The Disney Approach to Organizational Consulting with Harold Hill and Luis Marrero

organizational consulting Dec 22, 2022

Want to know how to become a highly effective organizational consultant…the Disney way?

Today's guests are my treasured colleagues Harold Hill and Luis Marrero. The three of us worked together as internal consultants at Walt Disney World before starting our consulting and coaching businesses.

I'm not going to lie – this conversation was some of the most fun I have had on the podcast. I had a blast taking a trip down memory lane and deconstructing what it was about our experience as internal consultants at Disney that was so unique and powerful.

You'll hear Harold and Luis validate everything you have listened to me share. They talk about what we did at Disney that was so effective, especially our intentionality around our consulting approach with clients and capturing our best practices into an online program that inspired the eCourse I created called The Organization Development Consultant's Toolbox.

If you want to learn more about the consulting approach we used at Disney and grow our practices, I got a holiday gift for you. I'm launching a brand-new masterclass that will show you how to make money and a difference as an organizational consultant.

If you're like me and use the holidays as a time for reflection and personal development, this masterclass will give you new ideas and structure, plus a chance to get my full Consultant's Toolbox program at $100 off standard prices. Go to www.betsyjordyn.com/consulting-masterclass and sign up now.

The other thing you'll love about my conversation with Harold and Luis is their journey into full-time business ownership. You'll hear how they have built businesses that use the best of who they are and, frankly, who they have always been. You're going to be inspired to see that the purpose, gifting, and passion inside of you truly are the best path to a business that is profitable and that you love.

We also discussed why consultants today are so needed – especially given all the challenges facing senior leaders in this season.

I got the idea for the OD Consultant’s Toolbox almost 10 years ago when I was part of a global community of consultants and kept seeing posts on our online forum like, “I just landed an organization design project – anyone has any tips?” and “I’m creating an assessment – anyone knows what questions to ask?”

And my response was YES!! I have a TON of best practices, tools, frameworks, templates, meeting agendas, assessment questions, and more from my now almost 30 years of experience advising executives in organizations like Disney, and Wyndham.

So, I got to work putting all these resources together into a step-by-step training program and toolkit that even the newest OD consultant could follow to instantly establish themselves as a credible advisor to senior leaders and influence them to lead positive change.

The OD Consultant’s Toolbox is all about landing and delivering strategic consulting engagements that will make a difference for both your career and the organizations you want to help.
