Leadership Speaker’s Series

11-29_speakers_chrischapman
 

The Leadership Speaker’s Series is a unique class offering for College Program Participants at the Disneyland Resort to hear senior leaders share their stories of challenges and triumphs as a leader. We would like them to learn what each speaker believes makes a good leader, how experiences are translated into leadership skills, and teachable moments from the speaker’s experiences. By learning how our successful leaders have made a difference as leaders in their work and community, the participants will discover success strategies they can apply to their own lives and careers.

We realize that by providing College Program participants with the opportunity to learn through the ideas of great leaders, we are recognizing the dedication and perseverance necessary to achieve academic success while also taking on individual leadership roles. Our hope is that this Speaker’s Series will encourage all Participants to nurture the leadership potential within themselves and foster the desire to learn from those around them. This course meets once per week for two to three hours in length, for a total of ten weeks.

What students say about Leadership Speaker’s Series:

  • One thing that I will never forget about Leadership Speaker’s Series was the people we had the opportunity to meet with, listen to their life journeys and ask them anything we wanted to. Being in the Disney College Program is a great experience all together, but this class opens up your mind to your possible career options with Disney and potential path ways in the program that can be an amazing networking possibility. With each class I attended I got the same feeling in my head as well as my heart of “this IS an amazing opportunity and we get to spend three hours a week with some of the most important people in one of the greatest company’s – Disney!”

 

What does the Instructor say about the course?
