Leadership Lessons And Quotes From Finding Dory

A Reel Leadership Article

Over 13 years ago, a little orange fish swam into our lives. His charm was instantaneous. That fish was Nemo of Finding Nemo.

And we’ve been wanting a sequel to Finding Nemo for just as long.

This weekend saw this wish come true. Finding Dory, a quasi-sequel of Finding Nemo, released to praise from critics. My opinion? Finding Dory deserves those accolades.

Finding Dory picks up 1 year after Finding Nemo ends. Dory, voiced by Ellen DeGeneres, begins to faintly remember something she shouldn’t have forgotten.

The memory finally clicks and Dory remembers she has a family. SHE HAS A FAMILY!

Thus, the stage is set for the next adventure of Nemo, Marlin (Nemo’s dad), and Dory.

But, the big question is: Does Finding Dory have leadership lessons? The answer? A resounding yes!
