine, resulting in death.  In law enforcement the most horrific accidents occur when there is a lack of communication, or getting all the information, or distraction.

In every day life the personal examples run rampant of the outcome from lack of presence.  The first time my daughter ever scored a goal in soccer I was scrolling through Facebook on my phone.  Hate to admit it, but that’s a real story.  Worse than that is distracted driving while on your phone, which has resulted in true tragedies.   

Ladies & Gentlemen, this was simply an Awards Show.  Really in the big scheme of things it was not life and death, really not a big deal if we look at it that way.  However, it could have been prevented!  And when we lose focus, aren’t present in the moment, mistakes happen that can affect many people.

Point is this: Keep Your Promise!  Be Present!  You may miss the first soccer goal, the big moment, or could change a life while driving.  In this moment one man decided to focus on an audience he wasn’t paid to keep up to date – his Twitter followers – and he ruined a whole awards show by not being present in one very small simple moment that made all the difference.  

I feel bad for him, as I’ve made mistakes in all areas of business and life too, and that is literally one of the main reasons I created The Promise is to help others avoid the same.

Question is: In what ways are you not Present when it matters most, in life and work, and what are you going to do about it?

When Was The Last Time You Made Someone Feel Special? - Ty Bennett

By cmiadmin | Feb 24, 2017 | Comments Off

I want you to take a minute and ask yourself this question: When was the last time I made someone feel special?

When was the last time you went above and beyond to make a difference for someone?

When was the last time you did something for your spouse, your kids, your team, or a stranger?

I was inspired last week on Valentine’s Day by an 8th grader named Ryan.

Last year on Valentine’s Day, as a 7th grader Ryan noticed some girls had more flowers and gifts than they could carry and others had nothing, He decided he wanted to make every girl feel special on Valentine’s Day and so Ryan made a goal to present a carnation to every girl at American Fork Junior High.

He started working odd jobs around his house and doing all he could to make enough money to carry out his goal and by Christmas he had enough to make it happen. So, with his mother’s help, he ordered 1000 fresh-cut carnations from Columbia. They arrived a few days before Valentines and Ryan and his helpers prepared 947 carnations for 947 young ladies – one for every girl in 8th grade. One by one they tied a small card to the stem with a variety of inspiring messages.

Last week on Valentine’s Day every 8th grade girl at American Fork Junior High School in Utah went home feeling special because of an exemplary young man named Ryan.

I think we should try to all find ways to make others around us feel special.

NoImageFor many companies the Cloud has changed the way they use software. For a fortunate few, it has completely changed the way they do business.

In the last quarter of 2016, Amazon made $3.53 billion in revenue from its Cloud business, up 47 percent from the same time last year. That division now accounts for more than 71 percent of Amazon’s $1.3 billion in operating income, confirming what was long suspected: retail and logistics may be just a sideshow compared to the profit potential of digital infrastructure. That was not always the case.

I remember the Internet as a kid. I was an early enthusiast: accessing bulletin boards with an acoustic coupler modem so slow that it loaded pictures one line of pixels at a time. From that perspective, it was inconceivable that one day we would be using the same infrastructure to stream high definition entertainment. Stranger still, that it would be the platform that ran the world.

It is easy to forget how quickly things have changed. Fast forward past AOL's startup disks, Netscape's list of cool web links and MySpace - we rapidly reached a point when we stopped thinking about the Internet as pipes, routers, and computer servers – and instead as a collection of digital services.

The Internet today is really an operating system, that powers a relatively small number of master platforms that in turn run much of the world’s applications, from performing complex calculations on demand to providing storage for both our personal and enterprise content.

All of that adds up to one thing: what it meant to be digital ten years ago, means something very different today.

If it was once enough to ensure that your business could be found online, now the real question is whether your business has been designed to be digital from the ground up.

Consider sales as an example.

In the old days, big enterprise software companies hired account executives to take prospects out to lunch, golf and even on vacation - to try and win big sales orders. Now, with self-service and subscription models, software companies won't even call you until you reach a certain number of active users. And even then, you probably won't get that free lunch.

Amazon may be the classic example of a company that constantly transforms itself, but it is not the only one.

John Deere is no longer just a tractor company, its predictive maintenance models means that it is also a company that sells data about tractors. Rolls Royce doesn't sell jet engines, it uses digital technology and sensors, to sell performance and uptime. Even Netflix, the wunderkind of 21st century entertainment, is a company in a state of constant reinvention. Not so long ago, after all, they made their money sending out DVDs in little red envelopes.

