Huddle up

Disney Institute trainers
My final Super Bowl engagement was Super Bowl 48 in New York/New Jersey. This is part of our team rehearsing (and having some fun).

Yesterday while prepping for a speech and searching for an older photo to use, i stumbled upon lots of Disney Institute photos.

The distraction was fun, of course.

The speech is a month away and there’s no ticking-clock pressure to stay focused.

Worth mentioning too that this speech preparation is a more concentrated effort to increase the use of photos and to have fewer slides with words. Additionally, any slide with words is being reevaluated to pare it to three words or less.

If Disney Ran Your Life

Being remarkable is a superpower

Tom Brady at Walt Disney World
The greatest of all time. People remark about this all the time. People also remark about the “I’m going to Disney World” commercials.

Being remarkable is a superpower.

How do you scale career excellence for an entire lifetime?

How do you scale career excellence for an entire lifetime?

Find a million ways to stay motivated.

Live as if every day is a new day (because it is).

Live in deep gratitude every moment of every new day.

Live as if you and the people you work with have a mission to make our world a better place.

If you can’t find people or an organization to make the world a better place, start your own organization – be an army of one if you have to.

Do work that is challenging and often difficult, yet simultaneously rarely feels like work.

See money as the reward, not the goal.

Ever work for an organization that’s never satisfied?

Thomas Edison quote
Waiting for the hotel elevator at 6:15am yesterday.

 

Ever work for an organization that’s never satisfied?

Disney is like that.

Never.

Satisfied.

Spend a lifetime working at a place like that and it changes you.

Big time.

Why? How?

Because progress is never made by coasting.

You learn that something is only impossible until the first person does it.

Walt said a couple things that allow a relentlessly focused culture of excellence to thrive…

It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.

And…

While we should always take our work seriously, we should never take ourselves too seriously.

As CEO of You, Inc, Creating Magic is your responsibility.

 

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.
