Cornerstone Chamber Brings Disney Leadership Excellence Training to SWM

Having recognized the need for ongoing leadership training and professional development opportunities in Michigan’s Great Southwest, Cornerstone Chamber of Commerce will take the next step in building their portfolio of leadership training options next spring when they introduce the region to the Disney Approach to Leadership Excellence.

Following closely on the heels of the Chamber’s partnership with the Michigan’s Great Southwest Strategic Leadership Council’s Leadership Accelerator Program and the Ralph Nichols Group Dale Carnegie Training, the Chamber announced today that the Disney Institute will bring its renowned professional development course, Disney’s Approach to Leadership Excellence, to St. Joseph on Thursday, March 22, 2018.

The  one-day event will help area professionals explore how they could begin to identify the personal and organizational values that drive them as a leader to carry out their organization’s vision and their role in operationalizing culture-building and team support.

This day of Disney Institute training uses business insights and time-tested examples from Disney parks and resorts worldwide to inspire individuals and organizations to enhance their own customer experience using Disney principles as their guide.
