If you’re needing a boost,
this is a good read.
It’s about the Muppets
and our world today.
Jim Henson’s visionary leadership style
fostered a culture of innovation, risk-taking, hard work, and playfulness.
It also fostered a culture of inclusivity, tolerance, respect, and acceptance
—qualities we so need in our world now.
As some of you know,
4 years ago this week (!!)
we launched a documentary
I’d conceived and co-produced
which focused on these themes.
It’s called Muppet Guys Talking
and it’s a short feel-good film
that will inspire you,
make you laugh,
and open your eyes
through unexpected stories,
rare behind-the-scenes footage,
and important insights into how Jim led his team.
Whether you lead a family, a small group or a larger organization,
. . . whether you’re interested in the creative process and collaboration,
. . . whether you’re an artist of any kind,
. . . a massive Muppets fan,
. . . or all of the above,
there are so many lessons in this film
that will uplift your spirit
and shift your thinking.
You can see an upbeat 2-minute trailer above
(which alone will make you smile)
and you can also see a bonus 1-minute recap video
from our visit to Good Morning America here:

P.S. Here are some press comments:
“…a moving look at the power of creativity and collaboration.”
“A candid, often bitingly funny conversation.”
“Muppet fans should be intrigued, which means just about everybody should be intrigued.”
