We believe every leader has the opportunity to serve as a role model for future generations and that the way you lead tells a story about your values and creates a leadership legacy.

Course Details

The Leadership Imperative

Leaders are more than titles such as manager, supervisor, or even CEO. Leaders take action. The long-term success of Disney is a direct result of exceptional leaders who took action when needed. What was their foundation? The ability to establish, operationalize, and sustain their values and vision through the lens established by Walt and Roy Disney. In this course you will discover your personal leadership strengths and how your values impact, relate, and communicate within the values and vision of your organization.

Establishing Values and Vision

Aligning your personal values with those of the organization is critical. If not aligned, your leadership may not be compatible with the values and vision of your organization resulting in decreases business results. By proactively aligning your behaviors with the values of your organization, you are establishing values and vision as a leader. You will learn how values are proactively established, and the part they play in aligning values and vision within an organization.

Operationalizing Values and Vision

Leaders must model the values that will contribute to the vibrancy of an organization. This is a critical part of your personal leadership journey. Additionally, by deliberately infusing the organization's culture into aspects of recruiting, hiring, and training, exceptional leaders reinforce the values and vision of the organization. You will learn the importance of effective communication for building healthy teams and the building blocks necessary to infuse cultural values into human resources processes.

Sustaining Values and Vision

Make no mistake: Your organization's values are vulnerable. In fact, if not protected, they will erode over time, and can threaten the entire organization and its future. At Disney, we believe that everyone is a leader. By proactively developing the next generation of leaders, we pass on the values that keep the organization's vision expanding. You will learn to recognize when your values are most at risk and how to preserve them through both comfortable and difficult times.

Leave a Legacy

You will, no matter what, leave a leadership legacy. The question is: What kind do you want to leave? What kind of influence do you want to have on others after you've moved on? If you want to ensure it will have a long-lasting, positive impact on your organization as a whole, start thinking about your legacy today. You will learn what leaving an intentional legacy means, experience opportunities to reflect, and begin to refine your leadership legacy.
