Mindset And Blind Spots With Jarrod Haning
"Nama stay an welcome to live. Love engage. I am gloria grace rand and today. We're we're gonna be talking about breakthroughs and business hand. Let me let me explain what i mean by that a little bit. So you know how when you're in a corn maze and you're not sure if you should go left or right but when you step on a ladder. Suddenly the maze is no longer a mystery. Well that's what my guest at jared. Haning does for business owners by teaching them how to think at a higher level they are able to see the whole picture and suddenly obstacles that were blocking the growth no longer exist and everything he teaches comes onto this one thing a breakthrough in your business. Will i happen as a breakthrough in your thinking. Which i've loved so welcome jared to live. Love engage thanks for having me. I appreciate Having you here and let me just tell you a little bit more about This gentleman because He is an award winning speaker. And i can attest to this. Because i watched one of his fedex. Talks was very impressed with it. It's related to mindset performance. But he's also been on. Abc's nightline spoke on stage all across the country. He's got clients around the world. He's also been chosen by ted global as a featured speaker of the week and what makes him unique that he specializes in a nobel nominated process. That teaches you how to get a higher level and allows you to access different parts of your brain on demand. And as a result his most of his clients gone to double their income by purposely. Working half as many hours. And who doesn't wanna do that. You know offense not enough. He's also a classically trained musician Which is also equipped him with a unique set of tools for leveling up your leadership and when he's not doing that well except for during corona virus days. I guess you'd normally find him. Or maybe he has been still flying skydiving or mountain bike riding. And i love this. This is really fun. is that his. He says his most prized accomplishment was winning. The world tickle championship in the five-year-old category. So you have to explain that. actually. I real quick. Come on Okay told that is a fictitious title coming up and gave to myself. Well i like it. I only have one kid. And he's no longer five now ten so so so basically the the championship was at home. Is that you will vary call many years ago. Why like that i. I think that's awesome. So let's let's talk a little bit now about this You know the having a breakthrough in your business in part of this one of the things that you claim is that by normally. We are so focused on getting things done that that actually kills your productivity and and checking things off the to do list which i must confess. I do like doing that from time to time Is that it actually lowers your income. So why do you say that. So productivity is not about getting things done it's actually about causing things to be done When you check something off your to do list you don't solve the problem of why it had to be done to start with. And if you're the one doing the work well you're going to be the one doing the work again tomorrow And that is a bad strategy and we just can't solve with stubbornness even epic. Olympic levels of stubbornness cannot fix that bad strategy. So one of the reasons that trying harder Doesn't move the ball forward It doesn't work. It actually just masks. The problem is because trying harder working harder working smarter even this. These are just themes on a variation more of the same trying to work. Smarter is just coming up with more of the kinds of ideas that already make sense and those are the kinds of ideas that have you stuck to start with a working harder. Just as doing more of the activities that already makes sense to do and like i mentioned earlier When you check something off your list if it doesn't address what caused the demand to start with. You didn't fix the problem and no matter what you're doing in that block of time. No matter how good you are at it. There's twenty seven other things that aren't getting done and so this is just really sophisticated. Spinning your wheels

America's messy Covid-19 vaccine rollout
"Americans have died of covert 19 and one year that's 100,000 more than the number that died in combat in World War two and double that of both sides in combat in the Civil War. But even though the death toll rises daily, there is now hope with a couple of vaccines approved in more of the way and that hope there is also despair. Many Americans haven't been able to get vaccines information about where and when to get them has been haphazard and confusing. Many hearing about reactions that summer getting to a second shot or not showing up for it. And the total number of Americans planning according to polls and getting vaccinated seems to be way below the numbers needed for anything we can call herd immunity. So where are we? Joining us this vaccine researcher Dr Peter Hotez, founding dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine, professor of pediatrics and molecular virology and microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine, where he's also director of the Texas Children's Hospital Center for Vaccine Development, and also the author of Preventing the Next Pandemic. Vaccine diplomacy and a time of anti science. It's good to talk to you again. You know. Last week we talked to a doctor who said we had a vaccine plan, But we did not have a vaccination plan is that the way it's playing out? Well, yeah, I mean, I think it's we're not realizing operation Warp speed is was first and foremost the development program and to take the decade or so of covert 19 research, coronaviruses research and Unidentified. The spike Protein is the soft target of the virus and come up with ways to deliver the spike protein by working with the pharma companies, and that's nest standpoint, I think it was very successful. The problem was, I think, you know when you heard about the four star military general, on top of that there was this. A lot of the American people thought that that meant bringing in the military and the National Guard and there was a plant also deliver the vaccinations, and it turns out that was never the case by logistics of men. Putting the boxes in the back of the FedEx trucks and the U. P s trucks making certainly kept cold and there was no temperature incursions, and it was off to the states and then was adios. And and so once again, it was this policy of the Trump Administration. That the states had to be in the lead for everything. And this is why we failed so catastrophically in 2020, and now we're 400,000 Americans have lost their lives because the states never had the capacity to Monaco. Vin 19 response. It's why we missed The entry of the virus coming in from Southern Europe into New York. It's why we never really got diagnostic testing, widely disseminated and use its why we missed the entry of the Vira of the virus into the southern states in the summer, and the Midwestern states in the fall and Why we never got genomic sequencing underway is just failure after failure, and now this under the current. If we kept on with the Trump administration, it would have been along the same lines. We would have puttered along slowly. Getting vaccinations into people's arms. Um as this virus continues to mutate and become more transmissible, so by at least now the plan is to have some kind of national vaccination strategy in place. Through a partnership between the federal government and the states. And this has to be the top priority because we're in a race now with daily deaths. Well, let's talk about that. President Biden wants to achieve 100 million vaccinations in 100 days That would be about triple the rate of where we are now. We do that? Well, I look at it a little different way. I mean, seem probably the same result, but a little bit different way of thinking about the numbers. We have to vaccinate 240 million people. Americans by By the end of the summer in order to halt virus transmission, according to our estimates that we did with a group of City University of New York and if most of the vaccines or two doses two times, you know 240 million people are looking at half a billion immunizations. We have to do half a billion immunizations between now and the end of the summer and S so far we've vaccinated by 10 to 15 million people, which, when you divide by half a billion, you realize is rounding error. So for all practical purposes, we've not even started yet. We have not even begun our national vaccination program so The challenge is how do you get from zero to half a billion in our 00.1 toe half a billion in a very small period of time. And that is that is the challenge and wrote a piece in the Washington Post last week, which kind of outline the 45 things that I think has to happen. And in order to make that a reality. Yeah, but

