6 Exercises To Strengthen Compassionate Leadership

6 Exercises To Strengthen Compassionate Leadership
Disney has been known for its litigious nature in the past, going so far as to change copyright law in order to keep Mickey Mouse out of public domain. That's why it's kind of weird that a movie filmed at Disney World, unapproved by the Mouse House, even exists at all. After making a splash at Sundance this year, though, the intriguing Escape From Tomorrow appears to be heading for a theatrical release--and the first trailer is now online. First-time director Randy Moore shot the film at the Florida theme park, guerrilla-style, over a series of visits with his crew and an unknown cast. Details of the terms Moore worked out with Disney remain under wraps for now, but the controversial matter seems to be settled. While the circumstances surrounding Escape's production have dominated the conversation thus far, with the release of this trailer, perhaps talk will shift to the movie itself.

Can Don Draper Pivot? Lessons From Second-Chance CEOs Howard Schultz, Steve Jobs, And Mickey Drexler We’ve watched him show up intoxicated (from liquor or sex, or both), yet seamlessly spin a captivating pitch for anything from cigarettes and baked beans to a slide carousel and a Chevy. But as Mad Men’s sixth season drew to a close, Don Draper’s pitching prowess took a sharp detour into a dark night of the soul--at the conference table with potential new client Hershey’s.

Zaha Hadid's sport stadiums: 'Too big, too expensive, too much like a vagina' One looks like a futuristic bicycle helmet, stretched across its Tokyo site in an aerodynamic sweep. The other has been said to resemble a vagina, rising out of the Qatari desert in a great vulvic bulge. Both are in fact sinuous sporting stadiums by the London-based Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid, who is facing calls for her exuberant designs to be scaled back. This week Japanese sports officials finally bowed to growing criticism that Hadid's scheme for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic stadium was too big and too expensive, saying they would shrink the design by a quarter.
