Organizational Spirit

West Chester University Sig Ep House
West Chester University Sig Ep House. Lived on second floor for a year.

From a lifetime at Disney, particularly the last 15 years at Disney Institute, i saw first hand from countless (about 2,000) looks inside industries and organizations, that an overwhelming majority are like a ship without a rudder.

No rudder.

No foundational, guiding organizational values.

Rarer still, i astonishingly discovered, are organizations where the values are actually defined, not simply implied.

ORCHIDB

  • Openness
  • Respect
  • Courage
  • Honesty
  • Integrity
  • Diversity
  • Balance

Not until the early 1990’s did we actually have written down leadership values.

A list is a great start, but ineffective without agreed upon definitions.

We did that.

We defined all seven core Disney leadership values.

It changed everything.

For the first time, we all had clear organizational expectations around behaviors.

Behaviors, not human resources concepts or theories.

Perhaps sometime after the Disney Leadership Book is published i will be able to refer you to the page(s) where our ORCHIDB values are explained in detail.

The Other Side

Are you the face of your belief?

Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which he looks compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good. Yours are the hands through which he blesses all the world. Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, yours are the eyes, you are his body. Christ has no body now on earth but yours.

Mother Theresa

This Might Change Your Life

Weakness for bad news

Trust yourself and take action. You are in charge as the CEO of You, Inc.

The media you consume, the people you converse with, the language you use, your outlook on our world, all of these feed lightness or darkness.

Optimism or pessimism.

You are in charge.

Be a CEO who runs a great company life.

Invisible work

We have affinity to remarkable brands and franchises. Same concept works with spiritual architecture. Buddhism, Islam, Christianity, Etc.

Here’s a behind the scenes (backstage as we say at Disney) look at how to do seemingly “impossible” work – like achieving balance in your life.

Emotional labor.

Over-focusing.

Being intentional.

All those things – the invisible work no one sees, knows, nor believes exists.

Magic.

.think .differently

Habits and rituals.

Extra inches.

All day.

Every day.

Invisible work.