Phd is founder and director of the center for stress. Anxiety management a multi site outpatient clinic in san diego california. She specializes in acceptance and commitment therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy for anxiety and related issues. She lives in san diego with her husband to kids and two french bulldogs. Welcome to anxiety slayer jill i shan. Thank you so much for having me so happy to be here. It's a pleasure. And congratulations on the success of your latest book. Be mighty what a fabulous book. And i know that you reached out to us quite some time ago to to get on and i'm and i'm glad you're here. It took us a little while but were here in. Your book is still out there and doing so well. So many great reviews. Yes and actually. It's great timing because the book just past her first birthday. Yeah be a celebration of about a year ago. I had the pleasure of speaking with dr steven hayes and he told me that that time that he pioneered act to help people with mental health issues feel fully think freely and live lives that reflect the qualities they choose and i'd like to begin our conversation with you sharing with us. How act can support women who often struggle with anxiety. Health things -iety in anxiety attacks. Yeah well act is a little different from some of the traditional ways. We go about attacking anxiety in that. The main goal of act is about developing psychological flexibility. And so this is really tuning in to the life you want and the person you want to be and showing up in doing what matters no matter what so. We often get caught in a trap where we do this waiting until thing you know like oh you know maybe i have a huge dream so i'll give you a personal example. I had a really big dream of doing a fedex. Talk one day and an opportunity arose to be able to do that. And i was terrified. I mean can feel my anxiety rising right now just talking about what we often do is say well i just i just need a little more expertise and i just need a little more practice and once i get my anxiety under control and i feel more confident and less insecure. Then i'll go ahead and do this. And what act is all about is becoming an observer of all those thoughts and feelings that we often get really hooked by and sort of we allow those thoughts and feelings to dictate our choices rather than letting what's important to us lead the way. The thing about doing what matters is it's going to come with anxiety because if it didn't matter you wouldn't care. Oh so well said. I used to do a lot of speaking an moved away from it moved into other areas of interest. But oh my goodness the number i would do on myself before speaking and i was very good very well prepared new speaking about once you got me on stage there is no turning me off. You couldn't shut me up right. But what i put myself through before it was something else and over time over practice and everything that lightened up but there was still that My my speaking coach would say try and take that anxiety and turn it into excitement and some days. I could do that and other days. It was just a matter of forcing myself really to just do it right. And and i think you know the all gets a little bit confusing for human beings because sometimes when we feel panicky when we feel fear it's because we're endanger our body is saying you need to fight or flee if you're going to be safe but sometimes were having those feelings and it's you know it's a false alarm. It's a perception of danger when it's not really dangerous or what it is it's a quote unquote social danger that you know when you're public speaking you care that people think your competence and interesting that you have something of value to deliver and you think evolutionary early early humans weedon have fangs or clause or we didn't run fast. We had each other where social beings early humans who hunted and gathered and travelled together had a survival advantage so to constantly be checking your status in the group to make sure you know. Am i doing my part. Am i valued or am. I gonna get kicked out because if i get kicked out i'm dead and so we've really evolved to be creatures who compare ourselves to others and of course. Social media has made that far greater than it was ever intended to be. But it's this very normal natural thing we do to care what others think so that we don't risk getting booted from our tribe and so sometimes when fear and anxiety and panic and all that arise. It's not a sign that we need to go run and hide run to safety run to the comforts on. It's a sign that we really care about this thing that we're doing and when you're laying in bed at night and you can't sleep and the wheels are spinning in its to mayhem. You're not worrying about whether netflix's is going to go out of business. That's not what keeps you up at night. What are wheelspin over. As our family our loved ones our jobs the things that really matter the most to us and so part of act is really recognizing that our pain. Barring society is not the enemy. It's everything were doing to move away from it
Alibaba founder Jack Ma is lying low for the time being, but he's not missing
"Stock just jumped five percent yesterday on word. Their ceo is not dead. Wow this year. The huge fundamental difference of doing business in china versus the united states. All right so jacqueline. You're talking here about the other jack jack. Ma former teacher present billionaire current location. Jack of jack ma. The former english teacher jack ma. He is a hard worker seventeen miles a day on a bike uphill to learn english. Both ways he also applied for job at kfc twenty three other people and he was the only one who didn't get the job. So what we're saying is jack. Ma falls off his bike. He gets back on the bike and then he founded alibaba twenty one years ago and that became the amazon of china. Now we mentioned jack mas hard working he actually evangelize is the nine nine six workweek which is nine. Am tonight pm. Six days a week for a total of seventy two hours and sounds absolutely awful opposite of the four day workweek way. Bigger the four day workweek knackers today. You could argue. That alibaba is more innovative. Then america's amazon. Yeah it's basically it's google. It's amazon it's fedex. It's pay pal all that rolled into one with a nice bow on an app alibaba stock however is down thirty percents since october on some really bizarre and kind of scary news all right. So this one's kind of strange. It all started back in october. When ant financial a different company the pay pal of china was prepping for the biggest. Ipo effort alibaba under the leadership of jack ma. They invested early in aunt group because they saw the need for digital payments in the ecommerce future so alibaba owned thirty percent of aunt. So anti peo- was going to be a big payday for alibaba. therefore jack ma. that's because aunt has one billion customers. They offer every financial service imaginable. He has eight. It's pretty much like the pizza hut buffet for fintechs picture. The little kale in between all the cottage is when jack ma made a fatal mistake he criticized. The chinese. Government does knackers in the us. You perfectly are allowed to criticize the government. Actually do it all the time. Even though you're not a huge fan of the damage that's okay not everyone's a fan of the dam and you're allowed to complain about the dmv because you are protected by the first amendment of the constitution freedom of speech though not a write in china. That's why it was a big deal in october. When jack ma at a conference during a speech criticized chinese regulators for stifling tech innovation with outdated regulation get this is the result the ant. Ipo that huge biggest ipo ever. It was blocked by authorities. And they called in jack ma for questioning they wanted to make an example of him speaking out against china so they actually ordered group to return to their payment origins. Because of what. Jack ma set and jack ma hasn't been seen in public since then and for good measure. The chinese government decided to launch an antitrust investigation against alibaba. After jack ma said what he said. Oh it's drop alibaba stock mar- oh and by the way w just told cnbc. Jack ma is alive. He's just laying low right now keeping a low profile. We're glad to hear that he's alive. But it's a little strange for a stock to jump because he's alive fleet

I was in the weird transition area where the atp was being required by the by the regional airlines to get hired. But it what you didn't have to do the atp p. course so i ended up being able to do my atp on my own without having to the course but you still have to have the fifteen hundred hours so kind of an awkward phase.

