From the top down, everyone in your organization requires a periodic, if not daily, a reminder of vision, opportunity, and hope. Do you need to complete something more than once? Can you automate, delegate, get rid of, or hire someone to do it? Make sure you're assuming your queen bee role so your organization will prosper and flourish due to your laser-like focus on the right things. Using the after-action report, you can get your team ready for success. By receiving a hot wash, emotional feedback, acting on what you've learned, and rational feedback.   Remarkable Quotes: Otis:  Driving purpose is about finding clarity and resolve and your purpose. Otis: Don't try to sell hope of solving the problem; sell the hope of the organization. That's how you keep people.   Travis: It's a lot easier to get through the suck if it's a time limit. Otis:   Push through with a vision and hope; and the reality, so you balance the hope with the reality. Travis:  Are they creating a business, or are they creating a job for themselves?   Highlights: {01:33} Introduction to Otis {05:35} Ground Pounding {12:45} Is your mission missing in your Business or nonprofit  {19:15} Embrace the Suck {26:40} The difference between starting a business and creating a job {33:15} The Queen Bee Role {41:00} Learning from your experiences   Otis McGregor bio: Leadership Expert, Author, Speaker, Podcast Host, Project Management Trainer, Rugby Coach, LTC, Special Forces, US Army, Retired My passion lies in helping people succeed.
