Who Am I?
MEET DR. REBECCA MORGAN // FOUNDER & LEAD TRAINER
OF THE AWESOME LEADER LEAGUE – T.A.L.L.
Hi, I’m Rebecca, a former international award-winning Disney leader, mother of a retired ex-racing greyhound named Landon “LL Cool Grey”, a doctor like Indiana Jones, and founder of The Awesome Leader League.
But this was not always me.
ONCE UPON A TIME …
(How all good stories start, right?)
I was a 24-year-old who couldn’t keep a house plant alive.
I went from embroidering names on Mickey Mouse ears outside of Cinderella Castle to being responsible for over 400 employees at Epcot.
My stress and pressure levels were off the charts! I had to make decisions, create strategies, influence, collaborate, hire, fire, and keep a multi-million dollar operation running with people who were once my peers — old enough to be my parents, my grandparents, and younger than my sister — all looking to me as the one in charge.
After a lot of lessons learned, I went on to lead teams of all shapes and sizes and developed tens of thousands of leaders and managers around the world at all levels at the Walt Disney Company through the Disney University and supported external professionals and organizations ranging from startups to Fortune 500 companies with the Disney Institute.
I believe in my bones my practical people-centered approach based on deep experience and respected research rooted in the link between people and profits will transform managers and their teams.
So much so that I was recognized with a handful of Mousecars, which is the Disney version of an Academy Award, as well as receiving a Disney Lifetime Achievement Award during my career.
What’s the point of all that if you’re not passing it on to someone else?
My current mission is to develop the next generation of confident, effective, people-centered managers and leaders. That’s pretty exciting!
Sharing everything I know about leadership qualities that no one ever teaches you. The traits of a leader that I wish everyone knew because it’s so useful.
The things I wish someone told me earlier in my career and the leadership skills I wish I had learned earlier since they would have helped me become more confident with less hurry and worry. I wrote it all down in The Awesome Leader’s Guide: People First. How you can focus your limited time, energy, and efforts to transform employee engagement, build repeat customers, and delight stakeholders.
I created The Ultimate Resource and Unique Collection of Training for Leaders and you’re invited to join The Awesome Leader League (T.A.L.L.).
Where people with a head for business and a heart for serving others build confidence, knowledge, and leadership skills. Without EVER being a soul-sucking bosshole.
