  1. Hey Dan,

    That’s a neat clip :) Just out of curiosity, was the woman in a different studio/city?

    By clearly knowing why you’re irreplaceable, and helping others on an ongoing basis, you are almost assured to keep your job!

    Thx for the share,


  2. I agree with Matt, this is fantastic, Dan. (Also a bit curios as to the interview setup :D )

    This could also apply to entrepreneurs and the audiences they serve, or interacting with their teams.

    Great stuff man. Really impressive!

  3. Hi Dan,

    I cannot see how this can do what you said it would.
    What does drawing a picture of me as a stick figure really have to do with my keeping my job. I did listen and hear what you said and on the whole I agree with your Blahx3 thinking… I just didn’t get this it was a bit of Blah Blah for me sorry… Just feeding it back… Not right or wrong just not clear to me…
