Despite the disappointments Walt Disney encountered in developing his talent, he never gave up. B. Referring to one incident, Williams and Denney remarked that “Another early crisis in Walt Disney’s career tested his leadership ability and revealed what authentic leadership is all about. There is much we can learn about leadership by emulating Walt’s strengths and avoiding his mistakes” (73). II. As a producer Walt Disney had not only perfected the art of creating visual representations for his animations, but he could also transfer the same skills in the actual vocals. As a result, Walt Disney was able to demonstrate to the world that his passion for animation was inherent by giving ‘real life’ to the visual animated objects. A.
