"Red" Scott's Business Cardinals
As he reminded his listeners most were memorialized as a result of mistakes, errors of judgment and/or unfortunate experiences.
When Red would speak to TEC/Vistage groups, he reminded those attending that he came to learn 3 things from those listening to his "Pearls from Paris (TX) or Coyote Culture presentations. When he would learn something from the group, he would stop, take a red felt tipped pen and place a start on the person's table tent.
I am pleased to say that I was one of those individuals. It was sharing that the word "enthusiasm" comes from the Greek "en theos" or "the god within." When the Greeks saw someone with a passion for whatever whatever moved them, they said " the god within him burns."
Gustavo Grodnitzky presented his topic "The Future of the Workforce -- Ready or not, here they come!" to over 200 delegates at etc. Venues, London on Friday,...
Gustavo Grodnitzky has become a good friend. His work on the Millenials, the Gen Y gives a great perspective of how we need to work in the cross-generational workforce.
You may want to look at The Fourth Turning about the 4 generational types in 4 eras for the past 500 years. An interesting perspective.

His Philosophy: "Environment is a more powerful determinant of behavior than is personality. This is evidenced in both clinical studies and everyday experience"
"Our environment teaches us what we can and can not do. Yet each of us has the ability to change our environment by choosing certain actions over others and fine-tuning our interactions with others. Leaders and organizational teams that learn how to create successful environments naturally become more effective and more successful. They also become stronger assets for their corporations. They perform better, are more satisfied with their jobs, and they’re happier. As a result, their company experiences better growth, stability and profitability."
A Leader, A Blue Vaser, A Storyteller Extraordinaire. This was written almost 5 years ago to honor Red Scott who touched my life and the life of so many.
A dear friend, teacher, mentor, and leader has died. Red Scott's legacy will live on for many generations to come.
Red, like Pat Hyndman, gave all though their lives and will continue to give for many generations by the legacy they have left behind. Red was the consumate: green and growing. Always learning. Always having a story to put it in a way that would get the point across and yet having Texas humor.
His message to us came in December:

Dear Family and Friends:
Red's Cardinals http://bit.ly/14eR0Mv
Stories were a very important part of my leadership style at the many companies which I was either the Chairman, The President or the CEO.
I tried to give each manager or executive who reports directly to me:
1) a copy of “The Go Getter” booklet by Peter Kyne
2) a copy of the Abilene Paradox by Jerry Harvey
Check out the Abilene DVD at CRM Learning
3) a copy of my speech on the 8 Success Traits
As a result – a part of our short hand language or style became such comments:Is he/she lucky?Is he/she a Go Getter?Are we about to take a trip to Abilene?Is it clear to you that this project is a “blue vaser?”
Hope this helps. Best regards. Red
Red Scott has been an inspiration to thousands of individuals. His insights and wisdom delivered in a folksy and humorous way through his many stories have taught lessons that need to be taught.
I am pleased to be among those whose livws he has touched.
His life is and has been about being a Blue-Vaser.
