If you only read one book on leadership skills in your lifetime, it should probably be this one. Lee Cockerell developed the Disney Institutes leadership strategies course, and "Creating Magic" outlines the 10 key principles from the course -- along with practical applications for all industries. Ideas like RAVE (respect, appreciate, value everyone) and ARE (appreciate, respect, encourage) can be implemented at no cost whatsoever, for example, and buy infinite goodwill and morale in the office.The book is entertaining and well-written. The concepts Cockerell shares can be applied not only to one's business life but also at home, in the community, houses of worship, etc. Brilliantly executed and an absolute delight.