Our ceo and president was retiring and so i had an opportunity to be appointed to the ceo and president role in january and started <hes>. Leading very methodically through the first ninety days and then covert nineteen hit and so that was the first crisis that i began to lead through in my first ninety days and then shortly after that the death of george floyd really brought a platform to talk through the racial injustice that we were seeing in the country and again leading the organisation through that difficult time so eight months into my new role. And i feel like. I've learned a lot and really thankful for the team. I have that has supported me throughout the timeframe. And i'm sure that's exactly what you thought the first eight months and specifically the first ninety days we're going to hold. What is something that people would be surprised to know about. You are something that we can't google or find on your lincoln. So i think if you know me. It's pretty clear what. I would how i would answer this question. But for people who don't know me and if you would google me you won't be able to find it. I am a big foodie. I've loved to eat. I come from a family where we use food as a way to socialize entertain. It is to manage our feelings whether they're happy sad or whatever the case may be so. I enjoy food. I enjoy eating as well as a little cooking. But for the most part it's the eating and sampling. New things that i enjoy.
"fedex" Discussed on MarketFoolery
"I must, it has to write. It has to raise expectations for three months, but I think generally speaking. I've said it before I'll say it again. Logistics is a very hard business, so Fedex's competing in a space that is A. Challenging best an increasingly challenging given the time that we are currently operating it with global pandemic, and so they actually mentioned about one hundred twenty five million dollar increase in cost was directly related to personal protective equipment and. Medical and safety supplies as well as additional security cleaning services so expect. Operating expenses to be. Sort of. Ramping back to what they were before this so in the full fiscal year, the operating margin actually declined from six point four percent last year to three and a half percent in this year again, not fully due to cove it, but I just think they're working with a lot of. Headwinds that I think are going to be very difficult to moderate in the future. Well in one more complicating factor that Fedex has to deal with when it comes to getting packages from point, a to point B is all of the investments that Walmart and target in particular have made over the last three months. To enable people to pick stuff up to enable that curbside delivery so that it is seamless and as smooth as possible. You know that's great for target and Walmart and they're doing the right thing for themselves and for their customers, but. Everything that gets picked up is one more thing that's not going to be shipped. I. Mean it's an interesting sort of. Quandary that they're in because so chiens strategic focuses right now are to manage network capacity to line with volumes in conditions as well as remaining focused on sort of that last mile on. So that is. What we're talking about when you talk about residential deliveries, and I think it's important to note you know those residential deliveries while they are driving the increase in volumes particularly in this last quarter. They do require incremental cost to serve right so that last mile is actually the most expensive to do just given. The book logistics of it so it'll be an interesting dynamic to see how this plays out going forward specifically in the margins for them. Let's stick with. At least part of a Fedex is realm and I'm referring to the airlines because United Airlines up with some news today they're planning to add twenty five thousand flights in August. This is another one that's going to be interesting to watch how it plays out because this also comes at a time where. United is boosting that capacity for. Forty eight weeks from now, but they were also quick to point out that they've seen a flattening of demand over the past week as Covid, nineteen cases rise here in the US. But for the moment anyway, just judging these two announcements by the movement of the stock, the boosting capacity in August appears to be winning out because shares of United Airlines up about three percent this morning. Yeah, it's a this is another industry man I am. I am not envious of the role that all of these executives player united here so. They're domestic schedule is now at about forty eight percent of the prior year's levels forty percent if you include international flights. And I think this ramping up challenge ramping back up to what was previously offered a sort of. It's GonNa be interesting to watch particularly across the competitive landscape..
