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.
