There was one moment in my keynote speech where he heard something that prompted watery eyes. It may have been a blind spot.


Involvement, Disney-style…

What’s the difference between training and development?

What’s the difference between compliance and commitment?

Not developing your people is criminal.

Development is not training. Development can be as simple as telling someone about a glaring and longterm blindspot – it happened to me in 2008 and it changed the trajectory of my Disney career.
