Leadership Lessons And Quotes From Ghostbusters

A Reel Leadership Article

For years, more than 25, there have been rumors of a new Ghostbusters movie. Well, the new Ghostbusters is here.

And I was, and am, excited about the new movie.

I have fond memories of the original Ghostbusters. The cast was stellar.

We had Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson as the team battling ghosts. And, we can’t forget, making us laugh.

We don’t see the original team reform in what I like to call Ghostbusters 2016. Instead, we see a whole new team.

The new Ghostbusters is not a sequel. It’s a reboot with an all-female ghostbusting team. One that surprised me more than disappointed.

So, I want to share, as usual, the leadership lessons and quotes I found in the new Ghostbusters movie. Are you ready?

14 Leadership Lessons And Quotes From Independence Day: Resurgence

A Reel Leadership Article

Much like Finding Dory, Independence Day: Resurgence was a long-awaited sequel. One many people thought would be released a few years after the original.

Now, we’re 20 years past the release of Independence Day. And we finally have the sequel we’d expected.


Many of the original cast members have returned for Independence Day: Resurgence. Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Brent Spiner, and Judd Hirsch (notable for his role in Numbers) all returned.

The notable exception was the main star of Independence Day: Will Smith.

We’re given a passable reason on why Will Smith is not in Independence Day: Resurgence. His character, Captain Steve Hiller, had died.

Knowing that Will Smith would not be in this movie has turned away a lot of potential viewers. Smith, himself, even says he regrets not taking on the role once more.

15 Leadership Lessons And Quotes From Warcraft The Movie

A Reel Leadership Article

Warcraft is the latest video game to movie adaptation. The basis for the movie? Orcs invade the world of humans and chaos breaks out.

Having been a big gamer, I was excited to see the Warcraft movie. This adaptation brought feelings of nostalgia for my video game days.

With that, I know there are people who may be confused in seeing Warcraft. This movie is based on the original 1994 Warcraft video game, not the more recent World Of Warcraft MMORPG.

Going in with that expectation, Warcraft exceeded what I thought the movie was going to be.

So, let’s get to the leadership lessons from Warcraft.

WARNING: Warcraft spoilers ahead

1. Use what other leaders have left behind: As Warcraft begins, we see a warrior pick up the shield of a fallen soldier. He found something useful the other man had left behind and he began to use it.

21 Leadership Lessons And Quotes From Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 Out Of The Shadows

A Reel Leadership Article

Cowabunga dude! That’s how I felt when I heard Michael Bay was going to be back for another Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.

I’ve always been drawn to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I think the reason lies in the fact that each turtle is so different from the other.

Much like us. We’re all different but we can all work together.

With that said, let’s start this post off right. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Out Of The Shadows was full of fun and laughter. We heard laughter from the audience (or should I say I laughed out loud plenty of times) during the movie. There was also clapping and sounds of enjoyment coming from those attending.

This time around, the movie studio Paramount Pictures got the Turtles right. The action, comedy, and dialogue was spot on for the Turtles.