"fedex" Discussed on Social Pros Podcast
"We are seeing much heavier in a faster growth in the instagram conversation In the number of times that were mentioned on that platform People using that direct message function same with Facebook Messenger. I think the conversation has really shifted from a people posting on our wall to people sending US messages on Facebook Messenger but by far instagram has been has seen the most growth in recent days there was also a shift whenever twitter switched their platform from a social media platform in the APP store to a news platform in the APP store. We I think that's what we saw a big shift in the conversation there because we were still really heavily mentioned on twitter especially for customer service reasons. I know there's a ton of people who only have twitter accounts for customer service complaints. Like that's the only reason they ever use it. So we see our share of those But we see way more news on twitter now than we have in the past so I would say. Twitter has shifted therapy. Because it's more newsy. It's more what's happening right now. Versus that traditional customer service is what I had for lunch type of platform that was previously so obviously with social chatter. You as you had mentioned. There's some things you have to deal with customer complaints. Obviously you mentioned you know doorbell videos and things like that. But there's also a lot of good chatter happening to and you're T- recently just did a huge campaign highlighting some of these really amazing sort of Going the extra mile and doing the extra effort type of things. Tell us about this this amazing campaign that you did. Yes oh I could talk about this in my sleep. Okay so this is made possible by so I'm going to start from the very beginning Several years ago we started finding these types of posts on social media and sharing them without tying them into a campaign. We had team members who were literally save people's lives. They would get out of their truck and they would go rescue people from a burning car or they help people when they saw a wreck on the side of the road or they would jump into a pond to save somebody from submerging car which I mean actual stories these stories morphed into a mini campaign that we call delivering thinks. And so we would say we're delivering things to Eric for rescuing somebody from a a car wreck Whatever it might be And these posters took off. I mean they were. They were the best performing pieces of content. That we have ever seen in the history of Fedex. Ever hands down I'm talking you know we used to have a few hundred likes on average on post and as soon as we started sharing this content organically We would have thousand thousands and then we would. Obviously we could use pay boost post that were preferring well and we would see hundreds of thousands of lights on these types of it was it was incredible to see them take off like wildfire and we knew we had something. So we continue that delivering Delivering thanks campaign for a few years. And this last year in June of Twenty nineteen. We worked with the new agency and we really were tasked with the this. I guess the assignment was. How do we take this campaign? And how do we talk about our team members in a way? That's going to become more engaging that is bigger it's tied to our our. We have a purpose. That's connecting people impossibilities around the world. So what can we do to happen to that and to make this bigger so the made possible by campaign was born and what we did was found stories which I mean when you have four hundred ninety thousand team members around the world these stories will come pouring into you But we found team members. Were doing wonderful things whether it's saving people that are in life threatening positions or if they are rescuing puppies or Trying to help somebody get surgery because they There's a hole. The first the first story there was about a person Jamaica who helped a child get the surgery that he needed through this program that Fedex had sponsored and he went through so many jump through so many hoops to make it happen in the able to get a surgery and there was all because of this team member who went the extra mile for them so we highlighted him to kick it off And these stories are they. They're so great internally and externally so internally at Fedex we have. We've got so many team members that are on our facebook page and they're seeing our social media content and they are active. They are commenting on this. This content as well so Some of the stories that we post on facebook for example they highlight couriers. Who are also on facebook and the couriers will get in there and start saying like thank you so much for highly me or I show sharing my story and people will start talking to the courier and the comments and it just you know it. It gets really cool to see how it conversation plays out so culturally. I think our our team members can see themselves in these stories and it just really helps to create a just paint them in a positive light Because so much of what you see on social media is negative. It's about people complaining. And this really helps. Combat that and and elevate our team members to showcase the ones that are doing good things for the community and when you highlight them and social media to it. It helps make that attitude contagious. People want to be part of the the percentage of team members who are doing great things for their community so I mean. Recently we've seen tons of video shared of our couriers who are there's one that was folding a flak that fallen on the ground when it was shoveling snow for a customer when their their doorstep was just completely covered. We've had a few of those We've actually just had another flag folding story that popped up yesterday maybe so I mean yeah. There's I mean there's a there are so many great things that are team members are doing small things and big things that we can highlight to this campaign and they've been outperforming all of the content that we've that we've been pushing out there. It's really awesome to see and it's. It's a heartwarming campaign to be a part of also Alex is made possible by program is just phenomenal. And you articulated. Why it's optimistic. It has that third party credibility. Because you're not it's not fedex corporate talking about Fedex but it's your carriers and your teams and and other people who were talking in this case positively about about your brand. It's just phenomenal. I think also for me in this kind of gets to my question cut helps me realize the scale at which your organization operates you mentioned six seven thousand mentions a day a half a million employees one of the largest fleets of aircraft and vehicles in rickshaws and the entire in the entire world. My question is how from where you sit as global social media manager there in Memphis Tennessee. How do you work kind of outside of your world? Which is the marketing communications? World going to ask you how you with three different teams I would be. Hr because again. You're dealing with a half a million people who are out there. Tweeting on behalf of the company. In almost all instances positively inappropriately but every now and then maybe something not so appropriate number two customer service because so many of those six or seven thousand missions our customers who are asking whether packages or whereas they're courier or why didn't you pick this up. You know good bad indifferent. And then the third kind of audience at I'll be really curious about would be the operations so the actual running of Fedex where most of those half a million employees set. How'd you kind of work in coordinate with those different departments? Yes okay. That is a very good question. I'm going to rearrange the order in which you asked about so i WanNa talk about customer service because we work with them more than anybody else on a daily basis really The person on my team. Who's managing those That issue management? Who's doing the listening is the one who interacts with them on the rag all the time. They are the critical partners to us. So the reason is that we we see the good the bad the ugly about Fedex across social media especially this person. Who's doing that issue management anytime? She sees something she knows. Our Customer Service Team has not address slip through the cracks or that there is somebody with a massive following or something's gaining traction That they need to nip in the bud immediately or take immediate action on she reaches out to There's an escalation list that we send it up to so There's social media managers and our customer service managers directors who are responsible for the customer service reps on social media who take action on that So the way that we kind of divide and conquer social media with customer service they are actively monitoring all of the mentions of Fedex. Whether it's a Hashtag Orson. At mentioned across our channels they use salesforce to interact with customers. And they've made huge strides. Recently they went from. I want to say the average response time. A few years ago was fifteen hours is what it was down to an eight minute. Response Time average which is incredible Especially across twitter so they they have really come along way and they're great at their jobs. They're really good at what they do. They're very responsive. So what we do is we just help supplement them. If we know that there's something that they maybe didn't see where that hasn't been pulled into salesforce or there's on case assigned to a customer. We help escalate