Vokes shared a bunch of Lean books with me and they were very helpful, I’d love pay it forward. Here’s one to start…just finished it on the way home from Ruff Sawn! Simon Lloyd – Springwater Woodcraft.
The secret for creating “magic” in our careers, our organizations, and our lives is simple: outstanding leadership—the kind that inspires employees, delights customers, and achieves extraordinary business results.
No one knows more about this kind of leadership than Lee Cockerell, the man who ran Walt Disney World® Resort operations for over a decade. And in Creating Magic, he shares the leadership principles that not only guided his own journey from a poor farm boy in Oklahoma to the head of operations for a multibillion dollar enterprise, but that also soon came to form the cultural bedrock of the world’s number one vacation destination. But as Lee demonstrates, great leadership isn’t about mastering impossibly complex management theories. We can all become outstanding leaders by following the ten practical, common sense strategies outlined in this remarkable book. As straightforward as they are profound, these leadership lessons include:
- Everyone is important.
- Make your people your brand.
- Burn the free fuel: appreciation, recognition, and encouragement.
- Give people a purpose, not just a job.
