08 Aug The Ride of a Lifetime: Lessons Learned from 15 Years as CEO of the Walt Disney Company | Bob Iger
2020: Book #20
“To tell great stories, you need great talent.”
That was a guiding principle for Bob Iger.
Iger was the CEO of the Walt Disney Company for 15 years.
His book, “The Ride of a Lifetime: Lessons Learned from 15 Years as CEO of the Walt Disney Company” is a must read for anyone who is a leader or aspires to be one.
You get a sneak peek behind the curtain of leadership.
You read about leaders who mentored Iger and others who pushed him aside.
He takes you along as he negotiates to acquire Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars.
There are also moments of great sadness as he shares about why he had to fire some people.
This is a true leadership book.
I truly enjoyed this book.
I give it 3.5 stars out of a possible 5.
That’s book #20 for 2020.
32 more to go.
Leaders are readers.
If you want to be a better leader…be a reader.