that to them and say. Hey this is something you guys should probably be aware of and would be great if you could take action on. Because it's gaining traction social and we don't want it to become an issue because the most important thing for both of our teams is creating that great fedex experience we have what's called the Purple Promise here Fedex which is I will make every Fedex experience outstanding and so that's ultimately what we all want to do So we stay connected with them as much as we can to make sure that we are creating that great customer experience and nobody feels like their case is not as important as somebody else's so the next time I'll talk about. Hr WE WORK WITH HR on a couple of different in a couple of different ways. One proactively we need to understand from a recruitment standpoint. What are their biggest needs for? Woman created in content. What do we need to be highlighting about FEDEX? Or who are the audiences that we need to read in order to attract and retain talent within our company? The other way though and more of a reactive is we see content from some of our team members that we think we need to share with HR for consideration for social media guidelines because we build the social media guidelines for employees in conjunction with HR We will share. You know what we're seeing trends that we're seeing as far as social media interactions engagements new tools new platforms so as building out those refreshing those guidelines. We know okay. Here's some some new things that are coming. We may need to add to the guidelines because this is become a pattern social media over the last however year so and then the last one operations Operations is an interesting one for us. We I would say the the main way that we work with operations is through. Customer Service on a reactive basis. So if we know that there is somebody who is missing a package and it is critical and we see a way that we can step in and say. Hey you know maybe it's a Fedex express station manager. That is the closest one to a customer. Who's missing a wedding dress? We could reach out to the station manager and say we saw this post Obviously will work with our customer service team to make it happen but They can jump in action to make sure these people received the the items that they need but another way that we work with them is they are really great at submitting story ideas so a lot of our operations team members are on the frontline. They see these team members. And they're the ones interacting with customers. They know about the stories that we need to tell and so we we have a two way relationship. We get the stories from them. We create stories about our team members. Feed into that possible by campaign and then We work with them to make sure that our customers are getting. They need three audiences three very specific and accurate answers. Thank you for for that. I think that really helps our listeners. Who probably dealing with many of the same types of questions and dealing probably not at the scale at which you're you're dealing with. I do WanNa talk a little bit about measurement in. Roi You are a business. It's all about numbers and tracking everything. So I'm curious how you track performance of your team and social media at Fedex you as it relates to the great metric that you used around social customer care moving from your fifteen or eight hours two or fifty dollars to eight minutes type. Sla All the way to the efficacy of your post. How do you kind of set the bar for your team? Then how do you measure their performance.
"fedex" Discussed on Here & Now
"The torrent of news. Recently you may have missed an item about Amazon. It has blocked its third party sellers from using Fedex for delivery. Our next guest says that's another another sign of the coming collapse Fedex. Scott Galloway is professor of marketing at New York University. Stern School of business got welcome. Thanks very much German. Good to be here so you write eight something. That is pretty surprising. which is you say? In the next twenty four months Fedex will either be acquired or lose an additional forty percent plus in value. What why do you say that? So I think entire industries have now been what I call feature is and that is these Incredibly low margin difficult businesses are being used as components components to make high margin more scalable businesses stickier so you have what is arguably the most dominant firm and retail now using fulfilment as a means of trying to establish how much greater loyalty across their loyalty program in this case prime so I think Fedex is being featuring if you will. It's interesting because when I'm driving on the highway I'll I feel like I still see more Fedex trucks than Amazon prime trucks. But maybe that's wrong. No you do Amazon has a fraction of the capital expenditure of the Fedex but they start with several advantage. It's clean sheet design and also as big tax is becoming famous for the move to sort of this algorithm of exploitation and that what is there the reality is Amazon will have a much lower cost base because they will not have things like health benefits or paternity for their drivers in granted. That's not it's not true for all Fedex drivers some of them are contract workers but the caw space the cost structure will be lower. The technology will be better and to be blunt the film it and delivery is all about trust in the most trusted brand in the world right now is Amazon interesting and Amazon. I had a much better on time. Delivery performance over the holidays than index. That's correct some of this reality and some of it is perception in the financial markets. Perception is almost as important in that Amazon is now able to perform what I refer to as a Jedi. mind mind trick against Fedex. In the form of now that they are in the business or officially in the business of fulfillment in the last two years Fedex's shed about forty percent of its value while Amazon is increased. Its value thirty percent. And you're continue to see a further erosion and the Stock Price Fedex even if it's not supported by the fundamentals because the markets have come to believe that one Amazon sets sight on a industry that every other player in the industry begins to shed value to Amazon and the seeds a lot of advantages Amazon. Their cost of capital goes down in enables them to sort of fulfil the promise if you will or make their own future by massively investing in that category to the extent that other players can kind of best now why Fedex and such a worse position than the other big delivery service that we think of which is ups. I think Fedex has not innovated I I think internally they've been very focused or the CNN focused on tax avoidance and just as a consumer if you look at the experience whether it's the user interface there on time delivery relative to Amazon or ups they're just sub-standard. Signing Fedex is the most vulnerable of the logistics and fulfillment players and just to give our listeners. Some of the statistics here Amazon logistics is already shipping being over two and a half billion packages annually in the US three billion for Fedex in the US Four point seven billion for ups. That's according to WHO Morgan Stanley estimates. How did Amazon get into delivery and gained so much ground so quickly in the industry show Amazon? It's boring stuff. That out shareholder value Amazon opportunity to go vertical if you will control the front end of ECOMMERCE and that is the interface interface online with their retail offering and Amazon. It also puts Amazon strengths because this is exceptionally complicated. Takes incredible operational excellence facility with data and quite frankly access to billions and billions of dollars and cheap capital and Amazon. Has All of those things and Amazon is playing hardball with its competitors. It's blocked its third party sellers from even using Fedex not only that Germany but they announced a couple of weeks before Christmas publicly and to do that before the holidays and embarrass fat ax is kind of I acquire the now jailed uses staging a mock homecoming queens ceremony and then pouring pig's blood on somebody. This was this was is really calling fedex out and doing it at the worst moment possible. This was a strategic stabbing. If you will if you were advising Fred Smith at Fedex or the other leaders there. What would you tell them to do? So so the company Fedex is really behind the eight ball I think Fedex needs to sell to another player. I would argue. Are you the best or most likely candidate is Walmart. Who would then be like Amazon vertical automatic control the front end and control back in so my advice so I have to say hey Scott? I'm hearing you talk about this. And you obviously know this industry very well My big thought on this is With all of this movement to online shopping shopping and all this movement to delivering everything that we used to go out and buy. There's just so much more packaging are they thinking as much about reducing that amount of waste aced As they are about how to deliver things faster you know. That's a great question. I don't know if it's getting the attention of warrants. We've heard about a lot of you know plans for innovation and different types of packaging different types of materials. So I'd like to think they're thinking about this but the reality is that the music doesn't match the words yet. There's a lot more hype. There's a lot more words in their actual activity or action. That's got Galloway Professor of marketing at The New York University Stern School of business. Thanks for joining us.

