Mid Life Celebration uses the same secret sauce as Disney

The guy on stage has taught every level employee, in every industry.

 

Our ability to control our attitude is greater than anyone will ever be able to convince us.

It’s way greater than we have allowed ourselves to believe.

But here’s a little secret.

There is no secret sauce.

There is a sauce, but it ain’t a secret.

Worked at Disney for 30 years. Spent a lifetime learning from the best inside the Disney organization. Spent 15 years at Disney Institute teaching Disney’s business insights to global companies.

Disney’s secret sauce is simple and not a secret. It’s the relentless discipline to always focus on overmanaging things others undermanage or ignore.

Organizational vibrancy is the result of being intentional where others are unintentional.

Mentoring ambitious Cast Members is part of Disney’s Leadership culture

Mentoring ambitious Cast Members is part of Disney’s Leadership culture.

 

Mentoring ambitious Cast Members is part of Disney’s Leadership culture. But it depends on the leader, all of whom have more responsibility and accountability than they have time to accomplish. At least it feels like it.

We met yesterday for the second time. It started from a LinkedIn connection and grew to an informal “meet and greet” – a common Disney leadership best practice.

Even though retired, my desire to help other Cast Members is vibrant.

Why?

Because it’s a glorious obligation opportunity to pay back those who mentored me.

In the spontaneous photo above, tangible proof of what passion looks like: an ambitious future leader feverishly taking notes.

Stop and ask for advice?

Looks like he’s reading the instructions to see if it’s ok to be self-indulgant with photos today. He then decided it would be better to ask the Mayor.

The most beautiful thing about a positive attitude is how self-evident it is.
