Disney Institute Program For Elevate Together

Disney Institute brought its renowned professional development course, Disney’s Foundations of Business Excellence, to the Elevate Together community in March 2022. The workshop helped attendees begin to understand the power of leadership values, discover how customer loyalty can be established, and gained insight into how organizational culture is strengthened.

Participants gained an awareness of the systems and processes that can make exceptional customer service achievable and learned how to integrate personal creativity and organizational processes to support continuous improvement within their organization. This Disney Institute training uses business insights and time-tested examples from Disney parks and resorts to inspire individuals and organizations to enhance their own customer experience using Disney principles as their guide.