"Back wins and fails Scott so many fails like what Here's a win. I'll do my win. And you know the last week I had that Fedex breakdown because they messed up my thing and it caused me hundreds of dollars to get something that they just anyway. Amazon is barring third party sellers from using Fedex ground for prime deliveries. Because they said we have seen a drop happened delivery performance and Fedex ground Fedex home shit methods for seller fulfilled. Prime shipments I listen Amazon's. It's like backing like Darth vader. Later over how the time. But I'm going going gone with Anikin skywalker whatever. So that's that's really I mean. That's a great. Yes Oh and you. My blog post today is on is on Fedex Yeah you brought this up or inspired me to start looking into us Fedex in a word and this is an academic term is just fought because effectively. If you you look at. There's this interesting dynamic in technology where in it's mostly it started in software where every software startup and I'm on the board of a few of them worries that someday they're gonNA wake up and they're gonNA find that Oracle or adobe has turn their product and made it into a feature unbundle it similar. Make it the free. Basically put them out of business overnight they turn it into a feature of their own suite of offerings similar. To what kind of Microsoft did where it said. Internet explorer is free and bundled with office and and basically put Netscape the fastest growing company in history to that point out of business with ineffectively like twelve to eighteen months. But it's now starting to happen and I don't know what the term is featured you've been mm featured across some incredibly large impressive companies and essentially fedex is being featured by Amazon in that is shipping and filming and logistics are now becoming break even businesses for Amazon that they feature is part of prime and Fedex had ah literally threw up on themselves and their most recent earnings report and they tried to employ this crazy delay or obligation to say it had something to do with airfreight..

This is outmoded their staff of four hundred ninety thousand workers dixie. Bloated and we're civil matter doesn't even think they can make cuts because it would hurt. Morale is such a mess that even though Oh fedex disappointed. I'm stunned. They made as much money as they did. I don't know how to fix. That's the company that's too hard. I'm not in that game but I do have some justice round to turn the stock route. I I would stop doing what. CFO Alan grafted on the call which is basically predict the bottom. When there's no bottom in sight they need to start being more realistic? Stop calling bottoms second. They should stop giving guidance entirely if they can't make an accurate forecast when you don't know what's happening when you're overrun by events. It's better to remain silent and before the fool then to speak and removal doubt finally Fedex needs to stop trying to stay highly profitable and has since spent the money. They need to be competitive in a world where e-commerce is much faster than they ever expected expected. They need that. Take that darn head. And if that means bringing new management so be it book Fedex keeps messing up with. This company is not a disgrace. The real disgrace national keeps believing. They've got it right when in reality they're dead wrong stopped predictions stop the sham guides and take take time to figure it all out then and only then will fed ex.

It talks about dense urban and it talks about mid band metro and low ban nationwide so basically when they're in dense urban and they can do five G.. Really well they're going to then mid Ban Metros can be going to kind of be like Lt is today and then low ban nationwide's a little bit slower but has a much bigger density in other words it can. It can get places that signals can't otherwise based on the frequency so as they build this out of course what they want to see see is that the cake could can become complete but right. Now it's real narrow on the five G. Sign and mid band METRA's little bit smaller so ultimately you WanNa see all these the equal the it'll take many years for that to happen by think. T. Mobile's got a really good strategy here. So for those of you that are thinking about a service. You're thinking about switching. I think T. Mobile's got the right game plan. We'll see what happens here over time With that game plan but He and I can't complain on the T.. Mobile might buy that. Have that reminds. I need to think Anita cancel that now think I'm good most of the places I'm going now. I'm on wiped by very rarely. Do I need to other anymore. There's a controversial sale of a dot org.

