Disney Creative Strategy


The Three Vital Roles: Dreamer, Realist, and Critic

Walt Disney was very successful at turning fantasies into reality. The technique Disney Creativity Strategy was modelled and developed as NLP tool by Robert Dilts, an NLP pioneer and the author of Strategies of Genius. One of the goals of NLP is to model the thinking strategies of successful people. Dilts defined this particular strategy after analyzing Disney's methods for turning his dreams into reality.

The Three Vital Roles

The Disney Creativity Strategy separates out three vital roles dreamer, realist, and critic  involved in the process of generating creating ideas and translating them into reality. The roles are explored separately for maximum clarity and effect.

  • Dreamer:  Let your mind wander freely. Produce a visionary big picture with no boundaries, limitations or restraint. Ask yourself "What do I really want, in an ideal world?" Do not let reality come into your thoughts. This is daydreaming or brainstorming time. It will most likely engage your visual imagination. Establish the payoffs of the idea.

  • Realist:  This is about organizing ideas to put your plan into practice. What would need to happen to make it real? How could you do it? Think constructively. Devise an action plan and evaluate it to determine what is realistic.   Ask Yourself "What will I do to make these plans a reality?" Establish time frames and milestones for progress. Make sure your plan can be initiated and maintained by the appropriate person or group.

  • Critic: Test your plan, look for problems, difficulties and unintended consequences. Evaluate them. Ask yourself "What could go wrong?" Think of what is missing, what is surplus, what the spins-offs will be. Define the context in which your plan is workable and problematic
