Strategic and Operational Leadership and Working Together

In 2006, the Ford Motor Company suffered a devastating 12.7 billion dollar loss. At the time, Ford had witnessed a downgrade in stock-value and its brand mismanaged; however, under the leadership of a newly appointed president and CEO, Alan Mulally, the organization saw a remarkable return to profitability and was later in fact the only American car manufacturer to not accept a bailout from the United States government.  With Mulally’s vision and commitment, Ford was able to recommit itself to quality, develop a comprehensive strategy and implement a new sense of identity. His renowned leadership skills transformed Ford into one of the world’s leading automobile companies and the #1 automobile brand in the United States. Mulally expounds on his strategic leadership and inspires audience members to explore their own set of skills as they apply to and enhance their organization.
