rewarding lives or it's simply not worth
doing. Richard Branson

It is not enough for an agency to be respected
for its professional competence. Indeed, there
isnt much to choose between the competence of
big agencies. What so often makes the
difference is the character of the men and women
who represent the agency at the top level, with
clients and the business community. If they are
respected as admirable people, the agency gets
businesswhether from present clients or
prospective ones. David Ogilvy

The Memories That Matter.
11
The Memories
That Matter The people you developed who went on
to stellar accomplishments inside or outside
the company. The (no more than) two or three
people you developed who went on to create
stellar institutions of their own. The longshots
(people with a certain something) you bet on
who surprised themselvesand your peers. The
people of all stripes who 2/5/10/20 years
later say You made a difference in my life,
Your belief in me changed everything. The sort
of/character of people you hired in general. (And
the bad apples you chucked out despite some
stellar traits.) A handful of projects (a half
dozen at most) you doggedly pursued that
still make you smile and which fundamentally
changed the way things are done inside or
outside the company/industry. The supercharged
camaraderie of a handful of Great Teams aiming
to change the world.
12
The Memories
That Matter Belly laughs at some of the
stupid-insane things you and your mates
tried. Less than a closet full of I should have
A frighteningly consistent record of having
invariably said, Go for it! Not intervening in
the face of considerable lossrecognizing that
to develop top talent means tolerating
failures and allowing the person who screwed
up to work their own way through and out of
their self-created mess. Dealing with one or more
crises with particular/memorable
aplomb. Demanding CIVILITY regardless of
circumstances. Turning around one or two or so
truly dreadful situationsand watching almost
everyone involved rise to the occasion (often to
their own surprise) and acquire a renewed
sense of purpose in the process. Leaving
something behind of demonstrable-lasting worth.
(On short as well as long assignments.)
13
The Memories
That Matter Having almost always (99 of the
time) put Quality and Excellence ahead of
Quantity. (At times an unpopular approach.) A
few critical instances where you stopped short
and could have done morebut to have done
so would have compromised your and your
teams character and integrity. A sense of time
well and honorably spent. The expression of
simple human kindness and considerationno
matter how harried you may be/may have
been. Understood that your demeanor/expression of
character always set the toneespecially in
difficult situations. Never (rarely) let your
external expression of enthusiasm/
determination flagthe rougher the times, the
more your expressed energy and bedrock
optimism and sense of humor showed. The respect
of your peers. A stoic unwillingness to badmouth
otherseven in private.
14
The Memories
That Matter An invariant creed When something
goes amiss, The buck stops with me when
something goes right, it was their doing, not
yours. A Mandela-like naïve belief that others
will rise to the occasion if given the
opportunity. A reputation for eschewing the
trappings of power. (Strong self-
management of tendencies toward arrogance or
dismissiveness.) Intense, even driven but not
to the point of being careless of others in
the process of forging ahead. Willing time and
again to be surprised by ways of doing things
that are inconsistent with your certain
hypotheses. Humility in the face of others, at
every level, who know more than you about
the way things really are. Bit your tongue
on a thousand occasionsand listened, really
really listened. (And been constantly delighted
when, as a result, you invariably learned
something new and invariably increased your
connection with the speaker.)
15
The Memories
That Matter Unalloyed pleasure in being informed
of the fallaciousness of your beliefs by
someone 15 years your junior and several rungs
below you on the hierarchical ladder.
Selflessness. (A sterling reputation as a guy
always willing to help out with alacrity
despite personal cost.) As thoughtful and
respectful, or more so, toward thine enemies
as toward friends and supporters. Always and
relentlessly put at the top of your list/any
list being first and foremost of service to
your internal and external constituents.
(Employees/Peers/ Customers/Vendors/Community.)
Treated the term servant leadership as holy
writ. (And preached servant leadership to
othersnew non-managerial hire or old pro,
age 18 or 48.)
16
The Memories
That Matter Created the sort of workplaces youd
like your kids to inhabit. (Explicitly
conscious of this Would I want my kids to
work here? litmus test.) A certifiable nut
about quality and safety and integrity. (More or
less regardless of any costs.) A notable few
circumstances where you resigned rather than
compromise your bedrock beliefs. Perfectionism
just short of the paralyzing variety. A self- and
relentlessly enforced group standard of
EXCELLENCE-in-all-we-do/EXCELLENCE in our
behavior toward one another.

In a way, the world is a great liar. It shows
you it worships and admires money, but at the end
of the day it doesnt. It says it adores fame and
celebrity, but it doesnt, not really. The world
admires, and wants to hold on to, and not lose,
goodness. It admires virtue. At the end it gives
its greatest tributes to generosity, honesty,
courage, mercy, talents well used, talents that,
brought into the world, make it better. Thats
what it really admires. Thats what we talk about
in eulogies, because thats whats important. We
dont say, The thing about Joe was he was rich!
We say, if we can

We say, if we can The thing about Joe was

If the regimental commander lost most of his 2nd
lieutenants and 1st lieutenants and captains and
majors, it would be a tragedy. If he lost his
sergeants it would be a catastrophe. The Army and
the Navy are fully aware that success on the
battlefield is dependent to an extraordinary
degree on its Sergeants and Chief Petty Officers.
Does industry have the same awareness?

