“It’s not the magic that makes it work; it’s the way we work that makes it magic.”

The secret for creating “magic” in our careers, our organizations, and our lives is simple: outstanding leadership—the kind that inspires employees, delights customers, and achieves extraordinary business results.

No one knows more about this kind of leadership than Lee Cockerell, the man who ran Walt Disney World® Resort operations for over a decade. And in Creating Magic, he shares the leadership principles that not only guided his own journey from a poor farm boy in Oklahoma to the head of operations for a multibillion dollar enterprise, but that also soon came to form the cultural bedrock of the world’s number one vacation destination. But as Lee demonstrates, great leadership isn’t about mastering impossibly complex management theories. We can all become outstanding leaders by following the ten practical, common sense strategies outlined in this remarkable book. As straightforward as they are profound, these leadership lessons include:

  • Everyone is important.
  • Make your people your brand.
  • Burn the free fuel: appreciation, recognition, and encouragement.
  • Give people a purpose, not just a job.

Combining surprising business wisdom with insightful and entertaining stories from Lee’s four decades on the front lines of some of the world’s best-run companies, Creating Magic shows all of us—from small business owners to managers at every level—how to become better leaders by infusing quality, character, courage, enthusiasm, and integrity into our workplace and into our lives.

    " I really enjoyed this book. I thought that it was a great way to get motivated as a leader and there were many great tips to follow as a leader. Some points in the book were often reiterated to the extent of boredom. However, overall it was a great read. "

    " This was an excellent book with wonderful tips on not only leadership, but how to become a better employee if you are not at the top. Also enjoyed the fun "insider tips" on how such a famous industry like Disney works. Lee's motivational words have made me want to become a great leader someday, no matter what the position. "
