The Disney Way, 3rd Edition

By Bill Capodagli and Lynn Jackson

For millions of people around the world, just summoning up the word “Disney” stirs up excitement.

Regardless of how old you are, the Disney experience holds a place in the imagination that promises and delivers magic – and what constitutes that magic is a success credo that began with Walt Disney himself. The sharing, teaching, and practical use of “Dream, Believe, Dare, Do” – is The Disney Way.

In this newly expanded third edition of THE DISNEY WAY, the authors feature organizations including the town of Grand Lake, Colorado. Grand Lake is an example of Disney-like teamwork – a place where “unifiers work together and make conscious choices that evaluate their dreams and the dreams of others. The Grand Lake Center was born. The Center’s signature programs are based on the principles of The Disney Way, and a wide-range of other educational opportunities will be offered in the spring and fall of each year, including lodging packages. The Grand Lake Center has become the symbol of a
revitalization of an entire region, anchored in a historic community located at the western gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park and known as “The Soul of the Rockies.”

Excerpt from the new edition says about Grand Lake...

Henry David Thoreau said, "I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by conscious endeavor."  Thoreau's quote need not only apply to a single individual.  In fact, one entire community - Grand Lake, Colorado - has proven that they, as a team, have an "unquestionable ability" to "elevate" the lives of so many through a team-based "conscious endeavor."  Most significantly, the results are far beyond what any of the members could have done on their own."