For leaders, the real priority when it comes to technology, is figuring out what is strategic and what is generic.

Generic technology is no more a source of advantage than running water or electricity – it is a utility. Being strategic means leveraging technology to design new experiences for customers and partners, as well as pushing the boundaries of how employees work, communicate and collaborate.

Even this late in the game, it is still not too late to reimagine how you do things. Digital reinvention, after all, is not something that great companies ever stop searching for.

The Promise at Home - Jason Hewlett

By cmiadmin | Feb 16, 2017 | Comments Off

In speaking on The Promise to corporate attendees, one of the principles is The Family – AKA The Team.

We all work as a Team, succeed as champions as a Team, sometimes share the sorrows of loss as the Team.

That is why I call it The Family.  Because once you’ve been through so much in the workplace, on the field of competition, or creating and executing an amazing event, YOU become a Family real quick.

The questions asked to end the presentation of The Family segment are as follows:

  1. How do you show TRUST in the abilities and Signature Moves of The Family / The Team?
  2. Give an example of how you’ve given another person within The Family the opportunity to excel in the past week:
  3. How are you taking what you’ve learned as a family member at work and doing the same at home with those who mean the most to you?

I have found this final question to be the toughest for any of us.

At work we have an Audience, customers who listen, who respect us and allow us to do our job.

Yet translate that over to home life and things are sometimes quite maddening, no matter if you have teens or little babies crawling around.

Regardless of the outcome, we must always keep The Promise to allow those in our lives to succeed in their own capacity.  Even when they are a 5 year old kid and you ask them to do something for the whole family.

For a few years I have performed the following routine as a way to show the importance of letting our little ones teach us, yes we can laugh about it, but the important part isn’t how the family prayer turns out, but rather that we just do it daily.  And then we can laugh that it still didn’t turn out like we hoped:

Maybe you can relate.  I’m just grateful we keep the Promise of giving our kids the chance to express themselves and we instruct from there.  We just make sure to be consistent and fully present.

The Promise is 100% PRESENCE.

The point is, we must show up – at work and at home.

How do you bring The Promise to work and home?

The Retro-Tech Revival - Mike Walsh

By cmiadmin | Feb 16, 2017 | Comments Off

I still can't quite get my head around it, but for some consumers, it seems that the future of technology lies in its past. Ancient feature phones, 8-bit video game consoles and even cassette players are all making a comeback. So is the retro-tech trend just sad Gen X'ers trying to relive the glories of their youth, or something more interesting?

All of us probably owned a Nokia 3310 at one point. Built like a tank, ugly as hell and virtually indestructible, it was like the mobile equivalent of those 70s Mercedes sedans that still serve as taxis in dusty, wild cities far from your comfort zone. Anyway, later this year, 17 years after its first introduction, and long after the demise of its original maker - HMD Global, a Finnish company that bought the rights to the Nokia brand, is bringing the 3310 back, 'Snake' game and all.

Old school cell phones are not the only retro-tech devices enjoying a revival.

Nintendo’s NES Classic Edition, a dimunitive plug-and-play box with 30 preinstalled games for the price of $145, was 2016’s hottest Christmas item. And for those willing to spend three times as much, you might consider the Analogue Nt mini - a solid block of aluminum and solid state electronics, that will play all 2,000 of the original Nintendo cartridges on modern televisions.

Both the Nokia 3310 and the 8-bit Nintendo are as much slow-tech as retro-tech.

Like a typewriter, they are relatively simple, reliable, and focused in their application. There are no software updates, social sharing buttons or background data leaks. They are distracting in their own way, but distraction-free compared to the 'Skinner box' nature of modern devices.

And yet, in my view, this current resurgence inobsolete hardware is more than just nostalgia - it is part of an emerging subculture around re-purposing or 'retro-modding' old technologies into new forms.

If the retro-modding scene in America has a ground zero, it is Ben Heck.

Millions have watched his YouTube show where he hacks devices from phones to wheelchairs. Generally his targets for adaption are old game consoles. Heck deconstructs them and morphs them into new, miniaturized, bonsai-like configurations. Whether it be turning an old Super Nintendo into a handheld or reincarnating an Atari 2600 game system, Heck’s adaptions incorporate modern components, better screens, and smaller, less power-hungry elements. Heck himself simply calls his work 'portabilizing'.

