Although you have to stay grounded in reality when running a meeting, savvy leaders can learn a lot from a classic Disney tale, according to one psychologist. Sharon Livingston, Ph.D. says that by identifying which of the seven dwarfs each employee most closely resembles, leaders can maximize creativity, cooperation, and enthusiasm in group meetings."Years ago after conducting hundreds of focus groups, it struck me that the personality types described in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs were the same personality types I encountered in my groups, day in and day out," says Dr. Livingston, an expert in qualitative market research and president of the Livingston Group for Marketing in Londonderry, NH.
