On behalf of the entire BGV Executive Team, I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how much we appreciated your facilitation of our Executive Retreat this past weekend. It was wonderful to finally have the opportunity to meet you in person, and we hope you had a safe trip back to Seattle. We look forward to collaborating more on the upcoming Leadership Summit over the next couple of months, and we are even more excited to have you as the facilitator of this important event for our organization, now that we have seen you in action!
I forgot to mention that I read Disney U on my flights this past weekend and loved every minute of it! Every chapter seemed to draw a parallel to our BGV world, from hiring for traits/training for skills to leadership development to giving back in the community to creating synergy instead of silos and even navigating the difficult journey of losing an iconic leader. I came away feeling more inspired than ever about ways we can improve the training that we offer to every employee and about elevating the quality of our leadership at BGV. I have since asked our entire Exec Team and our Culture & Service Trainer to read Disney U before the end of July in preparation for our time with Doug.
