Episode 188: The ONE Thing for Teams (Part 1)

It’s relatively easy for an individual to start practicing The ONE Thing in their daily lives… but how do you scale The ONE Thing throughout an organization?

Behind the scenes, we’ve been asking ourselves this question, and we’ve been working hard to come up with an answer that will help all teams, from a local real estate office all the way up to a Fortune 50 company, make living The ONE Thing part of their organizational culture.

Geoff Woods and Jay Papasan recently delivered a keynote presentation at the Keller Williams Family Reunion Convention, and today we’re going to share the first half of that presentation with all of you. Geoff and Jay walk you through the high-level principles you need to know before you introduce The ONE Thing to your team and what the benefits are when you begin to adopt this in your culture. Next week, in part two, we’ll discuss how leaders within an organization can begin to use the specific tools of The ONE Thing to not only live the principles yourself, but spread them with their teams.
