What does it take to lead during a company through crisis? General Motors CEO Mary Barra is an expert. She talks about the leadership lessons she learned during the turmoil of ignition switch crisis that led to over 100 deaths, millions of vehicles recalled, law suits, and investigations by regulators and Congress. She also talks about how she steered the company—employees, suppliers, unions and shareholders—to support her plan to get through the crisis.
Barra is the first female CEO of the legendary automaker and ranked No. 1 on Fortune magazine’s 2015 list of the Most Powerful Women in Business.
