The Office of Workforce Solutions is bringing Disney Institute’s renowned professional development program, “Disney’s Approach to Leadership Excellence” program to Lord Fairfax Community College’s Middletown Campus on March 20, 2012.  The full-day event will allow area professionals to learn how a leader’s behaviors are instrumental in conveying values, guiding strategy, and inspiring passion and interest among employees. 

 “This is a great opportunity for business professionals in the LFCC region to participate locally in a Disney Institute experience,” said Jeff James, vice president for Disney Institute.  “It’s a day of Disney training that will offer dozens of easy-to-implement, proven ideas that can help transform an organization.  The program is as appropriate for project managers and intact work teams as it is for leaders and senior executives.”

 The program will be held in the Corron Community Development Center’s Thompson Conference Center and will give participants the chance to explore proven Disney leadership philosophies that encourage values that produce results and are fundamental for organizations to grow and succeed. 

 “In an era where everyone is competing for business and market share, strong leadership is essential for any organization to thrive,” James said.  “This program is made for businesses in any industry looking to build a passionate workforce dedicated to delivering products and services that exceed customer expectations.”

 The Disney Institute learning experience is unique in the world of training.  More than business theory, the program highlights proven Disney business practices that are easily adaptable to organizations in any industry.  Engaging content is presented in an entertaining fashion, providing participants with tools that can literally transform their organizations.

 Program registration is $316 per person (if received by February 15, 2012) and includes all course materials.  Registration after February 16 is $395.  Registration includes a continental breakfast and lunch.
