Dear Son

Training is tangible, development is not

Famous Disney Cast Member
The Mayor of Main Street USA and a much lesser known Disney Institute Cast Member.

 

Training is tangible, development is not.

Let me say that again.

Training is tangible.

Development is not tangible.

Answered prayers often come disguised

Answered prayers often come disguised.

My goal isn’t to make him a runner.

My goal is to make him an adult.

An adult with a balanced approach to mind, body, spirit, work, and home.

Being on the Cross-Country team would cover all five boxes, with body leading the way, and mind and spirit a close second.

The unanswered prayer is that he keeps finding it plausible to return to practice.

The transformative difference between training and development

Disney Institute Team in Detroit 2011
Stumbled upon this 2011 photo from a Disney Institute engagement in Detroit. Development can be as simple as encouraging others to have fun while they work.

 

The transformative difference between training and development.

Huh?

If you’ve never worked inside a world class organization like Disney where the difference is called out and leveraged, you most likely have no idea the difference exists.

You may think training and development is the same thing.

Rookie mistake as it were.

Here’s the simple difference:

  • Train for compliance (meeting high expectations).
  • Develop for commitment (exceeding high expectations).

Clearer now?

One Question A Day?

What exactly is a student teacher?

Disney World Professional Development Program

 

(photo: A student teacher is someone who is both, no?)

We should be learning all the time as a student.

We should be teaching all the time as a leader.

Mediocrity is thinking a student teacher is a new, rookie teacher, just getting started.
