The Excellence Dividend Fundamentals

Another offering from Tom! He turned The Excellence Dividend into a 451-slide PowerPoint complete with annotations on grey-background slides. They help by adding detail to some of his less easily understood shorthand. In person, Tom uses his slides like note cards to bring to mind something he wants to tell his audience. In the PowerPoint, the annotated grey slides provide those added stories. Find it here:

PEOPLE [REALLY] FIRST PowerPoint Plus

Been messing around—what else can I call it? The product is two new PowerPoints. The first is a generic PPT on The Excellence Dividend. The second—which I really hope you look at—is a "People (REALLY) First" PPT. I am getting more and more agitated! There is a slide at the start that says, "70%, 85%, 87%." and that's it. The numbers refer to surveys on the percentage of people who are unhappy and unengaged at work. The next slide says: "SHAME ON YOU!!"

I argue at the top of the presentation: THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR NOT MAKING ANY ORGANIZATION OF ANY SIZE IN ANY BUSINESS A GREAT PLACE TO WORK. And I mean it. Are you with me? Or not? And if you are on my side, what do you plan to do about it in the next 48 hours—make that in the next 60 minutes?

Summarizing the Summary

As I do various podcasts in particular, I keep trying to boil down the fundamental argument of The Excellence Dividend. Here you will find the heart of the matter in ... SEVEN SLIDES (with annotation added).

Lemme know what you think at twitter (@tom_peters).

FYI: Here is the first slide ...

THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR NOT MAKING ANY ORGANIZATION/ ANY SIZE/ANY BUSINESS A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

EVERY LEADER/2018 HAS A MORAL OBLIGATION TO DEVELOP PEOPLE SO THAT WHEN THEY LEAVE THEY ARE BETTER PREPARED FOR TOMORROW THAN THEY WERE WHEN THEY ARRIVED.

ANY/ALL ORGANIZATIONS ARE PEOPLE SERVING PEOPLE. LEADERS: PEOPLE SERVING PEOPLE SERVING PEOPLE.
