Great Disney leaders are active and visible

Hey, suggestion…read the post first and then watch this 20-minute video. Of course, 20 minutes is a luxury and probably impossible for you at this moment).

Ps. It may be one of the most important videos you watch this year. It certainly is for me. And if you are wondering why, click here.



Great Disney leaders are active and visible.


Because the only time a leader comes around is when                        .

Fill in the blank.

When there’s something wrong.

You get the picture.

When people see you frequently (and consistently) they start to let their guard down – because conversations go past work and naturally lead to personal – we don’t care how much a person knows until we know how much a person cares.

Not until your team is comfortable with you being around, will they start telling you the truth about what’s going on.

Until then, you’re being handled.

Good luck changing your habits.

It’s only impossible until you figure out what to let go of.

Wonder if Walt Disney Ever…

Wonder if Walt Disney ever jogged?  Or ever went to the gym?  Or swam, walked or biked with any regularity?

I have never read anything that suggests Walt Disney was physically active.

This is one dimension where Walt Disney and jeff noel differ.

Yesterday, to celebrate turning 50, I ran the annual Watermelon 5k, in Winter Park.  There had to be close to 1,500 to 2,000 runners and walkers there.

The American Council of the Blind (ACB) had their annual convention in Orlando and its members participated! For the first time ever the ACB used a fun run/walk to raise funds and encourage their members to embrace an active and healthy lifestyle.

Embrace an active and healthy lifestyle? Hmm….That’s one of the common sense things that everyone can embrace.

Here’s to your health:

Carpe diem, jungle jeff 🙂
