The 4 keys to “Mickey Mouse” Leadership
Below you can learn all about what the keys of Walt Disneys “Mickey Mouse” leadership according to Forbes.com. Four helpful advises to think about when you develop your customer first strategy and when you want your team to follow your customer satisfaction strategy.
Chase your dream: Or, as Walt Disney might have put it, “wish upon a star.” Walt wanted to entertain whole families. And he did just that better than anyone else has ever done for more than 30 years.
Believe in yourself: Every time Disney succeeded, he used that success as the building block for the next big risk, the next big idea. The fact that no one else had done it was never an obstacle to Disney.
Go Big or Go Home: In Disney’s case, to paraphrase an old Disney ad campaign — Disney went big and then went to Walt Disney World. His wife and brother tried to persuade him to stop Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. He kept going. People thought he was crazy to buy thousands of acres of a swamp near Orlando. Most people had never heard of Orlando. They’ve heard of it now.
Don’t lose sight of what you are: Walt Disney said, “I only hope that we don’t lose sight of one thing — that it was all started by a mouse.”
