We rejoin the conversation with Lee Cockerell for part 2 of Lessons on Leadership. In today's episode, Lee takes us through his experience from straight out of the service, surviving on smuggled-out K rations to Executive Vice President of Operations one of the largest and beloved corporations in the world, Walt Disney World ® Resort. Along the way, he learned highly valuable lessons about what works, and more importantly, what doesn't work and loves sharing this with others who sincerely seek to sharpen their leadership skills.
