Word for word from a Canadian University website…

There are five powerful lessons in business, lessons carefully developed by the Disney organization in its never-ending pursuit of excellence. These universal pillars of a successful business—leadership, culture, service, brand and innovation—are the keys to sustained business excellence. Together, these lessons forge an enduring bond between inspired leaders, motivated employees, satisfied customers, and an ability to drive stakeholder value.

Throughout this course, you will discover insights that drive Disney parks and resorts organization and gain awareness of how these insights could be adapted to strengthen your own organizational efforts.

 

 

Did you know: i spent the last 15 years of a 30-year Disney career teaching and advising at Disney Institute? Traveled the globe preaching the “Good News” of Walt Disney.

Headmaster asked for the title and summary

Live like you mean it looks good on paper.

 

Our Son’s Headmaster asked for the title and summary of tomorrow’s 30-minute Executive Summary for him and his executive Council…

Title: If Disney Ran Your Business

Through a set of simple, fun, insightful, hands-on activities, you’ll learn the over-arching thesis for Disney’s success architecture that enables consistent and sustainable world-class results. This “architecture” currently has Disney sitting in the #5 position – Fortune’s World’s Most Admired Companies. You will also come to realize that it’s not the Magic that makes it work, it’s the work that makes it Magic.

Be amazed and be amazing. 😃⚡✨

An example from these five daisy-chained blog posts.

In early 2009, my record for consecutive days writing five daily blog posts was two days.

i set an impossible goal of writing five-a-day for 100 straight days.

Impossible.

Fast forward.

It’s been 3,200+ consecutive days.

Never missing a single day.

So yes, we are capable of more than we think.

Much more.

Speaker Video idea 4/5 – Conflict

Speaker Video idea 4/5 – Conflict:

Great stories always involve conflict. We’ll need to figure out our conflict. Some ideas:

  1. Client verbally pushes back on “No speaker videos and wants to discontinue conversation – or the look on jeff’s face says the client never replied back via email.”
  2. jeff is clearly challenged to find a convincing way to get Meeting Planners and Speakers Bureaus to .think .differently
  3. Showcase a Disney Theme Park example of a stereotypical challenge that overcame conventional thinking by our Guests
  4. Illustrate the “plain vanilla effect” of every speaker having speaker videos – an impossible stereotype to break???
  5. Maybe a short clip of Roger Bannister breaking the 4-minute mile barrier, or something like that – the Berlin Wall coming down

The art of important, sustainable change requires this

Important, sustainable change only happens with a clear, concise, compelling vision and the simple architecture to support it.

Without intentional blueprints, an organization has no powerful, unrelenting battle cry.

Without a rally-point, the entire team metaphorically drifts at sea, and not only drifts, but drifts apart individually and collectively.
