It is a small world at Disney. Almost every leader starts out on the front line in an hourly role.
Jungle Jeff at Disney’s World-Famous Jungle Cruise attraction in Adventureland, in 1982.
Cheryl as a Merchandise Hostess in the Christmas Shoppe and the Garden Shop at The Disney Village Marketplace, in 1984.
George as a busser (clearing plates, etc from restaurant tables) at Disney’s Contemporary Resort Hotel, in 1971.
Disney is a leadership machine. So many talented leaders.
One leaves, one easily is replaced. Maybe not initially, but in due time, you become a memory.
This is a bitter pill at first, until you realize it’s a cultural phenomena.
You take solace on who you served, how you served, and why you served.
This is the way.Mandalorian saying
