For those of you unfamiliar with the organization, Children’s Mercy is one of the most amazing children’s hospitals throughout the Midwest.  I absolutely love having their services available in our region and it would definitely cause me to reconsider any move outside of the area. 

The Threes

Before the threes, Jake shared his tips for getting your teams excited about your content.  The tips he gave were to make the content meaningful, easy, and memorable.  Such great content and you have to listen to all the stories he shares along with those topics.

I put Jake on his toes and had him extend his threes during the show and had him offer tips for getting teams involved with content:

  • Make it Personal – Don’t make it a requirement, but find a way to have your team share those stories you are all passionate about.
  • Find the Character – Look for stories beyond your rock stars and your executives.  There are amazing stories all around.
  • Weave It Into the Community – Embrace your local community, they can be a huge advocate for you and your brand.
