BASICS

Fri, 18 Mar 2016 20:47:18 +0000

Wee tweetstream last week: Profit is good stuff. But never forget it's DERIVATIVE. Horse that draws the cart is excellent work/fabulous people/great relationships. Don't get sucked into "scalable." First you need something fabulous/road-tested to scale. Don't get sucked in by "unicornism." Odds of becoming a unicorn same as winning the lottery. Just do great work. […]

“Best Slides”/PDF Doc

Tue, 23 Feb 2016 15:12:36 +0000

My monster PP collection—THE WORKS/1966–2016 at excellencenow.com—ends with an Appendix of "Best Slides," about 200 thereof. Since that appendix is in a way a summary, I decided to convert it to a PDF document. You will find that document below. It ended up being 49 pages long, encompassing about 13,000 words of text. I have […]

THE WORKS 1966-2015: Overriding Logic

Mon, 30 Nov 2015 12:00:24 +0000

This—circa November 2015—is my best shot. It's "THE WORKS." Some half-century in the making (from 1966, Vietnam, U.S. Navy ensign, combat engineer/Navy Seabees—my first "management" job); but also the product of a massive program of self-directed study in the last 36 months. It includes, in effect, a 250-page book's worth—50,000++ words—of annotation. The times are […]

Working the Room

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 08:40:23 +0000

The key to engaging an audience is to make a human connection. Tom explains exactly how he does this in a conversation with colleague Shelley Dolley in the latest in our Off the Cuff video series. You can find the video at YouTube (time: 2 minutes 57 seconds).

Tailoring Speeches

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 10:00:45 +0000

Longtime member of Tom Peters' staff Shelley Dolley posed questions to Tom that she frequently gets asked by other business speakers. Many crave insights into Tom's tricks of the trade. As part of our Off the Cuff series of videos, Tom tells us what the keys to successful speaking are. In this video, he shares […]

In Defense of PowerPointA BookNot a “Book”

Wed, 15 Jul 2015 12:42:40 +0000

I am about to unleash a book on you. A book—not a "book." Said book (not "book") is in PowerPoint. 100%. My colleagues insist that not everybody is like me. Not everybody dotes on PowerPoint. Damn. I mainly give speeches. My speeches are based on PowerPoint presentations. Fact: I "do" PowerPoint. Fact: I "am" PowerPoint. […]

Training = Investment #1

Wed, 03 Sep 2014 21:30:21 +0000

I have ratcheted the volume WAAAAAAY up re training. I unloaded on the topic last week at Indiana HR in Indianapolis. I have subsequently upgraded a document titled "Training: Investment #1." All yours ... [Ed. And, there's an update to Excellence. NO EXCUSES! to reflect the changes to the training piece.]

A Few Quotes …

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 15:36:18 +0000

Call me a "motivational speaker"—and I'll be tempted to punch you. On the other hand, I have collected a passel of "inspiring" quotes over the years. I put this little set together for a colleague. All yours … "This is the true joy of Life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as […]

Excellence. NO EXCUSES! Update

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 00:58:46 +0000

Tom has continued to tinker with his now super-sized document, Excellence. NO EXCUSES! He asked the opinion of his Twitter followers, and they approved the addition of "Moral Bedrock of Management," available here. It is now item number 6 in this latest version of Excellence. NO EXCUSES! We encourage you to download it, or one […]

Herein a 737-page “Freebie”:EXCELLENCE. NO EXCUSES.74 Ways to Launch Your Journey. Now. (And Then There’s Also “MOAP”)

Fri, 30 May 2014 13:41:27 +0000

Last October I wandered across a little item on the topic of "overcoming resistance to change." As happens in life, that phrase turned out to be the innocent trigger for a 9-month exercise which has resulted in the 100K-word, 737-page "collection" presented herewith. "Resistance to change" conjures up images of "battles" and "conflict" and "winners" […]
