Leaving a Lasting Impression

A Customer Experience Lesson

Hello Outperformer, Last week I spoke at Mystic Lake Casino for a group of senior managers on creating an Outperforming customer experience. In the presentation I shared two stories that have happened to me in the last week: One was a simple technical “snafoo” with my CRM and trying to get it to sync with…

When Things Don’t Go as Planned…

Scott Welle Expect the Unexpected

Dear Outperformer, This isn’t the post I thought I’d be writing. Last week I talked about demanding more of yourself and this crazy Grand Canyon run I was going to do. I figured today would be a continuation of a similar theme of never stopping, even when things get hard, until you’ve achieved your goal. I…

7 Surprising Benefits of…?

Laugh More

Dear Outperformer, In 1969 my Dad won a national championship playing football for the NDSU Bison. Over the last few years, it has become a cool father-son tradition for us to meet up and watch at least a couple games together (it gives him a chance to relive the “glory days.”) I can tell he…

A Curious Case of Leadership

Be curious Scott Welle

Hello Outperformer, On Tuesday I spoke for a great group of Project Managers in Milwaukee. My presentation was part being your best; part getting the best out of others. In addition to speaking, I was selfishly looking forward to hearing the closing keynote by Bo Ryan. Unless you live in Wisconsin or are a college basketball fan,…

My favorite quote of all time is by former University of Alabama football coach, Paul “Bear” Bryant, and it’s simply what I call “The Price Of Admission.” It goes like this: “Winning is not normal, and people who constantly win do so by following an abnormal path. The discipline, dedication and sacrifices are incomprehensible to…

Want to Slow Down Time? Do This.

Have fun take risks love people

Hi Outperformer, I don’t spend a lot of time on Facebook but one of the things I find most interesting are the “memories.” If you’re unfamiliar, it’s an alert that tells you what you did on this day in other years of your life. For Sept 8th, I got three alerts: Last year I spoke…

THIS Comes Before Results…

To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift

Hello Outperformers, Our Outperforming movement is about paying tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. I’m so unoriginal. That is the wikipedia definition of Labor Day 🙂 I’ve always believed that to be the best for your community, company, or country, it starts with showing up…

Do Your Talking in the “Ring”

Scott Welle Outperform The Norm

Hello Outperformers, Our Outperforming movement is about serving others and leading them to Outperform…the RIGHT way. Ralph Waldo Emerson famously said: “Your actions speak so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.” Somewhere he’s rolling in his grave. I’m not a boxing or MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) fan but there’s a huge fight going…
