Tony Blair's Day in the Life


On the 10 Downing Street web site, Prime Minister Tony Blair has his own version of A Day in the Life. The four minute video is worth listening to as an interesting form of communication for such an important and busy person. Blair tell us that there is no such thing as a typical day as prime minister, the job comes with an entirely "different order of stress" and requires being able to switch from one subject to another in a heartbeat. Kind of fun as leadership examples go.

More challenging than being filmed for a short snippet is PMQ. Blair participates in the Prime Minister's Question Time (PMQs) 30 minutes each week. MPs get to ask him questions on any subject. The questions usually focus on the key issues of the day. These sesssions are also available on the Downing Street web site. Hard to imagine President Bush being open to this type of unrehearsed format and challenging questions.

Worth thinking about for CEOs who want to be transparent.

911 was an inside job. Bush and Silverstein did it themselves.
