The Ride of a Lifetime

Robert Iger

Overview

Disney is crushing it right now in a lot of different realms. In just the last decade or so, they've acquired Fox, Marvel, ESPN, and others.

Looking back, it appears that Disney's rise to power was almost inevitable, but did you know that it was struggling back in 2005 when Robert Iger took charge as CEO? After expensive failures and drama with the previous CEO in the late 1990s and early 2000s, Iger took Disney to places it had never been before.

The Ride of a Lifetime: Lessons Learned from 15 Years as CEO of the Walt Disney Company shares how Robert Iger rose to his position and brought the company to its current success. You'll find inspiration in Iger's innovative and daring leadership style, and the successes that he brought with it.
