Walt Disney is of course known for the empire built up by him. He was like no other able to dream in order to create reality. He used this often an NLP technique, which is now named after him as the Walt Disney strategy.

The Walt Disney Strategy

Because Walt Disney had the power to make dreams a reality, the developer of NLP, Robert Dilts, the thinking strategy of Walt Disney cast in a model. He called this the Walt Disney strategy. This method can be used to create personal renewal, to bring more creativity and innovation in teams or to use in brainstorming sessions.

Walt Disney

Walt Disney had the ability to explore ideas from different perspectives and to see. From these different perspectives he sought synergy. He began the creation of a dream or a vision of a film and / or all possible characters. The next step he took was to see if it was feasible. He weighed all against each other such as available resources, time, resources, etc. After collecting the all the information that was necessary to make the film, or to make the dream a reality. In the third part, he watched from the customer's perspective, the moviegoer. In it he asked critical questions whether the film it was interesting enough, if he was entertaining enough, the movie was too long, too short, the characters were interesting enough and added them to the film something, etc.

Three different positions

Above have you read that Disney made three different processes used to come to realization. These three processes are The Dreamer, The Realist and Critic's called. In the role of the dreamer are unprecedented ideas and goals generated and formulated. There are at this stage no limits. The realist will then see that all elements of the "dream" could be turned into reality. What does it take, what resources you put into this, which people do you need? This questions the realist himself, thus he tries to get a picture of the finished product. The critic will test all these ideas, filtering and refining. Always take into consideration that the critic did not criticize the dreamer or the realist, but the plan. In meetings Disney always used one of these roles, but his staff were not prevail would be aware of the role. Disney tried creating balance in the meeting and often chose the role that was under-represented in a meeting.

How do you apply these strategies to?

Phase one, the dreamer
Actually create three different places. For example, by dropping three seats. For each role a chair. Have a problem or objective in mind you want to work and start on the seat of the dreamer. Let your imagination run wild here. Let's realities, challenges and risks for what they are. They are not at issue here. Brainstorm as if failure is not possible.
Phase 2, the realist
Now sit on the seat of the realist. Now think carefully about what the plan is for the dreamer eyes and imagine the extent to realize that dream. What is then needed to come to realization. You do not look for hazards and obstacles, but still assumes that the dream comes true.
Phase 3, the critic
Switch over to the chair of the critic. The critic looks at what can go wrong. What's missing? What are the problems and obstacles we will encounter? What or who can stop us? Does this plan sufficient? Is it interesting enough, etc.?
Then all phases be gone through again and you do repeatedly until none of the roles has any addition. If all three roles are satisfied with the plan, you can therefore continue to work to come to realization.
