LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla., Oct. 26 — The 2010 schedule for Disney Institute open enrollment programs is now available at www.disneyinstitute.com. Located under the Web site’s “Events” tab, the extended calendar offers increased flexibility for professionals who want to book training through the end of the coming year.
Open-enrollment programs include three- and five-day programs available at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., and a series of one-day programs offered at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif. One- and three-day programs are dedicated to specific topics such as quality service, leadership excellence, people management, brand loyalty, and inspiring creativity. The five-day programs dedicate a day to each of the five core Disney Institute curricula.
Open-enrollment programs take participants onstage and behind-the-scenes of Disney locations. Meeting with Disney leaders, they discover proven best practices from The Walt Disney Company that are easily adaptable to their organizations.
“Professional development is more important than ever as businesses look for ways to recover from the recession,” said Jeff James, vice president, Disney Institute. “By making our schedule available for online booking through the end of next year, we’re helping leaders and managers get the training that they and their teams need to gain a competitive edge.”
Open enrollment programs at Disney Institute are ideal for leaders, managers, small-businesses owners and entrepreneurs looking to incorporate innovative ideas and practices into their organizations. They are also helpful as a primer for senior corporate executives who have interest in working with Disney Institute on customized solutions for their organizations.
“We make it easy and affordable for anyone – no matter the size of their organization – to learn from our more than 80 years of business experience and incorporate those lessons into their business,” said James.
