Creating Disney Magic podcast Lee Cockerell Jody MaberryToday, many people are skeptical of leadership. How can you overcome this?

People will remain skeptical until you build trust. You have to show you are credible, reliable, do what you say you are going to do, keep your promises. That is how you build trust and begin to create an environment where people are not skeptical of leadership.

Creating Disney Magic podcast Lee Cockerell Jody MaberryIs there an “It” factor? Do some leaders just get it?

Yes, some leaders have it and some don’t. But it is possible for you to learn it, enhance it, build it. You have to understand your impact on the people around you and consider leaving a legacy before you can get the It factor.

If you focus on it, you will eventually get it.

In this episode we mention Carol Quinn and her book, Don’t Hire Anyone Without Me