Another way of thinking about retro-modders is as an example of what sociologist Henry Jenkins calls 'participatory culture', where gamers cross the threshold of consuming content to re-mixing it. But as 3D printing, low-cost components, and online knowledge communities make modifying old technologies easier to accomplish - modding may shift from being a garage hobby, to being a powerful springboard to disruptive innovation.

Palmer Luckey is a case in point.

Inspired by Heck, he set up a forum called Mod Retro, and in between repairing and selling old iPhones for money, started buying up and modifying old virtual reality gear from the 90s.

In classic modding style, he took the equipment he bought apart to see if he could put it back together with more modern parts. He cannibalized components from his collection of head-mounted displays, and created prototypes with brand new screens. These projects were the basis of what would eventually become Oculus Rift, bought by Facebook for $2 billion in 2014, just 18 months after raising $2.4 million on Kickstarter.

There are close parallels between modders and the Maker Movement. Both modders and Makers refuse to see technology as a hermetically sealed package, but rather as a book to be opened, studied, adapted and re-purposed. As as was the case with virtual reality, companies may abandon a technology for economic or strategic reasons, but this doesn’t mean that their prior investments can’t be a platform for continued innovation by a community of hackers and tinkerers.

So here's a thought for you to consider: what discarded technologies in your bottom drawer might contain the seeds of the future’s next big idea?

One of The Biggest Keys to Influence & Charisma - Ty Bennett

By cmiadmin | Feb 15, 2017 | Comments Off

We all know someone who is charismatic. They have a charm that can inspire devotion in others.

My question is: What creates that type of Charisma? What produces that type of presence?

One of the biggest keys to influence and charisma is being genuinely happy for other people’s success.

When someone achieves something great – do you feel threatened by their success or do you celebrate it?

One of the surest signs of someone being comfortable in their own skin is how they see others and how they can separate others experiences and achievements from their own.

Too many people subscribe to the idea that tearing others down actually builds you up and it’s just not true. It makes you look weak and insecure because that is where it is actually coming from. People who are secure with who they are genuinely happy for others, they celebrate their success and cheer them on.

And that makes them charismatic.

The Promise from Prison - Jason Hewlett

By cmiadmin | Feb 10, 2017 | Comments Off

Where and how do we spend our time?

This past 2 weeks I made literally no money at a couple of gigs, and instead donated a lot of time to speak to people who needed to hear The Promise.  Whether it was a youth group, religious events, educators, family counselors, or even in a place where most speakers never dare to go even when invited: The Prison.

Granted, it is so wonderful to receive kind comments from audience members as they give immediate feedback on how changing one simple word in their life makes all the difference.  From a “Goal” to a “Promise” brings the highest level of commitment. Everyone prefers to keep a promise.   I love how this message resonates in business and life!

However, it hits from a different angle when you get a letter from an inmate in prison two weeks after the event.

Was once a stranger, now a friend, I can’t wait to help him get his feet on the ground when he serves his time.

But I’m not waiting til then to help him.  My promise is about now.  BE PRESENT is the essence of a promise made and kept.  Not someday, not somewhere else….NOW.

What he doesn’t realize is I sent him a letter the other day, before realizing he had written me, too, and he’ll get it soon.

You see, we never met before the gig, but upon hearing him introduce me with his SLAM POETRY and aspirations to become a Speaker someday I knew I was in the presence of greatness.  It was beautiful what he did.  Standing ovation from his inmates, cheering him on.  It’s rare for me to be upstaged before I take the stage.  But this is now my brother.

So I wrote him a letter to suggest he continue his pursuit and I have his back.

Nothing like the present to uplift another, to show love, to care, to breathe life into another’s hopes and dreams.

When we acknowledge those in the audience, be it your customer, client, anyone that serves you well or gives you business, how do you say thank you?  Do we recognize greatness enough in those around us?

If on the Team at work, those we see everyday, how do we find a way to uplift and encourage those we work with so often?

And then, once home, with our Home Team, our Family, are we giving everything we have to the customer back at work yet leaving nothing for the family at home?  Or are we treasuring the moments with these beautiful people?

This young man, from a prison cell, just filled me beyond measure with gratitude for taking the time to write as I read his letter and the tears flowed.  Woah – this is sobering.

How present and engaged am I to those that are here, now, and how do I love them strong enough?  Do I leave them wondering if I’m present or thinking of being somewhere else?  Is my phone and Facebook as my distraction more important than the child waiting for me to look up?  Is the lunch meeting with an old friend or new client just another casual moment as I think of where else I want to be?

I know this: Going to the prison makes me want to do all I can to always be fully present and keep that promise.

