Overview

A Framework for Leadership Success

Andrea Jung, the glamorous former head of Avon, was arguably the world’s most charismatic and effective CEO, credited with the astonishing turnaround of the venerable brand. She seemed incapable of making a wrong move. Then, in the midst of declining sales, an investigation by the SEC, and a brand in crisis, she stepped down in late 2012.

During this webcast, former Avon VP  and current leadership development consultant Deborrah Himsel will use examples from Jung’s story to explore valuable leadership lessons that can help keep today’s global executive at the top of their game.

These lessons focus on the strategic imperatives we all wrestle with in a business environment of ever-increasing volatility and complexity.

What You Will Learn

The objective of this program is to focus your attention on crucial actions that are often overlooked or not even considered — actions that are especially imperative now and in the years ahead. This includes:

  • Understanding your organization’s place in its evolutionary cycle
  • Developing a robust succession plan 
  • Finding the right mix of people, policies, and processes that drive the organization forward
  • Aligning culture and strategy
  • Being extraordinarily vigilant in at-risk global markets
  • Fighting second-order gender bias

Whether you’re a young manager just starting out or a mid-career executive, this webcast offers you perceptive lessons in why twenty-first century leaders succeed and why they fail.

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
