Week 1

This article was well written. I was able to find a few topics that I find to be important on a work group. Ethics, self-competency, diversity and have better communication are some of the things I like to highlight. Those are some of the leadership abilities that I find most essential to a leader. Mr. Donahoe is an effective leader because he understands all of those principals. There is a big different from be a manager to be a leader. A Manager is the person responsible for planning and directing the work of a group of individuals, monitoring their work, and taking corrective action when necessary. (F. John Reh) A leader is someone that can see ahead of everyone of his time. Is someone that has a vision and knows the steps that everyone must take to be where he wants all to be. I decided to comment about Walt Disney because on my opinion he was a good example of a leader. I would like to comment in three attributes that I have learn from him. * Innovation: As long as there is imagination left in the world, Disneyland will never be complete.(Walt Disney) The Idea that you can always do better helped the company to be creative and grow more and more. * Self-competency: I don't make pictures just to make money. I make money to make more pictures.(Walt Disney) To have self-competency you most like what you do. You need to have passion for your work so you can always give the best of your efforts. * Ethics: It does not matter what color, age, sex, or country you come from, Walt Disney made all of us to feel the same about our dreams. He created a place in this world that shares the message that we are all equal.