So grateful I took the time to go speak to those good-hearted men in the prison.

Rethinking Rules - Mike Walsh

By cmiadmin | Feb 08, 2017 | Comments Off

There is a classic trade-off between rules and innovation, particularly if you work in a heavily regulated industry. So how do leaders balance the need for stability, compliance and certainty with a 21st century appetite for adaptability, agility and disruption? One approach is to learn to think a little less like a ruler, and more like a machine.

Late last year I gave a talk in Manila for the corporate governance team of a major telco. The company was heavily scrutinized by regulators and maintained a traditional governance regime. Not surprisingly, that meant it wasn't easy to try new things. Many in the company wanted to be rule-breakers, and yet, most of time, they just ended up getting broken by the rules.

Rules are fickle things. They can appear as authoritative as a set of commandments on a stone tablet, or as notional as a speed limit on a back road in the country. In either case, however, rules are not the natural enemy of innovation.

The reason for that is simple. Most rules are actually designed as short-cuts. Rules are heuristics, designed to speed up transactions when all parties can't assume that they can trust each other. As such, a good rule should not be immovable, but in fact, the very opposite: a principle subject to constant evaluation against a goal of efficient governance.

Reimagining the role of rules is relevant when you start to think about how a company might work in the 21st century. For example when Tony Hsieh, the CEO of Zappos decided to get rid of job titles - it was more than just a fancy experiment in company culture. He wanted to see if Holocracy would work as a more effective set of rules than traditional 20th century management.

Whether it be smart contracts, distributed ledgers or algorithmic decision-making, the company rules in the future may start to look more like lines of code, than clauses in an employee handbook.

For anyone working in a highly regulated industry or company today, there are a few things that you can start to think about:

1. Patterns not punnishments

Set some simple, clear values to guide behavior and then consider a machine learning approach to compliance. Look for patterns that suggest misconduct, rather than attempting to codify and limit specific actions.

2. Designing not doing

Shift more decision making to algorithms, and devote more of your time to designing them. Rather than setting rules and enforcing them, shift your focus to defining problems, reframing results and debating predictions.

3. Sharing not shaming

Work with ecosystem partners and regulators for sharing transactional data from your platform in real time. In some jurisdictions, this approach is already eliminating the need for traditional corporate tax returns.

The last few years have yielded significant breakthroughs in AI, largely because of the shift from trying to use advanced programming to model entire worlds with thousands of rules, to approaches that let machines learn for themselves. In my view, the key to reconciling the trade-off between rules and innovation, is to take a similarly adaptive approach to the way we design companies.

Rules may not be made to be broken, but they should certainly be open to being constantly re-written.

Kindness Is A Better Game Plan - Ty Bennett

By cmiadmin | Feb 08, 2017 | Comments Off

I could write this from a human decency standpoint and help you to see that we should be kinder to each other and extol the virtues of living this way but I also know that the people who need to read this are thinking what’s in it for me. So let me tell you why kindness is a strategy that will make you more influential. In other words – it’s a better game plan.

Last week I got stuck in the middle of the chaos of Delta’s worldwide computer system going down. I was flying through Atlanta on my way to Boston. We landed at 7:30 and because of the system failure we couldn’t pull into the gate. We sat on the tarmac until 10:30 pm, there were hundreds of planes that were in our same boat so once they got the system back online it took quite a while to move everyone along. My flight to Boston, which was supposed to leave at 9:25, was rescheduled for 2 am, but at 2 am it was delayed again until 3:30 and then at 3 am it was officially canceled. So I ended up hanging out in the airport all night, getting on a flight at 6 am that went through Baltimore and got me into Boston at 10:30 am. I gave a speech at 2 and was back at the airport by 3:30 to head home. It was a heck of a day.

As a frequent traveler I am often exposed to people who are dealing with stress (lost luggage, delayed or canceled flights, etc…) and I have to be honest – I am quite often embarrassed to see how they behave. As we sat on the tarmac the pilot actually felt it necessary to make an announcement where he said, “Ladies and gentlemen, we are so sorry for this inconvenience. The entire system is down and right now there is nothing we can do. They are working to get it back up but I want to point out to you that being verbally abusive to the flight attendants is not going to make this situation better or get you out of here faster.”

I watched people yell at the Delta help desk people, literally cussing them out, and then ask them to help them fix their situation.

The point of my ramblings is to simply say – kindness is never a bad game plan. Honey attracts more bees than vinegar. People are more likely to help you, buy from you, do business with you, refer business to you, etc… when you are kind and they like you.
