Businessweek Magazine is running an article that looks at Disney CEO Bob Iger’s management style. How does he do it? By being the anti-Eisner.
Iger, in short, is the Un-Eisner. He represents the new buttoned-down Hollywood–the anti-mogul in an industry where egos blot out the sunshine. "Bob lets [the person] who can handle the job get it done," says Jobs, who sits on the board and is Disney’s single largest shareholder. "It’s not [about grabbing] headlines. That’s rare in that town."
This is the most positive article I’ve read in quite some time. Hopefully these changes will trickle down through the ranks and change can begin to undo some of the damage Eisner did throughout the company during the last decade of his reign.
