The world is always in need of exceptional leaders, but for someone who has little experience or says “I’m not a natural leader”, what do they do?Today’s guest, former VP of the Magic Kingdom and renowned keynote speaker Dan Cockerell, shows us that leading others begins with leading yourself. In this new episode, Tom sits down with Dan to discuss how Dan flips the “life’s a marathon” analogy on its head, why Dan refuses to micro-manage anybody, and what Dan does every single day to keep his life full of magic.

“You, as a leader, have to take an interest in your people and see the job from their point of view.”
