Collaborated with our Son and a trusted colleague

Lee Cockerell highly recommends this book.

Collaborated with our Son and a trusted colleague to run a few thoughts by them before i sent an email or made a phone call to the event owner in yesterday stories over the past week.

The colleague referred to a book (photo above) Lee Cockerell highly recommends.

While i will likely never read it, there was solace provided by my colleague in his recommendation.

Basically, do not compromise on your video and audio recording are strictly prohibited.

Son, this is why working at Disney takes special people to constantly give much more than any industry standard for resolving Customer, Employee, or Vendor tensions. Not all people are able to do this generously, for a lifetime. Some are challenged to do it for a single day.

How we falsely judge ourselves

Disney Podcast jeff noel
The partnership with Jody Maberry involves the transferability of using .think .differently in everything we do.

Talk about a career change.

It was a personal mission to make the above statement my thesis for Disney’s Approach to Leadership Excellence.

Note: When i began teaching the four-day open-enrollment classes at Walt Disney World in 1999, i began asking questions i thought everyone should have a ready answer to, but no one did.

Astonished, yet optimistic, i forged my own hypothesis based on 15+ years in Disney front-line and front-line leadership roles.

It was the catalyst for my life mantra:

Don’t make it too hard for your employees

Insight from 30 years inside Disney…

You cannot live on thoughts (intentions). You can only live on actions.

No one builds a life (or a reputation) based on what they’re gonna do someday.