Google told his Turkish business partners of will not be able to work with them on new android phones released in Turkey after the Turkeys Competition. Board rule changes Google made on it to to its contracts. Were not acceptable. So basic there in a big antitrust up there Turkey wants basically people have the easy ability to switch switch off Google search engine and variety of other things they want this to be easy for people using android in Turkey and basically. It's gotten to the point where Google said well. Hey any new phones coming out. We we can't help you We can't license android. Ta Because of this dispute. So Google is playing a little hardball all here and of course turkeys playing hardball. Same time so again. We'll see how this goes. What balls out here but Can you imagine trying to bring a new phone to market not having in an operating system port. Because you're countries basically said hey we don't think you're being fair So be careful what you wish for. JBL says his polar polar JBL says it solar powered ahead bones deliver on limited listening. It's crown funding. Hanging effort called the reflect eternal and so GB L. is not betting their own business on this betting. Your money on this in this crowdfunding operation to try to be able to again fraud fund these phones and of course I would even admit that wireless headphones are pain. 'cause we're always charging urging them and But they WANNA have these little bit of solar panels on them so the charge and what are they going to price them at the calm the JBL reflect eternal self charging whereas headphones. Oh and by the way it still will have a headphone Jack in it and it will era power Ainhoa a charging Jack and ninety nine dollars. This is the drug funding entry level cadillacs 2021 escalade will boost his thirty eight inch curved Oh led screen now. Oh that's a bigger screen than a lot of us have on our desk pretty insane. A thirty eight inch curved led screen and. I bet that baby's GONNA be beautiful video of it. This video cannot be served sap to go to twitter. Look at it but Anyway if you love escalade to get a big monitoring your car soon visa is warning all drivers. They go to the gas station to put your credit card in if you don't have a chip reader so a lot of gas stations in United States have chip readers. Now you put your card in it holds it reads. The chip proves it. You don't just do the sticking poll anymore. And they're warning about a malware exploited exploited gas stations across the nation and So these are really affecting the old style card readers and Basically visas told all gas stations. You need to be done and flipped a card readers by October twenty. Twenty if you're not you're going to be liable for for fraud. So they're just saying basically observed that the payment system sports a chip and pin compatible cards safety us. And if you notice a merchant it using outdated payment system you must encourage them to upgrade. I wonder if this just bees are being visa and saying hey the upgraded chip readers putting out a little bit of misinformation. They don't talk about the exact type of attack that's happening but again they're warning about a malware exploit what we've known that there's there's been issues at gas stations for years where people have put faults readers on gas station pumps is nothing new there so not surprised but it they didn't give me some specific specifics Mercedes delayed the US launch of its all aw electric SUV until two thousand twenty one and they say they're going to focus on the growing demand in Europe. I here's the problem that we're seeing with these electric cars. Just not enough charging stations. Lots of people are getting cars but not enough commercial charging station. Instagram is now hiding faults. Content behind warnings except for politicians. So is your name is giving politicians save the same free reign to spread information as it is parent company facebook and expanding its limited back checking test in the United States. You may now work with forty five third party organizations -tations to assess the truthfulness of video continents website on its APP. You know. I guess that's the key right.

Two days of Christmas past twenty thirteen to be exact when Thanksgiving came late in November and shippers got overwhelmed by bad weather and Qalat of last minute Christmas packages the result was a public relations debacle ups Fedex which also saw some delays blamed the delivery delays delays on. What they call a perfect storm angry? Customers took to social media to complain the grinch that stole Christmas War Brown the color of ups how she since then ups has opened six new automated superhubs. Fedex has added new handling equipment and the US Postal Service has invested in scanners. Now they'll face a test again with Thanksgiving having fallen late in November leaving six fewer shopping days before Christmas and that means shoppers and shippers. I have to move fast consumers. Want it there on time. They do All throughout the year but more importantly right now Shlomo rackliff owns a ups store franchise ties in Burbank California. He's had a sign on his counter since mid-november letting customers know about Christmas shipping deadlines generally the majority of the public public waits till the last minute now with one last week we're planning and expecting a bigger rush than normal.

A lot of the expectations of consumers is regarding speed of shipping have been driven by Amazon. New York. Universities are on Sunday. Rodgen studies how technologies transform business.

The journal terms and conditions apply fedex fedex announced last week that it will no longer be shipping packages for amazon. It's a decision that will lose fedex. Almost a billion dollars in revenue <music> fedex is business is shipping boxes and almost no single company generates more boxes to ship than amazon today on on the show. Why would fedex cut ties with a company that would seem to be. It's perfect customer. Welcome to the journal <unk> our show about money business power. I'm ryan kanoute. Send an i'm kate linebaugh. It's monday august twelfth. The relationship between fedex in amazon started to deteriorate after one dramatic christmas. Let's let's go back to december twenty thirteen. It's christmas and it's a year were ecommerce is growing taking share for malls. It's on fire palsy. Albro covers the shipping industry for the wall street journal. We're getting down to the last few days before christmas. Everybody's sitting at home and they are buying presents presents for their kids. Their relatives and they're expecting it to arrive before christmas but what's happening behind. The scenes is u._p._s. Fedex are getting crushed. There are just millions of packages that are being dropped into their network. Not only from from amazon dick's sporting goods macy's kohl's l.l bean. I mean just any retallack you can think of the network was being completely overwhelmed and millions of people a little bit get their packages before christmas. Christmas was ruined for a lot of people christmas. Cheer turned into christmas jeers today after a lot of disappointed online shoppers were without out there gifts on christmas morning. I waited around for hours and hours for it to show up and it never did. It's terribly disappointing because we ordered these things on december first. I was really excited. I couldn't wait to see your face and it didn't happen so i was disappointed and the carriers had to issue refunds john's and sort of amazon amazon akitas well but amazon did something about it. They really got serious about wondering thing. You know what do we have to do to make sure it doesn't happen down the road and they decided that they were going to look into building their own shipping network that strikes me as an extraordinarily ambitious. Che's response to something that all of retail had to deal with but here's amazon deciding. We're gonna actually build our own logistics company right but amazon is known for big ambitious. Che's ideas and really disrupting industries and they certainly have the capital to pursue this sort of bold idea. I don't think it would be hyperbole to say that they're one of the most i feared companies. Incorp america dina mattioli covers amazon for the wall street. Journal amazon's not content to partner with other companies when they think that they could do these things better themselves. They're studying different companies and industries that they can get involved in and if there's an ability to bring efficiencies or to execute under better level they probably will amazon's done a good job at looking inwardly and saying well if we need this type of service. Maybe our customers