Determining Your Inner Disney

Determining Your Inner Disney

Visionaries inspire change and innovation. Without them, there would be no Disney, no Microsoft, no Nordstrom; the list goes on and on. A visionary’s impact doesn’t stop with huge corporations. This is equally important in organizations of all sizes and can even equate to our personal lives. So, do you have to be a visionary to be successful? Absolutely not, keep reading.

It’s important to note that true visionaries cannot create innovation and change on their own. So why is this important? Let’s take a look at the fascinating journey of Walt Disney and his lesser known brother.

Have you ever heard of Roy Disney? Probably not, but without brother Roy, there would be no Walt Disney empire. Walt was quoted as saying, “If it hadn’t been for my big brother, I’d have been in jail several times for checks bouncing.” Walt imagined and dreamed, while brother Roy worked behind the scenes to build an empire. This is a very typical dynamic between visionaries and integrators. They both complement each other so nicely, but don’t take our word for it.

At the Perfect Planner, we are obsessed with reading. To paraphrase Simon Sinek in his book "Start With Why", the “why-types" (visionaries) set the destination and the “how-types” (integrators) design the route. We’ve read this masterpiece several times and learn something new each time we pick it up. We suggest you pick up a copy as well.

So, are you a visionary or an integrator? Either way, understanding this concept will take you from good to great. We’re excited to see what’s next for you!
