Episode Description

Pam Lassiter, Host of the CEO Academy, interviews Dr. Richard Eglen, Vice President and General Manager of Corning Life Sciences, about “Why Should Anyone be Led by You?” This challenging question posed in an article by Goff and Jones is answered at multiple levels by Dr Eglen, a professional successfully leading 3000+ people globally. After talking about the strength of vulnerability and the importance of uniqueness, he’ll cover the difficult conversations you’re most likely to have with employees from performance to terminations, and how these can be handled with empathy and confidence. The meaning of authentic leadership and Bill George’s ideas about constantly growing and matching your behavior to context are all part of building the followership that chooses to be led by you. Richard talks about the structure he uses to make sure employees get the feedback they need and want, and the retention rates + company results show that they’re thriving. Join us!
