I was listening (audiobook reading) to former CEO of Walt Disney Corporation, Bob Iger’s new book this weekend. The Ride of a Lifetime. He has some amazing stories, as expected.
One of many hit home with me on leadership.
His former boss in his early career with Disney had some big celebrity relationships and he kept interrupting important 1:1 meetings when calls would come in from people like Tom Cruise and President Clinton.
Meeting after meeting was rescheduled or abbreviated. It happened to many people.
Managing your time and respecting others’ times is a vital thing to do as a manager.
You have to sit through meetings you might otherwise ignore. You have to listen and learn.
How you show up in front of people impacts how they will show up for you.
I highly recommend reading his book.
The kick in the pants you need. Sign-up for a better start to your work day.
