“Remember: everyone is important.”
Can you imagine being in charge of 40,000 employees?
How about running operations at Disney World?
Or traveling the world as a renowned public speaker AFTER you retire?
Today’s guest on The School of Greatness has done all of these and he’s not stopping anytime soon.
Lee Cockerell is a powerhouse of energy, wisdom, and service and it was my privilege to interview him on this episode.
Lee has not only led thousands at companies like Disney, but he has written several books on the lessons he has learned and applied through the years as a stand out leader and manager. (Surprise fact: he dropped out of college because he says he wasn’t smart enough.)
On today's 5-minute Friday, Lewis discusses the School of Greatness team's new wellness goals, and why keeping your word to yourself is the most important commitment. -Mel Robbins unveils a new way to think about confidence: https://lewishowes.com/970 -This Les Brown interview is so powerful: https://lewishowes.com/971
