Always.

As in always.

Dream big.

Get there.

Stay there.

Always.

Leaders

Vision

Every leader can articulate their vision in a clear, concise, compelling way to their direct reports, their peers, and their boss.

 

Involvement

Every leader can articulate, to anyone, the difference between training for compliance and developing for commitment.

Structure and processes are key.

 

Accountability

Every leader uses the employee-customer-business three-legged stool. Every leader uses the technical-managerial-behavioral three-legged stool.

Metrics and expectations are prioritized.

 

Commitment

Every leader spends a corporately agreed upon amount of face-time with direct reports. Front-line leaders would be 80% minimum.

Every leader uses a corporate-wide Continuous Improvement Process.

Every leader uses a corporately-approved three-tiered recognition structure: Employee to employee, leader to employee, company to employee.

Every leader completes a corporately approved leadership development session, including a 360 evaluation from boss, self, peers, direct reports (or partner if no DR).

Is there a silver bullet for leadership? Yes. And it has nothing to do with what we say. One small change in how we see ourselves is all it takes to see what the rest of our team sees. And one small change in our behavior – something we start doing or something we stop doing – can transform us. Learn more.

(We judge ourselves by our intentions. others judge us by our behaviors.)

Great Disney leaders are proactive

Censorship
The worst part of anything, including leadership, is always going to divide people.

 

Great leaders are proactive.

Fundamentally, they act rather than react.

Profoundly simple, simply profound.

Good and very good leaders are more like managers – they’re great at (reacting) putting out fires.

Both leader categories live with deeply embedded habits.

The work leading to change rarely happens this week (or last week).

Unlikely too, that it will happen next week.

Why?

Because the work that drives change can’t happen now, or recently, or soon.

Why?

Because there are too many urgent things today. And there were too many yesterday, and if history has a way of repeating itself, urgent will prevail tomorrow (like it always does).

Urgent and change are strangers.
