His legacy provides valuable lessons in contributing to a successful team and an ever-growing society. Recently, Disney hosted the Florida Scholastic Press Association Student Press Event at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, where company leaders imparted some of their knowledge on creating magic. Disney focuses on each individual member of the team. The company appreciates what each cast member provides for their guests, and the cast develops a passion for doing their job as a result. Make Sure the Cast is Having a Blast Respecting each individual cast member is especially crucial to developing this Disney-like culture. “Disney’s motto is to take care of cast members,” said Barbara Blake, Disney Youth Programs Content and Operations Manager. “Give the cast an opportunity to perform well. If you support your cast, the guests are happy, and that leads to the rest.” 60 | N extra credit “We are not, nor is there such thing as, a perfect company,” said Joseph Gardner of Disney Institute. “But we have more than our fair share of good, highly effective people who care about what they do.
