[MUSIC PLAYING] - When I look into the future, I try to look as far ahead as I possibly can with some degree of clarity. Obviously, the farther out you look, the less clarity there is. And at some point, you've got to know when to stop. In other words, what are the limits of future thinking and, in effect, what are the limits in terms of loss of clarity? I actually believe that one of the things a leader has to do in terms of managing people who are required to think about the future is try to set some kind of parameters-- meaning we're looking into the future, but we're only looking five years, or we're looking into the future, but let's have a 10-year horizon. If you just say to people, "We need to look into the future," obviously they would ask-- they should ask the question, well, what does that mean? How far do we go? And if you're a leader and you simply say, "Well, I don't know, just look ahead," that's meaningless and, I think, confusing and difficult for people to accept. But in leading people to think about the long term, it's very, very important to define what the long term means. [MUSIC PLAYING] My greatest hope for the next generation of business leaders is that they bring to the job great integrity and they achieve things that ultimately create a better world, creating more opportunity for people and a future that looks brighter than the present. - To infinity and beyond!

So many pearls of wisdom included in this master class with Bob Iger. He is clearly a person of integrity, intelligence and grace under pressure. It was interesting that the first thing he included is good habits and self care. 10 pages of notes and reflections as I watched and lots to apply to my workplace. Thanks for doing this Mr. Iger!
Bob Iger's lessons were perfectly calibrated for easy understanding on complex business topics. Will probably watch them again.
Many many good points. So far it was one of the best Masterclass. Really thought provoking. Thank you!
It was great again to watch how truly successful people are not the ones that shout and try to impress but rather those who stay composed, self-reflect, think counter-intuitively and communicate with ease
