Lead Like A Visionary.

Vision is the essential piece of the leadership puzzle. Leaders are responsible for taking their teams, their companies, their organizations, and their ideas to the next level. Anything else is maintaining the status quo.

Walt Disney’s vision was consistently challenged while building the park, but he refused to compromise. His dream of providing unmatched customer service and truly unique guest experiences is the key to what has made Disney one of the most successful and beloved organizations in the world.


You Are Only a Leader if You Have Followers.

Walt Disney said, “You can design, create and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.”

True leaders are able to influence others and challenge the members of their organization to live a bigger and better story.

In this keynote, Jeff will teach your team how to create a lead with vision in order to attract the high-quality talent, continuously inspire teams, and work towards your greater mission. Together, you can make magic and accomplish anything!
