BE DiFFERENT or be dead Blog

What’s your BE DiFFERENT IQ?
I have often said there is no Silver Bullet to BE DiFFERENT. No single thing you can do that will vault you to a relevant and unique VALUE provider. No one act that will bring you into focus and separate you from the Faceless Herd.
The BE DiFFERENT journey, rather, is about doing a lot of the right things. The LITTLE things that are really “uncommon sense” (if it were common sense you would think more organizations would be doing them!)
My work is pretty basic. Simple. Uncommon sense. I have discovered and successfully implemented Practices that DO propel an organization to make a GaSPWORTHY and commanding competitive position in their markets.
People come up to me after a Seminar or Workshop and comment how straightforward my stuff is and how refreshing it is to have a Business Leader like me get down to ground zero tactics that actually work.
Makes my day.
What is your IQ on the things that need to be out in place to BE DiFFERENT?
Take my QUIZ to learn where you think you are on the Journey. 40 Questions dealing with key Practices that define the Milestones along the way. An opportunity to sort out where to focus your priority to expedite your progress.
The QUIZ promotes honesty. Take in a private place where “no one is watching”. Be brutal with your answers. Only then will you be able to make productive moves.
Take the QUIZ with your team. Use the process to build a broader honest view of where you are. And be prepared for team spirit to soar.
Just do it - Begin - Stay focused - Execute - Endure the pain - Enjoy the success - Reap the rewards.
