Lessons Our Creative Arts Teams Can Learn from Jimmy Fallon, Pt. 1

I love the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. I’ve been a Fallon fan since his SNL days. His “Late Night” was so fresh and fun, I always enjoyed watching it. Jimmy is an engaging and super-talented entertainer, and he seems genuinely interested in the people he’s interviewing. I applauded NBC’s decision to move him to “The Tonight Show.”

Thanks to my awesome wife and her hacker-like web skillz, we scored tickets to a taping of the show. Here’s our very special and exclusive high five (haha, just kidding…but notice how Jamie gets totally Tom-Brady-style “denied”)…


It was so much fun, and there are a few takeaways that I want to share with our team here on the blog. But a few of them reminded me of a post that’s been making the rounds for the last year or so. Not being one to want to “reinvent the wheel,” I thought I’d share this post from WorshipLeader.com. I’ll follow this post up with a second post that will include my own lessons learned on Monday.

What would you add to this list? How do you put these kinds of things into practice (energy, humility, preparation, etc.)?
