The Ride of a Lifetime: Lessons Learned from 15 Years as CEO of the Walt Disney Company

Author: Robert Iger

About the author: As Chairman & CEO of the Walt Disney Company, Robert Iger began his career as the lowliest grunt at ABC. After becoming the CEO in 2005, he led Disney to become the largest, most-respected media company in the world. The principles that he lives/leads by are detailed in his fascinating autobiography.  

About the book: Robert Iger’s “ride” to the top was driven by curiosity and seven other principles of leadership presented in his autobiography. The stories and examples in this book will resonate with all HSR™ practitioners as Mr. Iger is known to choose thoughtfulness, respect, and decency-over dollars approach. He is indeed what we would call a Conscious Leader. Beginning with his tearful approach to the parents of the two-year-old boy killed by the alligator at Disney World in 2016, Robert Iger allows all to see his vulnerability and what it takes to be a great leader–and human.
