In "Talk with the Legends", at the WDF Museum, Richard Sherman said that when Walt assigned them a task, it became the most important thing in the world; all they wanted was to please Walt. But Walt wanted to hear their opinions because he wanted them to also please themselves with what they did. Richard remarked that people in general overlook this generosity. One then concludes that the inspiration Walt gave them was courage: the right to be themselves. This quality Walt Disney had of making one feel reassured, strong and at the same time supported; this power of transmitting courage and conviction I guess, that is what charisma is.