Employee retention satisfaction Overwhelmingly
based on the first-line manager!Source Marcus
Buckingham Curt Coffman, First, Break All the
Rules What the Worlds Greatest Managers Do

25
I am sure you spend time on this. My
question Is it an OBSESSION worthy of the
impact it has on enterprise performance?
26
E.g. Do you have the ... ABSOLUTE BEST
TRAINING PROGRAM IN THE INDUSTRY ... (or some
subset thereof) for first-line supervisors?
27
Suggested addition to your statement of Core
Values We are obsessed with developing a cadre
of 1st line managers that is second to nonewe
understand that this cadre per se is arguably one
of our top two or three most important Strategic
Assets.

Never waste a lunch!
32
Allied commands depend on mutual confidence and
this confidence is gained, above all through
the development of friendships. General
D.D. Eisenhower, Armchair General Perhaps
his most outstanding ability at West Point was
the ease with which he made friends and earned
the trust of fellow cadets who came from widely
varied backgrounds it was a quality that would
pay great dividends during his future coalition
command.

XFX Social Accelerators. 1.
EVERYONEs more or less JOB 1 Make friends in
other functions! (Purposefully. Consistently.
Measurably.) 2. Do lunch with people in other
functions!! Frequently!! (Minimum 10 to 25 for
everyone? Measured.) 3. Ask peers in other
functions for references so you can become
conversant in their world. (Its one helluva sign
of ... GIVE-A-DAMN-ism.) 4. Invite counterparts
in other functions to your team meetings.
Religiously. Ask them to present cool stuff
from their world to your group. (B-I-G deal
useful and respectful.) 5. PROACTIVELY SEEK
EXAMPLES OF TINY ACTS OF XFX TO
ACKNOWLEDGEPRIVATELY AND PUBLICLY. (Bosses ONCE
A DAY make a short call or visit or send an
email of Thanks for some sort of XFX gesture by
your folks and some other functions folks.) 6.
Present counterparts in other functions awards
for service to your group. Tiny awards at least
weekly and an Annual All-Star Supporters from
other groups Banquet modeled after superstar
salesperson banquets. 7. DiscussA SEPARATE
AGENDA ITEMgood and problematic acts of
cross-functional co-operation at every Team
Meeting.

XFX Social Accelerators. 8.
When someone in another function asks for
assistance, respond with more alacrity than
you would if it were the person in the cubicle
next to yoursor even more than you would for a
key external customer. (Remember, XFX is the key
to Customer Retention which is in turn the key to
all good things.) 9. Do not bad mouth ... the
damned accountants, the bloody HR guy. Ever.
(Bosses Severe penalties for thisincluding
public tongue-lashings.) 10. Get physical!!
Co-location may well be the most powerful
culture change lever. Physical X-functional
proximity is almost a guarantee of remarkably
improved co-operationto aid this one needs
flexible workspaces that can be mobilized for a
team in a flash. 11. Formal evaluations.
Everyone, starting with the receptionist, should
have a significant XF rating component in their
evaluation. (The XFX Performance should be
among the Top 3 items in all managers
evaluations.) 12. Demand XF experience for,
especially, senior jobs. For example, the U.S.
military requires all would-be generals and
admirals to have served a full tour in a job
whose only goals were cross-functional
achievements. 13. XFX is PERSONAL as well as
about organizational effectiveness. PXFX
Personal XFX is arguably the 1 Accelerant to
personal successin terms of organizational
career, freelancer/Brand You, or as an
entrepreneur.
41
Formal evaluations. Everyone, starting with the
receptionist, should have a significant XFX
rating component in their evaluation. (The XFX

The path to a hostmanship culture
paradoxically does not go through the guest. In
fact it wouldnt be totally wrong to say that the
guest has nothing to do with it. True hostmanship
leaders focus on their employees. What drives
exceptionalism is finding the right people and
getting them to love their work and see it as a
passion. ... The guest comes into the picture
only when you are ready to ask, Would you prefer
to stay at a hotel where the staff love their
work or where management has made customers its
highest priority? We went through the hotel
and made a ... consideration renovation.
Instead of redoing bathrooms, dining rooms, and
guest rooms, we gave employees new uniforms,
bought flowers and fruit, and changed colors. Our
focus was totally on the staff. They were the
ones we wanted to make happy. We wanted them to
wake up every morning excited about a new day at
work. Source Jan Gunnarsson and Olle Blohm,

There is a misconception that supportive
interactions require more staff or more time and
are therefore more costly. Although labor costs
are a substantial part of any hospital budget,
the interactions themselves add nothing to the
budget. Kindness is free. Listening to patients
or answering their questions costs nothing. It
can be argued that negative interactionsalienatin
g patients, being non-responsive to their needs
or limiting their sense of controlcan be very
costly. Angry, frustrated or frightened

  • Women now drive the global economy. Globally,
    they control about 20 trillion in consumer
    spending, and that figure could climb as high as
    28 trillion in the next five years. Their 13
    trillion in total yearly earnings could reach 18
    trillion in the same period. In aggregate, women
    represent a growth market bigger than China and

    Given those numbers, it would be foolish to

One thing is certain Womens rise to power,
which is linked to the increase in wealth per
capita, is happening in all domains and at all
levels of society. Women are no longer content to
provide efficient labor or to be consumers with
rising budgets and more autonomy to spend.
This is just the beginning. The phenomenon will
only grow as girls prove to be more successful
than boys in the school system. For a number of
observers, we have already entered the age of
womenomics, the economy as thought out and
