Chat with Disney Institute facilitator, Ben Reed

November 06, 2012 by Bruce Jones, Programming Director, Disney Institute

“At Disney, we believe that everyone has the potential to be a leader, regardless of job title.” It was this type of thinking that landed Ben Reed at Disney Institute, where he currently serves as a senior facilitator.

Ben says that most successes as well as problems in an organization can be traced back to leadership. Strong leadership is essential for an organization to reach its goals.

This passion for understanding has given Ben the opportunity to venture a mile underground into a gold mine, visit a manufacturing facility of industrial vehicles and even learn how to make food for a restaurant chain.

“It’s exciting to see how our Disney Institute principles help these businesses perform.”

    Hi Ben, Thanks for this open forum. I have a couple of questions for you: 1) When a leader starts growing, and detaches from the group of other teammates working with him, what are the best strategies to ensure he/her maintains good communication with his former group? 2) Leadership usually brings stress and, sometimes, results in lashing out to other coworkers. What are some ways that leaders cope with stressful situations that help prevent lashing out? 3) In my perspective a true leader can help other people develop their skills as well and become leaders themselves; do you have some guidance/suggestions on how to help coworkers who are burned out or ostrasized to get their spirit back up? Thanks!
