Leading through the closure of an industry
Change is inevitable. As generations of employees change, and new technologies emerge, managing change is becoming a key skill in any manager’s leadership toolbox. Navigating change to recognize opportunity and ensure the success of the business using best practice is more important now than ever before.
In 2013, GM Holden announced that it would close its manufacturing operations. Jamie Getgood joins us in the next instalment of IML’s webinar series to talk about how he grew through his career and how Holden managed the change and closure with best practice results.
During this lunchtime session you will learn:
- The importance and impact of leadership during organizational change
- Best practice strategies for managing change as a leader
