Disney Institute origin story (become irrationally excellent)

Leadership observations
The CEO made some observations from our dinner outing (International Drive and the Orlando Eye) the night before.

 

Become irrationally excellent…i can picture Walt Disney epitomizing this notion.

And from that i give myself permission (having worked at Disney for over 30 years) to be irrational too.

Disney Institute’s history and origin story as told by Jim Korkis.

Irrationally Passionate

Orlando Eye car
This Orlando Eye ride vehicle iPad didn’t work last night, except to show date and time.

 

Orlando Eye view
Orlando Eye view last night. Blurry, but you get the picture…International Drive (we call it I-Drive) is Orlando’s Times Square or Vegas Strip…nighttime excitement, etc.

 

Orlando Eye car
Orlando Eye car…takes 22 minutes to do one revolution.

 

i got to work with some of the most talented Disney Cast Members during my Disney career from 1982 – 2014.

Lenn Millbower was one of the greats.

He was a content designer and has had his own speaking and consulting business for many years.

He published this yesterday and i’m sharing because he writes so well, it’s easy for you to get a great Disney business insight.

Who’s the best Disney Keynote Speaker in the world?

Who’s the best Disney Keynote Speaker in the world?

Tell you in a minute.

If you don’t tell people stuff, they may never know.

Information (constructive feedback) that they should address and modify.

Information (positive blind spots that build confidence) they should celebrate and enjoy and build upon for continued contribution.

Ben, the global speakers bureau director, told me the Ritz Carlton meeting planner told him that i was the best speaker she’s ever seen.

That speech was six weeks ago.

i never knew.

Now i do.

So Ben asked, “You want to be the best Disney Speaker in the world?”

“Yes”.

Afterward, reflecting on the experience, there was a missed opportunity….will tell you at the next blog…
