Chitchat Trump the CEO President.
An honorable member of the Coffee Shop Has Just Posted the Following:
One of the things I will enjoy about the Trump presidency is watching non-business writers try to explain his methods. Case in point, the recent stories about Ford and Carrier keeping some parts of their manufacturing in the United States because Trump negotiated/bullied them into staying. If you tell that story through a political filter Ė which is all I have seen so far Ė you focus on the facts. In this case, the political story is that both the Ford and Carrier situations are exaggerated claims of success.
The political filter misses the story completely. As usual.
Hereís the real story. You need a business filter to see it clearly. In my corporate life I watched lots of new leaders replace old leaders. And there is one trick the good leaders do that bad leaders donít: They make some IMMEDIATE improvement that everyone can see. It has to be visible, relatively simple, and fast.
Because humans are not rational. Our first impressions rule our emotions forever. Trump has a second chance to make a first impression because his performance as President is fresh ground. Trump is attacking the job like a seasoned CEO, not like a politician. He knows that his entire four-year term will be judged by what happens before it even starts. What he does today will determine how much support and political capital he has for his entire term.
So what does a Master Persuader do when he needs to create a good first impression to last for years? He looks around for any opportunity that is visible, memorable, newsworthy, true to his brand, and easy to change.
Trump and Pence recognized these openings and took them. Political writers will interpret this situation as routine credit-grabbing and exaggerated claims. But business writers will recognize Trumpís strategy as what I will call the ďnew CEO Move.Ē Smart CEOs try to create visible victories within days of taking the job, to set the tone. Itís all about the psychology.
If you are looking at Trumpís claims of success with Ford and Carrier in terms of technical accuracy and impact on the economy, you will be underwhelmed. But if you view it through a business filter and understand that psychology is the point of the exercise, youíre seeing one of the best new CEO moves you will ever see.
Iíll say this again because itís important. Weíre all watching closely to see if President Elect Trump has the skill to be president. And while you watch, Trump and Pence are pulling off one of the most skillfully executed new CEO plays you will ever see. Remember what I taught you in the past year: Facts donít matter. What matters is how you feel. And when you watch Trump and Pence fight and scratch to keep jobs in this country, it changes how you will feel about them for their entire term. This is a big win for Trump/Pence disguised as a small win.
The political press will dismiss Ford and Carrier with fact-checking. But the stock market will be smarter. Experienced business people recognize the ďnew CEOĒ move and they know how powerful and important it is.
If you are worried about Trumpís talent for leadership, this should help set your mind at ease. He hasnít even started the job and heís already performing better than any past president in the same phase.
In related news, my girlfriend Kristina Basham lost her blue verification badge on Instagram yesterday without explanation. She has 2.2 million followers and there are dozens of fake accounts using her name and photos, so she is exactly the type of user who needs the account verification badge. Weíre left wondering if this sudden change is related to my writing about Trump.
You should be disturbed that there is no official way for me to know if this happened for technical reasons or because of some internal Instagram policy. This is a frightening lack of transparency for a social media company (Facebook/Instagram) that is so vital to business success that one could argue it should be regulated as a public utility.
The context here is that Iím already shadowbanned on Twitter for writing about Trump, and trolls have one-starred my book on Amazon.com for political reasons. Iíll keep you informed as I learn anything. But I probably wonít.