need it to amazon has used this playbook many times. When it sees an opportunity in another industry it's studies that industry carefully and then pounces so a prime example example of that is cloud computing amazon started growing beyond book selling and they started adding lots of other categories and they needed data and computer pewter bandwidth to help serve those customers so they created cloud computing and then at some point. They said you know what if we need this to run back operations. Any number of companies in the world world probably need it to and that's now the cash cow of the business. I think a lot of people still describe. Amazon is one of the world's biggest retailers but there's so much more the not these days. They are a massive hollywood studio. They're one of the biggest advertising companies in the world. They make their own electronics. They make kindle and alexa which are wildly popular. They're getting into healthcare. They're getting into health insurance and with whole foods and their amazon goes stores. They're also getting into grocery so there's really you know industry that they don't have their tentacles in some fashion in how do companies react when they start to pick up. The scent amazon might be looking into their neighborhood with panic. I think i know this from my prior job covering mergers and acquisitions that you'd be hard pressed to find a single boardroom in america where amazon's not regularly brought up up and people are trying to make themselves amazon proof but when amazon decided to get its tentacles into the shipping business. Fedex's ceo didn't react with panic antic at all here. He is in a fox business interview. Amazon is now a big customer for you time. They're trying to get their own trucks. Their customers twelve competitor the fact that amazon had lots of trucks and things like that is smart from them. Not a threat to us sex would always face the question of what are you gonna do about amazon as a competitor amazon's growing. It's living in our county feel about that. Is that a risk for guys and fedex stance in the words of their c._e._o. And founder fred smith was that amazon being a competitor was quote fantastical. He didn't believe that amazon would build out a network network to rival its own and there was a reason fedex was doubtful. When it comes to logistics. You can't just bill the network to deliver packages any given week. You have to weigh over build your capacity. There's a phrase this isn't logistics industry that you build a church for easter and what that means is that every sunday your church. It may not be packed but on easter. It'll be packed and it'll be overflowed. Amazon needed to build its church. They needed to have its church. That can handle there overflow. Their big peaks in volume around christmas around prime day. Despite this enormous barrier to entry amazon got to work doc building. It's church anyway in just a few years. It's built up a massive logistics apparatus including hundreds of warehouses tens of thousands of trucks and dozens of airplanes over the last few years you start seeing amazon trucks on the road more often so in two thousand fifteen amazon started prime now which is basically one hour delivery and some metro markets later on that year. They started leasing airplanes. They also started looking for people who on small businesses though basically be amazon's delivery partners. I you could start your own business. Hire workers renison vans and you basically have replicated the model that fedex uses in his ground business two years ago twenty. Two percent of packages were delivered by themselves today. Forty five percent of packages are delivered by amazon so almost half of amazon's packages these are delivered by amazon itself and if doubled that in just two years yeah amazon now has around fifty cargo planes now that's still pales in comparison to fedex is around seven hundred planes but for only a few years of work for amazon. It's not bad what u._p._s. has built out over a century korea and fedex has honed over forty years amazon have done no matter of years and all of this would have been fine for fedex. Maybe if amazon was building the network to ship only its own packages but last year amazon declared that shipping other people's packages would be a new line of business third party's people and businesses who sell on amazon can now ship through amazon too and that cuts directly into fedex is business say you're a a sneaker retailer and you're selling shoes on amazon the way an ebay seller might sell on ebay you would sell the shoes an amazon truck would come pick it up from you and they would put in their network the way they would amazon packages and get it to the end user so fedex was just kind of you know what the heck were worshipping your packages. It is but you're also building this business to compete with fedex any business who wakes up one day and sees a customer turning into competitor as the the right to reevaluate their relationship so last week fedex re evaluated and decided to cut ties with amazon and they could afford award to do that. The nine hundred million dollars amazon pays fedex to deliver packages. It's actually only about one percent of fedex is total revenue and there were risks to staying with amazon if fedex were to stay with amazon so amazon becomes not one percent of its revenue but five percent or ten percent then it's really hard to split ways and that's the situation one fedex is biggest competitors finds itself in right now u._p._s. in a really different different position with amazon amount of revenue that u._p._s. Guests from amazon is much closer to ten percent than than fedex so certainly couldn't cut ties with the retailer like fedex. Did the amazon grew so big that they could bring a lot of those packages into its own network ups be left with a huge revenue whole you can't really lose that to give give a customer and not feel immediate pain. That was one reason that fedex proactively cut ties with amazon even though it was still getting business shipping amazon packages fedex figured if amazon really has these ambitious to grow their delivery business. They're gonna leave us no matter what so. Why should we be helping them in these last few years of then giving us. This revenue is basically saying. You're not gonna fire me. I quit we'll figure out under our own terms rather than having our hands before when amazon says we don't need you anymore. It is a risk. I mean it's like the biggest ground beef supplier in the world and not at selling hamburgers to mcdonald's so obviously fedex is taking a risk by cutting ties with amazon but it's a risk that fedex thinks could pay off big time fedex is planned to go up against amazon and make itself a lot of money in the process.

And like, I said the golf tournament appearance and other things he's just he's very connected to our leadership into our brand the importance of branding is something Hamlin has learned about perhaps the most with FedEx is the simplest things, you think that it's, you know, who cares shouldn't matter. Right. We get calls all the time that hey, you gotta run that bias in. It's like, oh, well, that's just something simple. Like, I wouldn't even think twice about. But the brand to them is so serious in the sense of that day, protect that that label in that brain that means a lot to them and the integrity of that brand that they're gonna protect it at all cost. Just the simplest thing of the stitching on a hat. You wouldn't believe how many proofs we go through on hats that just will have a threat or to not right? And it's gotta go back this year. I get a new suit, and I'm so happy. I'm so happy I've had to wear the same suit that actually has been discontinued for many many years. But when we found out they're going to discontinue this material we bought it all up. Because we knew that. Hey, we have to we had to get this because the FedEx logo looked right. The color was right on that particular type of cloth. We finally found a new suit manufacturer that got the die. Right. Got the the coloring. Right. Because that's how important it is that when federal logo is shown it's got to be on the right backdrop with the right? Everything has got to be perfect. The perfect ending for Hamlin who will turn thirty nine in November staying with FedEx for the entirety of his career, so fourteen seasons. How many more do you think you can be a FedEx driver? Yeah. I'd I'd like to do one more contract beyond beyond. What I have what I have is long-term. We're not even really in the middle of that yet. So I would like to be here. I'd like to I mean, it's so rare we thought Jimmy would finish with lows. Right.
