Is there a place for arrogance in business?

Unofficial books about Disney Business practices

Arrogance means pride. It also means conceit.

  1. Proud.
  2. Conceited.

Proud and conceited, though related, are two very different things. Pride stems from a feeing of gratitude, joy, contribution, expertise. Conceit stems from being excessively proud, and vain.

Dennis truly is a Disney expert (and very proud grandfather) who is grateful and joyful in making a significant contribution.

So anyone claiming to be expert will be thought of in one of two ways: credible or arrogant.

This is a scary proposition for a newbie (with 30 years of Disney experience) in this “self-employed Disney space”.
