Here are my top three Disney Leadership lessons:

  1. .think .differently
  2. Take risks
  3. Envision a much better future

Inspired while watching Bob Iger’s Masterclass lesson 12 (of 13) last night.

Speech’s key message points

Speech’s key message points:

Excellence can and should be expected all the time, every time.

Great leaders can and should be deeply embedded at every level of your organization.

Over-focus on details others under-focus on or ignore.

Have a clear, concise, compelling vision of the future.

Migrate everyone from compliant to committed.

Shift from assumptions to clarity.

Make every day feel like “Day 1” long after the honeymoon is over.

What you do speaks so loudly, i can’t hear what you say.

Leadership Commitment challenges

to do list for graphic design
These are graphic design to-do’s.

Leadership commitment challenges has a different context here than it does at Lane8.org (today). 

The context here is how you lead after the honeymoon effect wears off. There’s always excitement and high hopes when things are new and shiny. We easily rise to the occasion; whether it’s a promotion, a new initiative being rolled out, a corporate merger that is supposed to enhance both cultures into a better, and unified, one.

But eventually and predictably, things are harder and take longer than estimated.

When we grow weary, and the people we lead grow weary, how do we continue to show up with a Day One enthusiasm?

Of course it’s challenging to sustain Day One energy, focus, creativity, and excitement over the long haul (a lifetime?).

Yet this is the essence of great leadership.

Unwavering belief.

And the ability to excite, inspire, and motivate others as if it’s Day One, every day.

Until you have your own list, study a lot of lists

Disney Leadership Speakers
Wrote this on an airplane napkin while watching Moneyball in 2012.

Good list from a 2012 flight home from France.

Number three caught my eye. There’s a time and a place for everything. Staying late is when your learning curve is blasting off.

Once you’ve reached a certain level, you’ll need to figure out how much of your life you want to sacrifice to keep moving forward.

Turning 60 in a couple months, i can tell you that staying late no longer works for me. The other 11 are still massively important to me.

What’s your next impossible that you can’t wait to do?

Disney Leadership Speakers
Most photos i post, in any online format, come from my phone.

In yesterday’s jeffnoel.com post you saw a bunch of photos with Disney’s Pluto.

What opens up for me when i know someone’s favorite character is the opportunity to go the extra inch.

The extra inch is a Disney concept that i operationalized while speaking at Disney Institute. Most of my colleagues didn’t see the insane consultative power it yields.

Going the extra inch simply means doing just barely enough (but enough) to surprise and delight a Guest or colleague.

For example, in replying to an email from one of our Son’s teachers, i can include a photo (unexpected) of their favorite Disney Character.

The way i scale this to be able to do it with literally anyone i know (via email, text, Whatsapp, social media), is that i have a structure and process for creating, collecting, and retrieving Disney Character photos.
