MIDDLETOWN — Software development firm employee Lynn McElhaney has made four trips to Disney without leaving the state.
Instead of going to Orlando, she has been coming to Lord Fairfax Community College, where Workforce Solutions hosted its fourth annual Disney Institute on Tuesday.
“I was one of the few that said, ‘Yes, I’ve been here all four years,’” said McElhaney, who works for a data integration firm in Reston. “I always come away with at least one really good idea that can change something in our company.”
Disney Institute senior facilitators Tom Madden and Mike McLean hope that of the six or seven values they present, attendees can take away three or four that will work at their own companies.
“Disney is a business just like anyone else when you strip away the magic and so on,” Madden said during a lunch break Tuesday. “We have strong business principles around leadership, around creativity and innovation and brand loyalty that really can be adapted by virtually any organization.”
Madden said the institute is put on all over the world.
About 160 people attended Tuesday’s event, said Christine Kriz, business and industry training coordinator for Workforce Solutions.
The cost of the session was $495 a person, although there were discounts for people who had attended past institutes and for companies sending more than one employee. Continue reading Disney Institute Pays Off For Attendees
