Event Recap: The Rockefeller Habits With Jim Alampi


 Rockefeller SS

Earlier this month, Red Door Interactive’s Denver and San Diego offices held events in its ongoing speaker series featuring author and professional development coach Jim Alampi.  Known as the “Execution Maximizer, “Jim presented the “Rockefeller Habits” which are simple and practical habits that if implemented correctly, can help overcome the growth barriers that most businesses face. Red Door Interactive is a proud advocate of “The Rockefeller Habits” and credits them for their appearances on the Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Companies list and nine consecutive appearances on the San Diego Business Journal’s Fastest Growing list. Jim began his presentation by saying, “Vision without execution is hallucination!”- a thought provoking comment that invited attendees to think about their daily work habits. The good news is that the Rockefeller Habits are easy to adopt: 1. Set the critical few priorities 2. Create a structured team meeting rhythm 3. Use data driven metrics to create accountability and remain focused Here are some of the highlights and recommendations from Jim’s inspiriting presentation:
  • “There is no point in having priorities if there is no accountability. Otherwise you will never obtain your goals.”
    • To achieve success and overcome growth barriers, priorities must be set on a company level and then at an employee level.
  • “Tactical and strategic discussions shouldn’t mix. The brain can’t comprehend both- schedule them at different times. “
    • Also, companies that are really good at executing their long-term vision do it in 90-day tactical, bite size pieces, rather than 10-15 year strategic plan.
  • “Businesses should have a daily huddle. 15 minutes could get your team on the same page & lessen "stupid mistakes.”
    • A daily huddle agenda should be limited to finding out what’s up with employees and customers to find out who needs help and who can help each other.
  • "Sleep Well on Friday Numbers" - the 2 metrics for your business that, if they're doing well, you can sleep well.
    • Smart numbers offer a look forward to the future. For example, a construction company can use birth rates as a smart number to determine whether to expect an increase or decrease in single family new home construction over time.
  • “Great companies know when to quickly say, "no."
    • Sometimes your resources don't allow you to take everything on and the best answer is to just say no.
Thank you all for your attendance and we hope to see you at our next Speaker Series
