About This Video

"Find people who are capable and extremely talented. Point them toward a goal and get out of their way."

Recently, The High Calling had the opportunity to speak about leadership and inspiration with Sonny Melendrez, broadcaster, motivational speaker, and author. Click "Show More" to see the transcript.

Transcript: Somebody asked Walt Disney once what it was that he was most proud of.  And he said what it was that he did, was to find people who were capable and extremely talented and then to point them toward a goal and to get out of their way. 

I think that’s what a great leader does.  A great leader is literally someone who finds, sometimes, diamonds in the rough, gets people, marshals them together and makes them the best that they can be—gives them a goal and then becomes their cheerleader.
