Why did Walt Disney build Disneyland?
Because he wanted one!
Can success really be that simple? It can be when you know what you want and you are willing to do what it takes to get there. Disneyland began as one man’s dream on a park bench one Saturday afternoon. Today, it is a symbol of success and an example of entrepreneurial leadership around the world. In Jeff Barnes’ The Wisdom of Walt, discover how Walt Disney took action to transform his dreams into the concrete reality we still benefit from sixty years later.
I was lucky enough to receive a copy of this lovely book by Jeffrey A. Barnes. I have to say this book was a wonderful read. If you’ve ever wanted to explore the leadership side of Walt and his company than this book is perfect for you.
The Wisdom of Walt explores the leadership lessons anyone can learn from the Walt Disney Company and parks. Fans of books like The Secret I think will take an exceptional liking to this book. Jeff Barnes writes an exquisite story about life and what we can learn from the happiest place on earth even if we think there is nothing to be learned from such a place.
I highly recommend the book for anyone age 12 and up!
