Walt Disney's Three Types Of People

According to Walt Disney, there are 3 types of people:

  1. The Well Poisoner. The Well Poisoner discourages you, stomps on your creativity and tells you what you can't do. 
  2. The Second type is the Lawn Mower. The Lawn mower is well intended but self absorbed. They are more concerned with their own needs, their own lawns and never leave their yard to help someone else. 
  3. Finally, there is the Life Enhancer. They reach out to others and lift them up. They encourage others and inspire greatness. 
Leadership guru John Maxwell suggests we ask ourselves: "Am I different things to different people?" In other words are you a life enhancer to a recruit but a lawn mower to your staff? Perhaps you are life enhancers to those you agree with but well poisoners to those who think differently. Worth thinking about!

Thought for the week:

When you're curious, you find lots of interesting things to do.--Walt Disney
