Description

Brought to you by Penguin.

The CEO of Disney, one of Time’s most influential people of 2019, shares the ideas and values he embraced to reinvent one of the most beloved companies in the world and inspire the people who bring the magic to life.

Robert Iger became CEO of the Walt Disney Company in 2005, during a difficult time. Morale had deteriorated, competition was intense and technology was changing faster than at any time in the company’s history. His vision came down to three clear ideas: Recommit to the concept that quality matters, embrace technology instead of fighting it and think bigger, think global and turn Disney into a stronger brand in international markets.

Fourteen years later, Disney is the largest, most respected media company in the world, counting Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm and 21st Century Fox among its properties. Its value is nearly five times what it was when Iger took over and he is recognised as one of the most innovative and successful CEOs of our era.

In The Ride of a Lifetime, Robert Iger shares the lessons he’s learned while running Disney and leading its 200,000 employees and he explores the principles that are necessary for true leadership, including:

  • Optimism. Even in the face of difficulty, an optimistic leader will find the path toward the best possible outcome and focus on that, rather than give in to pessimism and blaming.
  • Courage. Leaders have to be willing to take risks and place big bets. Fear of failure destroys creativity.
  • Decisiveness. All decisions, no matter how difficult, can be made on a timely basis. Indecisiveness is both wasteful and destructive to morale.
  • Fairness. Treat people decently, with empathy and be accessible to them.

This book is about the relentless curiosity that has driven Iger for 45 years, since the day he started as the lowliest studio grunt at ABC. It’s also about thoughtfulness and respect and a decency-over-dollars approach that has become the bedrock of every project and partnership Iger pursues, from a deep friendship with Steve Jobs in his final years to an abiding love of the Star Wars mythology.

Fantastic story, coloured with humble lessons

I appreciated R.Iger’s human values assimilated to his multiple roles at Disney and elsewhere: all of them honest and transparent, which he seems to share within his organisation, with his business partners and people he guides.

Authenticity and Humility

Through out the story it is clear that Robert is true to himself, he knows his strengths and weaknesses and shares it wit us. He exuded humility better explained in our country as Ubuntu. Wether it’s with Mr Murdock or his employees. His Values are consistent. Thank you at 62 and semi retired giving back to our youth, it resonated with me. I learned a lot. I had some of my own leadership style reinforced.

Amazing book on leadership and life lessons

If I can summarise, the book is like having a mentor that assists you through their own experience of life and business to make sense of the world, leadership together with what it takes to create a successful business. It also gives one a view of what Disney is all about. I had little knowledge to the scope Of the business and the priority of the organisation but through Robert Iger book. I can see myself as a future investor in this organisation.

Excellent book on leadership.

Such a great book for those who are career minded no matter the industry. In a world that is changing faster than ever Robert Iger succeeds in putting over that a company is not anything if it’s not it’s people, embracing technology is not optional and having the courage to push the limits is essential.

The Ride of a Lifetime was also a great listen.

It was really interesting to get an insiders perspective on the recent history of Disney. And valuable to get to know Robert Igor, one of the great corporate leaders of our time.

Phänomenale Biographie

Bob Iger. Eine faszinierende, schöpferische Persönlichkeit erzählt eine fantastische Geschichte seiner beruflichen Wahlen und des damit einhergehenden Weges. Er gibt uns einen tiefen Einblick in seine Glaubenssystem und Ratschläge für echte Führungspersönlichkeit. Bob tut dies auf eine unfassbar demütige und dankbare Weise ohne sich selbst je für seine Entscheidungen zu sehr zu loben. Ich habe das Hörbuch selbst in 3 Tagen verschlungen.
