Disney Leadership lessons

Social media images from this morning, February 28, 2022. Reminds me of how divided social media makes family, friends, coworkers, etc. Two overwhelmingly vocal mindsets: (1) keep up with the times (our $200/year dues haven’t increased in 26 years) versus (2) if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it. Change is life’s only constant. Agree or disagree, embrace or resist, change doesn’t care.

Disney’s Leadership produces an annual global recognition as one of the top-10 most admired companies in the world.

Our (Disney) over-focus on the same things others under-focus on or ignore is the reason.

Learned it, did it, and eventually taught it to over one-million external people. And, of course, taught it to countless frontline Cast Members simply as a frontline Disney Operations leader.

It works.

It produces exceptional results – organizational vibrancy if you will.

i continue to teach it 40 years after my original January 1982 Disney hire date.

We live less than one mile from Walt Disney World. The Vacation Capital of the World.

High probability that some people hate Disney and the employees (Cast Members) who work at Disney.


No idea.

Got businesses?

Walt Disney World Main Street
Unmistakably a business.

Waiting and doing nothing are the twin siblings of self-destruction.

If something looks like a duck and sounds like a duck.

If something looks like a business and sounds like a business.

Gut instincts aren’t 100% accurate, but gut instincts are valuable because of their high accuracy.

Cryptic note: The uniqueness of what’s going on is so high, i think worst case scenario i should fear for my safety. Best case is this whole thing evaporates and becomes a non-issue.
