What’s on your bookshelf for reading this summer?
Here’s a couple of new books for your consideration:
Who’s the Leader of the Club: Walt Disney’s Leadership Lessons, by Jim Korkis
Disney’s Hollywood Studios: From Show Biz to Your Biz, by J. Jeff Kober
Korkis and Kober are no strangers to the Disney organization – both are former Cast Members, and both have written extensively about various aspects of Disney.
Who’s the Leader of the Club is Korkis’ first venture into a business application of his vast knowledge of all things Disney, and he certainly doesn’t disappoint. He provides a section on Disney and Leadership and then follows that with seven leadership lessons as exemplified by Walt Disney. The final section is a collection of quotes, bad leadership examples, and stories by and about Walt Disney’s leadership.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios is Kober’s second Disney-specific book with a business theme, and takes the reader “behind-the-camera” to understand and apply the Disney magic to any organization. The book contains over forty chapters of park history, Disney trivia, and business best practices designed to help your organization get ready for its closeup.
Remember: Leaders are Readers!
