Former CEO of United Airlines Oscar Munoz on What Nobody Tells You About Leadership & Turning Around A Company In Crisis

4/22/2024
When Oscar Munoz took over as the CEO of United Airlines, the company was in complete chaos. There were issues with unions, the financials weren’t looking good, customer complaints were damaging the brand reputation, and the company had gone through 8 CEOs in 10 years! During his time as CEO he managed to turn things around, securing employee and customer loyalty and putting the airline back on track. In this episode we talk about what he did to make that turnaround happen including: going on a company-wide listening tour, involving employees in the decision-making process and getting rid of leaders who didn’t align with company values. He’ll also share the terrifying story of his heart attack and how a flight attendant’s breakdown made him realize that things weren’t working. ________________ Start your day with the world’s top leaders by joining thousands of others at Great Leadership on Substack.

It begins by differentiating between empathy and sympathy and then dives into the dangers of over-empathizing. I’ll also tackle the solution: practicing empathetic concern without absorbing others’ emotions and distributing empathy across your team to create a healthier, more sustainable work culture. ________________ Start your day with the world’s top leaders by joining thousands of others at Great Leadership on Substack.
