CEOs ‘must open their hearts and minds’ if they want to survive
“If you are trying to do things the old-fashioned way, you won’t make it.”
That’s the message to leaders from one CEO who has been at the top of his industry for decades.
The Chief Executive Officer of Fine Hygienic Holding, James Lafferty has often been described as one of the most unique and diversified CEO’s in the world today.
He is not only a successful CEO, he is an Olympic Coach, an award-winning journalist, a college professor, a competitive athlete, a philanthropist, husband and father of six.
James started from humble roots as a youth track and field coach. Three decades on his successful career includes building businesses and organizations across five continents for some of the world’s leading fast-moving consumer goods companies, including CEO roles within Procter and Gamble and Coca-Cola.
He sits down with ‘the mentl space’ to explore what leadership means today, how ‘my way or the highway’ no longer works.
And, in this powerful interview, he opens up about his personal experiences with suicide, it’s lifelong impact, and calls for more awareness.
A must-listen for any CEO or manager who aspires to be a human leader.
