#DThink Twitter Chat Recap: Success Through Values-Infused Leadership

November 05, 2015 by Bruce Jones, Senior Programming Director, Disney Institute

At Disney Institute, we have seen that the key to great leadership is a proactive, values-infused approach—one in which a leader cultivates success by making values foundational to their personal actions and decision-making.

This thinking, of course, is deeply rooted in the knowledge and expertise we have gained throughout our many years of conducting leadership training and professional development courses for the world’s top companies and business professionals, as well as in the demonstrated success of The Walt Disney Company itself. After all, our co-founder Roy Disney once said: “It’s easy to make decisions when you know what your values are.”

Values-infused leaders recognize the critical importance of values, and they proactively work to establish, operationalize and sustain those values throughout the organization using the four considerations of great leadership as their guide. 

During our recent #DThink Twitter Chat (held the first Wednesday of each month), we had excellent dialogue with our Twitter community about values-infused leadership. A number of fantastic insights were shared throughout the chat. 

Read the full chat here, or below we have shared a few highlights from the discussion:
