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:

Tom encourages you to download the file, use parts you like, and share it with your readers and friends.

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.

Another Addition to the Excellence Dividend Tools

Well, here I go again. Trying to produce useful Excellence Dividend companions. This is a "get it off my chest" PowerPoint. The big ideas about which I am feeling more passionate each day!

I dearly hope you find stuff to steal!!!!!

(PLEASE READ THIS DAMN THING. THE POWERPOINT IS SHORT AND I HOPE SWEET—AND THE VERY BEST I CAN DO!!!!!)

The Excellence Dividend
In PowerPoint/Annotated

Following my April 12 speech in Columbus, Ohio, and two weeks of book publicity—many, many, podcasts, I decided I wanted to complement the new book with an up-to-the-minute PowerPoint. You will find it here. The Big Deal is substantial annotation.

I want you to buy the book!!
Plus copies for colleagues!!

This is not a substitute—but I hope it is a pretty complete addendum. Moreover, an addendum that might help you directly in, say, presentations you make.

Enjoy.
And please let me know via Twitter what you think!

Columbus/Enhanced

I had a great time in Columbus, which is a league leader in business growth, aiming to redouble its already substantial efforts. (The topic was economic development—which allowed me to focus on my SME Love Affair.) As usual, we immediately posted the slides here at tompeters.com.

However, a couple of days later I got to playing around with the slideset. As it was, I didn't get through all the material—typical for me. Nonetheless, I'm now posting a "What if" version of the presentation—what if I'd had 120 minutes instead of 60?

Since this new slidedeck is also a "sorta summary" of The Excellence Dividend, I thought you might be interested.

Have at it, Columbus ENHANCED as of 6PM on 14 April 2018.

Note: WHILE I'VE BEEN ON BOOK TOUR—MOSTLY PODCASTS—I'VE BEEN ASKED OVER AND OVER TO EXPLAIN MY OBSESSION WITH THE "PEOPLE STUFF." I USUALLY ANSWER, SNIPPILY, "WELL WHAT THE HELL ELSE IS THERE? ORGANIZATIONS, NO MATTER HOW MUCH TECHNOLOGY THEY USE, ARE NO MORE AND NO LESS THAN 'PEOPLE SERVING PEOPLE.'" ON THIS TOPIC, CHECK OUT SLIDE #2, WHICH SAYS:

Given/Axiomatic …

(1)THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR NOT MAKING ANY ORGANIZATION OF ANY SIZE IN ANY BUSINESS A GREAT PLACE TO WORK.
(2) EVERY LEADER HAS A MORAL OBLIGATION CIRCA 2018 TO DEVELOP PEOPLE SO THAT WHEN THEY LEAVE THEY ARE BETTER PREPARED FOR TOMORROW THAN THEY WERE WHEN THEY ARRIVED.

Over to you ...
